I know that not all schools are the same, but is US History a requirement in most colleges to get your degree? Or will just having, say, goverment/eco be enough to satisfy all the social studies you need?

I'm wondering if I should self study and take the APUSH exam, but I really dislike history and wouldn't want to do something like this if I don't have to. (But I would prefer to not take it in college, since it'll probably be really hard.) Well, if it's required, would reading REA (and no textbook) be sufficient to get at least a 4 on the exam?

No, most colleges require a history course. Unless of course, you can manage a 4 or 5 on the APUSH test. If you write well, it is possible to self-prepare yourself for the exam, just give yourself plenty of time to learn the massive amount of info.
