    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Lang really helped me mature and know exactly how to analyze not only fiction, but mainly nonfiction. Before I took AP Lang, I did not know how to analyze text very well, but after taking this class with Smutzer, it all finally clicked and I was able to pass AP Lang and the exam with a 4. Definitely worth the stress, in my opinion.

    Course highlights:

    I just enjoyed being able to finally know how to analyze text. After taking this class, AP Literature was super easy in comparison.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard and try to make yourself understand the subject. AP Lang isn't a joke. You actually learn some pretty valuable skills in the class.
