    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I felt that this course really did a lot to enhance my knowledge about the world. I learned about certain civilizations, religions, and people that changed the world and what events caused the world to be the way it is now. However, in the long run, I don't know how much this class really benefitted me.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning new techniques for writing papers and essays in a way that would impress college professors. It completely changed the way that I would write an essay. For example, I learned how to be cautious when looking at outside pieces of evidence. I discovered how I could choose a piece that had no bias, yet gave me what I needed to make a debatable and solid argument.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For any students taking this course, I would advise you to really read the text in depth. Many times on an exam, I would find that a few of the questions would be small details mentioned only a couple times in the text. The teacher did this to make sure you were really reading the text, so pay close attention to the big ideas and the small details.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course specifically if you want to know everything about Human interactions, downfalls, uprisings, and other specific events in history like migrations, trades, regional areas, and even more. It was a course full of rigorous material where you do indeed have to study. There's a lot to cover, and you surely will acquire a new perspective on the world based on political actions and antics.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge about our worldly history grasping higher knowledge of where we came from, and how nations and regions ended up in current and past situations. You learn about important people like philosophers, scientists, enlightenment writers, inventors, leaders and more.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the AP test, study hard, and keep up on your materials. This course is also about your heritage, so please take the time to learn your origins.
