    It's a lot of homework and doing it all in one day before or in the due date is possible but stressful. I'd start on the pak early but slowly

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think APUSH is a great, informative course to take, as the insight it provides on American History feels much more substantial than regular U.S history. However, It will be difficult for those who have trouble with memorizing key ideas, more so than any other course I have taken thus far. It is satisfyingly challenging, to say the least.

    Course highlights:

    Its not just about the knowledge you get about the past. In APUSH you can apply the current events you are studying into the present, and it is definitely surprising to see the trends in strategies that politicians used compared to less modern times, i find that really interesting on its own.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I know i said that memorizing is a huge part of APUSH, but a mistake that people make is putting too much emphasis on superficial knowledge, which the AP exam punishes students dearly for, as a thorough understanding of the material is necessary in even something as trivial as a multiple choice question. As someone who got a 4 on the exam I feel like what kept me from a 5 was my blind spots in certain aspects of the course, a weakness I was not aware of till testing day. Make sure you really cover all the bases before you take a big test, and trust me, you will have many of those.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course really is enjoyable and you do get to learn a lot about American history in new and unexpected ways. We were able to learn about how women were the secret weapons that really helped the country survive during World War II.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the constant essay writing, because eventually I learned how to think quickly and manage my time well. Through this history course I was also able to improve in language arts as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have fun learning the history and do extra research on things that interest you. This will make the course even more enjoyable. Don't forget to study and learn your course material well, otherwise you won't be able to write proper essays.
