This class was tough.
I would recommend other students take AP US History. AP courses help prepare students for the AP exam, and they provide students with college credit. They also prepare them for the rigorous courses in college. My class was an online class with relatively easy-to-use interface. The course material was challenging, yet also very informative. The teacher was very kind and was able to explain the motivations behind historic events. The students were uplifting and encouraging and offered thought-provoking inquiries that helped solidify concepts in my mind.
My favorite part of this course was the live sessions. I was able to interact with other students and discover how they viewed difficult concepts like the inevitability of a war. I was able to talk to the teacher and ask her questions about the week's material. By taking this course I gained a better understanding of my country's history. I learned how to evaluate historical events according to the Bible. I discovered some of the ulterior motives behind great movements such as Settlement of the New World, Manifest Destiny, Indian Removal, and the Civil War. I learned how to decipher information and facts, linking names and dates with events, motivations, and consequences.

Advice for students:
It is important to come up with a schedule for studying. APUSH covers extensive amounts of material in 1 week, and it is easy to get buried under the workload. Having a studying schedule prevents you from cramming and makes the amount of assignments seem more bearable.
