    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    History is not my strongest subject, but the class was a bunch of fun. The teacher made it fun.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher was awesome, do not go off of his notes though. He likes to use his own notes, but the tests are from the book. So read the book. I learned that when a teacher tells you, "you do not need to use the book for this class," you still need your book.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed you need to take notes, study, and do your work. It's that simple.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course! It prepares you very well for quick critical thinking! The tests and material can be hard sometimes but it is worth it! You will need to use analytical thinking to write essays in order to do well in the course and on the AP test. Though I didn't do very great in this course, it prepared me extremely well for AP World history with Mr.Gibbons! (which i also highly recommend).

    Course highlights:

    The best parts that I really liked about this course is sometimes the material but especially the teacher and the class. Mr. Bato does a great job explaining the important events and concepts that he knows are going to be on the AP test. He also makes jokes! The material is hard to absorb especially for sophomores but it prepares students to take even harder ap classes along the way. I learned AP US history in depth unlike middle school where you just talk about the story and events. APUSH challenges students to think critically and put your english writing skills to use which will be useful in college as well if you are planning to attend!! You'll probably still remember some of the material even when you come into college. To use myself as an example, I will never forget that Eisenhower created the interstate highway act or the Watergate scandal.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take very good notes and add little things to his lecture notes that you feel is important! This is an important skill that you will need to develop to succeed in college so think of it as practice. Maybe form study groups or chats with people taking the class so you can study (or rant) class material. Study for tests beforehand, do not ever wait until the last minute! But do not fear, there are many students who survived this course so you can become one of them :)
