    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course, if passed, will give you into into writting at most colleges. This will save you around $500! It can be a hard course if you struggle in writing because the AP course does require you to write 3 essays. You need to practice analyzing literature (especially British literature before the 1800's.) The course is pretty easy if you have a good teacher. Understanding rhetoric is key as well as being able to activly read instead of just passivly reading and not comprehending a word.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course was the books we got to read. We read alot of historic literature which is really interesting for me. Another thing i really enjoyed was doing research and writing papers. It's very unlike normal high school english classes! My favorite part was defiantly finding out that i passed, though!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try your best to understand rhetoric because it is tested heavily. Do some practice essays and multiple choice. Check out an AP Lang study book rom your library. Read the information given on the college board webpage to learn alittle more of what to expect on the test and i really reccoment the youtube series on the class; its really easy to find.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher was phenomenal, and even if I didn't understand why he was teaching some of the material to me, I am very thankful for it. Without him, my ACT score would have suffered greatly.

    Course highlights:

    I improved my comprehension and speed of reading a typical passage found on the ACT. I also branched out of my comfort zone and read and learned to appreciate books that I otherwise wouldn't have:

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just put in as much effort as you can and your teacher will meet you the rest of the way. They never want you to fail. They just want to know that you're willing to put in the work necessary to succeed.
