Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I absolutely recommend taking AP United States History because of the wonderful amount of knowledge one will obtain throughout the school year. Learning about a country's history is essential for recognizing and analyzing present events and being able to give a clear and unbiased response to misinformed statements about a country's past.
I gained a massive understanding of the United States' government and history. The highlight of this course is towards the end of the school year, when you finally see the entire timeline of United States' history come together into a intertwined web between present and past. It is an amazing feeling to be able to see past events shape recent events. I have only APUSH to attribute to this understanding!
