I took all honors or advanced placement classes.
Advanced Placement US History we had to read like the first 6 chapters, write essays and do many worksheets. Then had a big test on it the first week.
Honors English and AP Language had us read multiple novels and write many essays.
Advanced Placement Calculus had 700 math problems over the summer.
The history one I did in one day, basically 18 hours straight.
Both English ones (one soph year, one junior year) I did in 2 days each. I read the novel then wrote 20ish essays one day then did the same for the next novel the next day.
I cheated on my calc one because I knew how to do the stuff, and it was just writing equations and shit. I essentially copied an A student from a year above me's assignment from the last year, but then I corrected the ones he got wrong.
Basically the last 3 days of summer were homework days. Other people worked on it all summer. Yeah I got A's on it too
Oh and I tried to sell my calc one to a kid the next year, but they changed the assignment. F*ckers.
