Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
This class was tough.
I am not going to lie, this course is extremely tough, but finishing the course and closing your AP Exam booklet is quite the rewarding feeling. I have never been challenged as much as I was when I took AP Euro with Mr. Trabacco, and it helped teach me even more about myself. I learned how to truly apply all the studying skills I've learned over my schooling years, and I am so glad I took this course. Before taking this class, I would mentally prepare yourself to be challenged everyday because there are no "light" days. Each day will be filled with note taking or writing DBQs; however, I would recommend this class to any one who is willing to work very hard for their good grades.
By taking this course, I learned more about myself than I did about the 1800s French Revolutions. I began to understand the best ways for me to study, to read, and to comprehend large pieces of text. Other than learning about myself, I came to have a real appreciation for the European culture. Sure, the material was a bit dry for someone interested in the sciences, but each day something new was brought to my attention, whether it be a short interesting fact, or learning about an entire war that I did not know existed.

Advice for students:
This class is purely about time management. Each night there will be chapters to read, pages to study, and notes to review, and it is essential to do it. If you devote an hour or two a night to just reading over the book and quizzing yourself in your notes, it is very easy to succeed in the class. Of course, by the end of the year, the will to go on will be very slight, but if you can push through it I can guarantee it is possible to earn an A in the course.
