    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to all students because it is a necessity in today's digital world where we are constantly bombarded by news of global events conflicts. This course provides a basic understanding of cultures, religions, and nations. By studying the trends in world history, one can adopt a more open mind toward current events and be a become a better citizen of this world.

    Course highlights:

    For me, the highlights of this course were studying the time period before 600 CE, because it saw the rise and fall of many interesting empires and people. I learned that most civilizations follow a similar pattern of rise and decline.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use plenty of outlines, make connections and try to focus on overall trends in history.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a two year course, so it's easy to forget information. Don't study last second because the AP test is very specific.

    Course highlights:

    The movie about the Mongolians was amazing. Every really gets into it, but it is at the end of the year.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't study last second for the AP test. It's not worth it. Also, buy a review book since you'll probably forget information you learned in freshman year. DO YOUR HOMEWORK IT HELPS FOR TESTS.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it really did help me broaden my views and learn more about the world, and how our lives are impacted by the past. I've never been too good at history, and prior to this course I only really knew the fundamentals of American history. Although it was a lot of work, I really did learn so much so it was well worth it.

    Course highlights:

    We learned so much in two years of AP World, starting from the first civilizations, to how domestication of animals and plants occurred, and we even covered current history and how it connects to the past. Reading Guns, Germs and Steel was a highlight because the principles could be applied in most historical contexts. Learning history from a broad, neutral viewpoint was unique because we weren't looking at everything in relation to America, but rather learning through the eyes of different nations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The most important advice I would give for this course would be to actually put in the work. One thing that I regret is trying to memorize names and dates, rather than actually knowing what occurred. Names and dates are helpful to some extent but not if you can't explain how things occurred. Also, reading the textbook really helps, especially with those quizzes.
