I am in my Junior year of high school, and trust me, you will receive a lot of homework in those classes. Even though I have chosen not to take AP US History this year, many of my friends do. The book is a college level book. There are no pictures or big font words. The words are tiny and very difficult to read, especially if you would rather not to. If this would be your first AP history course, I would not recommend it. I took AP World History for two months last year ( I eventually dropped out of it into a standard class, but I did make a 100 in AP World History for the first nine weeks). You would have to have a rigorous schedule that would set aside reading 5 -10 pages every night. You should expect a test and numerous essays every week. Personally, I could do it, but I wanted to enjoy my high school years, not spend it studying 24/7. I am taking AP Pre-Cal this year, so in AP Statistics, you should probably expect homework every day, and a quiz or test every week. I recommend taking that class based on how strong your math skills are. If you think you can handle it, then go for it :D.
