    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I personally find Chemistry fascinating. My teacher made learning everything we needed to know easy and fun. The Periodical Table was provided to us during test and quizzes, which helped a lot when it came to finding protons, electrons, and the charges of each element.

    Course highlights:

    This Chemistry course covers everything necessary for the Chemistry SOL. You learn about electrons and all their properties, you learn to make formulas with elements and their charges. You learn the different tricks that the Periodical Table gives you to make things easier.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always have the Periodical Table handy when doing homework, show effort in the work you do because it's not very hard. I also recommend getting to know the Periodical Table before hand, just to get yourself better acquainted with the information it holds.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class not only consists of interesting and thought-provoking course material, but it is also taught by an engaging and laid back teacher that will keep the class enjoyable with many demonstrative labs and experiments. Some crucial advice that I would give to new students, however, is that as an AP class you are required to take the AP exam at the end of the year and the course does not cover all the information covered on the test. The teacher will provide an AP manual at the beginning of the year that covers all the material, so it is recommended that you utilize and take advantage of the information and study on your own, especially as the AP exam date nears.

    Course highlights:

    One of the most thought-provoking topics that I will forever find myself pondering is the concept of intelligence. This class helped me realize that intelligence is much, much more than one's capacity to do math problems or memorize history facts. In fact, it is as broad and debated a topic as it is a subjective one, as technically intelligence is what you make of it. Whether you believe it to be an individual's potential for learning or based on what the individual already knows, or whether you believe in a single category of intelligence or multiple, this course will certainly help you explore and develop your own definition of intelligence. Another thing I learned in this class that I am certain I will remember is the proposed stages of development that occur throughout the lives of us humans. The unit of developmental psychology discusses the ideas of psychologists like Piaget and Erikson and how they influenced the world of psychology with their ideas of how the human mind developed and matured from birth until adulthood. What is probably the most important thing I learned from this class, however, is the concept that virtually anything psychological is also biological. Things like emotions aren't created and experienced in a vacuum; certain biological process occur simultaneously. Hormone and neurotransmitter releases affect how humans express emotions, and factors like environment and genetics affect how we perceive information and handle it. These are lessons that have changed my perspective on the world around me, and I plan on carrying them with me for as long as I live.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course covers quite a lot of material, however the teacher of this course is very laid back and does not assign a lot of homework and does not have a fast-paced class environment. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but because of this, I found the CLASS easy but studying for the test more difficult. It is important that future students realize that they will most likely not cover the entire course's material by the day of the AP exam and that they must be ready to prepare ahead of time on their own time. If you enjoy psychology and are capable of studying adequately on your own, however, you will most likely enjoy this class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is very challenging to take chemistry in high school but it helps you learn more about science when you go to college.

    Course highlights:

    I learned and kinda mastered stoichiometry. It was the easiest part of chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Cheat Sheets of important things like a mental map on paper then when it comes to the test on the scrap paper write what you remembered.
