This class was tough.
If you do not plan on pursuing any sort of history major, I would not reccomend this course. It is very intense and as someone who is not majoring in history I found it to be a lot of stress that I could have avoided my junior year.
I gained writing skills. We wrote a lot of document based question responses and free response question responses. This helped me strengthen my ability to write short essays during a timed session.

Advice for students:
If you are considering taking this course be prepared to write a lot of outlines. Don't wait until the night before to do them. Take the week or so given to you and do it in parts.
