This class was tough.
It was probably my favorite class senior year. Jerome is an amazing teacher and will inspire you to find a passion for history: it is not eurocentric and you'll realize that so much of what we know today is because of what has happened in the past.
Like I said earlier, definitely the fact that it isn't eurocentric. While I love me some medieval times, learning about the Chinese dynasties and growth of India + spread of religion throughout the world was really fascinating.

Advice for students:
Jerome gives you study packets. Don't be lazy - fill them out, read through them. Not only will this help you in the long run (I'm talking AP test) but it will help you do better in the class. Those packets are your holy grail. They're all I used for the AP test. Highlight them, write extra notes on them, and don't lose them!
