    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is great, and she engages the class. World history is very interesting and to see the causes and effects playing out, and the possibilities of what could or could not have happened if things had occurred a bit differently are endless and fascinating to think about.

    Course highlights:

    There was so much covered in the AP World History course! I would say my favorite was when we learned about the Ottoman Empire, it was amazing learning about the culture, politics, and especially the architecture and how things changed when the Mongols came or even during the World Wars. That was my highlight because it was the most fascinating to me, but each person will find something they're fascinated about in history, even if you're not big on history like me, you'll find something that will engage you. In fact, I still remember aspects of world history I never thought I would remember a year later, and I even used that knowledge in my other classes, such as in AP English Language and in AP U.S. History.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're struggling or not as interested in history, I would recommend finding your own way of learning the material covered in class, because sometimes that's not enough for you or just for the repetition of material through different mediums could help tremendously. I remember I struggled a bit for about a semester until I found this website with an outline of chapters from our textbook, just the main points. I studied those notes, and I did extremely well in class thereafter. I also found crash course videos helpful, having the same repetition from lectures in class, it helped me to remember material much easier, which is why I still remember quite a lot from World History. Adding in humor to history, such as "Oh, there the Mongols go again" allowed parts of history to stick in my brain too. Basically, find a path that helps you engage in history and understand it better, because being in class is not the only way you will succeed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course has a lot of work load but is managable.

    The highlights of the course was that you don't have to memorize dates. Just have to be able to analyze different situations and why it matters.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to stay on top of your work and take notes over every chapter.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    World History is a class that I recommend very greatly, Even though Ap is very rigorous, its a class that is very fun and exciting. History is a class that awakened my senses because After the course I was able to find a viable answer to all the hiden questions that I never knew. What made me appreciate the course even more, was my teacher. My teacher was very thoughtful yet stoic, she drilled all the information into our heads, so that the information, would be ingrained in our minds before the AP test.

    Course highlights:

    The 5 topics that I really enjoyed learning about was, The Ottomans, Imperialism, The Mongols, China, and WW1. those 5 topics were really fun to break down and learn about. Yes sometimes it was challenging to understand specific information, and attack the questions presented to me on tests and quizes in class, It was really fun to understand certain aspects of the world. I enjoyed China the most out of those 5 topics, because the same recurring theme happens in China, so it's easier to understand. Overall World history was broken down to era's and each era was very fun!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would really advice them to take this course, because it's very fun and entertaining. Also the course teaches you a lot and helps you become more aware of your surroundings and to overcome the "hermit" nature that all of us humans are in (sometimes we dont like to learn new things outside of what we are used to and we dont like to think outside of the box because it might be hard). World history is a course that I really enjoyed, and even though it was an Ap course, which means it's very time consuming and requires a lot of effort and pulling all-nighters once in a while, It's a really enjoyable course.
