A Few Big Assignments
This class was tough.
AP US History enriches your general US history knowledge and helps make sense of every day news. Knowing about and understanding previous people, wars, riots, presidencies, and eras is the foundation of understanding politics, economics, and political parties. Without this course the average student cannot even make a fully educated decision on who to vote for in a presidential election. If the opportunity to take AP US History arises, definitely take this course.
One highlight of AP US History was learning about the well-known, most discussed presidents. This included Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who was president during the Great Depression. Before taking AP US History, I had heard about the New Deal plan but I did not know anything about it. In this class we went in depth about it and covered almost all aspects of it. I now know just about everything it accomplished and how it helped to end the Great Depression.

Advice for students:
Some great study tools are Course Hero and Quizlet. I used to even print out other people's Quizlet pages and study them on the way to school so that the information would be fresh in my mind for the test, which were very difficult. Also, do not slack in your homework, because that is a free grade. You will probably earn grades on tests that you are not happy with, so always do your homework fully and turn in in on time for an easy A to bring up your test grades.
