No matter what school you attend, there's always a series of hard classes. These can vary from course to course, and students may have a diverse set of reactions to them. We have chosen our toughest classes in college from statistics and impartial reviews. So, here they are, the top 10 hardest college classes at the American Intercontinental University.

1. ACCT 445 - Government/Institutional Accounting

5. MATH 133 - College Algebra
