This class was tough.
I would recommend this class just for the simple fact that the course would allow the student to understand how human activities impact the geographic world around us. The student would be able to notice how changes in the human world directly correlate with various factors of the outside world.
The highlight of this course, in my opinion, was when we learned about Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs for short. This lesson in the AP Human Geography course taught us how much of an impact GMOs had on our society when it comes to consumption and economic profit. The project we had to do for this lesson required us to go to a grocery store and search for products that contained GMOs and products that were Non-GMO. I personally learned a lot about the types of chemicals that go into my body when ever I consume Genetically modified Food.

Advice for students:
Definitely read whatever text information your teacher tells you to. The notes given during class may help somewhat, but when it comes to tests and exams most of the information comes from the textbook. It may seem pointless to read the textbook in the moment, but that class will suddenly become a lot more difficult if you don't.
