    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course to any student, regardless of prior academic performance. It provides you with invaluable information about our country's history, and at the end of the day, all you really have to do is read the textbook. It can be boring on occasion, but everyone is capable of it, and that is why I recommend this class to all types of students.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course for me was learning about segments of our nation's history that other classes had previously left unexplored. Because or APUSH I now have a wealth of information about our country's history at my fingertips, and can better understand the sociopolitical and economic challenges we are faced with today. I was particularly interested in tracking our country's political evolution, and found myself constantly drawing parallels between the parties of history and our modern political parties. I was also interested in better understanding the life of the average American in each time period. Though dead, they are still Americans, and their past experiences can help us better understand our own now. I believe that I have gained a more worldly and politically informed perspective because of APUSH, and because of my specified interests.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook. Take notes, understand vocabulary. Look for turning points. What events, treaties, elections, legislation, wars, amendments, are significant and which aren't? Understand the perspective of minorities and women in America, as College Board is focusing more and more on their history, which often goes untold.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for people interested in learning about U.S History.

    Course highlights:

    The one topic that I really liked was learning about the atomic bomb, and how till today many people feel the U.S was wrong for using it and many feel the U.S was justified for using it.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to read lots of chapters and spending time doing document based questions and long essays (without documents). Make sure you have flash cards to help you study.
