I know this is supposed to either be in History or Education, but come on. Those places are very inactive.

So, has anybody here taken this course? Tell me more about it, including how hard it is, and what strategies are needed to tackle this subject.

When I was in high school, yes. It's the easiest AP history test. I got a 5, but that was years ago. It's worth taking though.

I took this A.P. in 10th grade, & it was the 1st AP that I took, I don't remember it being too hard, just a lot of memorization.
Be warned, some universities like Yale and Stanford will not give you any credits for AP euro, (others may give you up to 9, not sure why)!

Listened during class and wrote good essays on the test. It's really not that hard.

most of the top tier won't give any useful credit for any APs, and that's because they recognize that the scale is too large and a 5 on an AP test simply doesn't translate to an A in an analogous course at their colleges.

Depends on the university, but most will give credit for at least gen-ed classes.
