    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    First of all, I would like to recommend this course because it counted as college credit that transferred to my college. I would also like to recommend this course because it helped me become a stronger writer in ways that I never knew to be possible. However, those interested in taking this course (especially those in high school) must be honest with themselves about how much work they plan to put into college comp. It requires a lot of work to put it lightly, and those with heavy schedules already should be careful. I took this class with sports, 7 other classes, other college classes, and 5+ extracurriculars. While I ended up getting a good grade, don't do what I did. If you take this class, drop something else.

    Course highlights:

    The key items I learned during this course cannot be taught, but they can certainly be practiced. For example, I learned the art of invention writing, which plunges your paper into exploratory new depths. I learned the importance of peer review and connecting with your audience. I learned how to write a college-level paper with time constraints. I learned to deal with peers while writing a paper with them. In short, the skills I learned will not fit on this page, nor are they dispensable.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Like I said before, be careful with your course load when taking this class. While it is possible to take this class and many others with demands and get good grades, I would not recommend it because you will go crazy. Also, if you do not fancy yourself a good writer and you hate writing, you will regret this class. Are the skills gained worth the time? Absolutely. But are they worth a miserable year? No.
