This class was tough.
Most people who take this course end up getting college credit for it. Mrs. Ericson is a very thorough teacher who goes over everything you need to know at least twice before the AP. She does a month long review at the end of the year that puts everything together. However, this class is pretty difficult to make an A in. If you're looking for a GPA boost, this class might not be the way to go. I wish I knew how much effort I'd be putting into studying for each and every test before I took this course.
The labs were actually a great way of putting what we learned in class into action. It helped me to understand what I was learning in class in a more hands-on way.

Advice for students:
Do all the extra practices the day she goes over the lesson. This will help you understand the next day's lesson much better and reduce the amount of time you spend studying overall.
