    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Rick Barbe has been one of my personal favorite teachers. When I took the course he really made it clear and adamant that he wanted us to be prepared for the AP Exam. We were given DBQ's and numerous essays in order to really enhance our mind and expand our mental capacity. When it came time to take the exam not only did I feel prepared for the exam, but my confidence was supported by my vast knowledge of US history

    Course highlights:

    The highlights included the following - debates -class discussions - humourous teacher

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It'll be tough the first semester because any AP course honestly challenges you to think outside the box and change your typical method of thought. However keep your pace constant and study in different efficient methods and take lots of notes BEFORE class so that way you are prepared for class with questions.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, because it teaches about the history of our country and it is very important for future generations in America to be informed of the history. Having citizens who are educated on previous occurrences in the history of the nation helps to prevent mistakes in history from becoming a reoccurrence.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course were learning about the colonization of America, the Civil War, WW1, the roaring 20s, the Great Depression, WW2, the Vietnam and Korean War, the Cold War, Civil Rights, and the Reagan administration along with all of the other presidents as well. It was very informative and I learned a deeper understanding of the causes and effects of all of those events.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would recommend not just using what you learn in class alone, but also reading the textbook chapters and taking notes to make sure you are getting all of the information and knowledge needed to succeed in the course.
