A history class which is aimed for 10th or 11th graders to enhance their knowledge of our nations history and have them become scholars. It is also a good workout carrying the 20 textbooks and thousands of worksheets to class everyday to sit through boring lectures. Each week there is usually one or two tests taken on the main textbook given just to fuck over your grade, unless you find it worthwhile to study for 16 hours the night before. Every once in a while, you will be forced to write a dumb essay or DBQ over stupid topics from the past that is not really necessary to know. At the end of the year there is an AP exam which you can earn college credit on. That is the only reason why students take this class. Regular days are easy as you sit in a desk with a notebook listening about elections of the past and virtually everything to know about everything and everyone. Students are usually daydreaming at this time. Also, taking notes is made more boring due to the fact that you are learning things you take a test on 2 weeks prior to learning it. What is the point of taking a chapter 26 test when in class you are learning about chapter 21, which can be confusing. Only take ap us history if you want college credit, are a robot, or enjoy studying like a buckwild hog.

"Today we are gathered here to remember a beloved student, whose suicide was caused by stress in AP US History..."
"We will have a test every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, a project every week, and 2-3 DBQs and essays per week."
-A class to prepare you for the AP exam that probably 35% of the student population passes in the United States depending on the teacher you have.
-Students copy tidbit information off AP notes without actually retaining any substance because it's boring and putting it eloquently,sucks balls.
When in AP Us History I learn information that I am going to use in the real world and the rest of my life.
Bob: "Hey Ron, how'd you do on the History test?"
Ron: "I got a 78! Whoo!"
Bob: "Nice man!" *high fives*
Bob and Ron aren't your average scene-kid slackers who don't give a shit, they're diligent AP students. No exaggeration there! I got a 78 once and was completely euphoric.
"no, sorry i cant. im too busy studying for my ap us history test."
