We all know what AP courses are.
Those fine classes that make our GPAs drop (well not mine...) and have us fail a test at the end of the year.

Are you/did you taking/take any AP courses in high school?
If so, how many have you taken/did you take/on track to take?
Of the AP courses you've taken, which is your favorite? Least favorite?

One. AP European History. It's OK.

AP US History this year. It's a total joke. This is the teacher's second year teaching. He's originally from Britain, too. And our Euro teacher is American. How ironic.

Next year I am taking AP Euro History, AP English, and AP Psych. Should be fun.
I get obsessively manic over things. It's a problem.

They are really hard but they are definitely worth it for college

That's funny because I'm so not an overachiever. If I can't get my homework done in my one study hall, I don't bother doing it at all. I don't study for anything, not because I know the material, just because I don't care enough or am just too lazy. My mom has even criticized me for doing just enough to get by, and that's the truth. I just do what I need to do, and sometimes not even that.

The only class that I'll actually do at home is English. I'll work on my essays and read the books at home. Otherwise, school stays at school and does not interfere at home. I still don't study for English, though.

I only do the ones which are, to me, easy. AP Chemistry and AP Computer Science this year; AP Calculus and AP Physics and AP Statistics next year. AP Chem seems notorious for a hard exam that only at most a couple people in each school pass, but I'm the top of my class; CS's exam looks like it'll be ridiculously easy.

I took AP World History last year only because it's the only AP class 10th grade students can take and I hated it and failed the exam D:

If it makes you feel any better, I passed with a "3".

Are you/did you taking/take any AP courses in high school? Yes, I'm a junior and am currently taking AP "English Language and Composition" (AP English 3) and AP Government and Politics.
If so, how many have you taken/did you take/on track to take? These are my first two AP classes.
Of the AP courses you've taken, which is your favorite? Least favorite? No favorites, really.

Next year, I'm probably taking AP English 4, AP US History II, and AP Statistics.

I'm lucky, as mine aren't that hard, but I agree--they definitely are worth it for college.

This is me, except I do my homework. Lately, I've been trying to know all the dates of my test and quizzes and study for them, and it's sort of working well. Before (and kind of still now), I'd always be that guy who said "There's a test?" the day it's given. Even my parents criticized me for not caring enough.

Also, you're very lucky that you can get all of your homework done in study halls. I only have two a week that last about 45 minutes each.
I dunno hao 2 put imgs heer :(

Mikoyan

I'm currently taking US History, Biology, Comparative Government, Calculus AB, and Psychology (self-study). Next year, I'm looking at Literature, Physics, Calculus BC, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, US Government, Music Theory, and Environmental Science (HNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG). Last year I took European History, and got a 4.

My most favorite is Comparative Government (because our teacher coaches football and baseball; he doesn't give a poop if he cusses in class. He's also a intercourse ing psycho); my least favorite is Biology, mainly because the teacher can't teach for crap.

Take my life now ;_;

Java

I never answered my own question.

Last year I took AP World History and got a 3.

This year I'm taking:
AP Spanish
AP English Language and Composition
AP US History
AP Biology
AP Psychology

Next year I'm taking:
AP Literature
AP Environmental Science
AP US Government
AP Macroeconomics
AP Calculus AB

A total of 11 AP courses. ;__;

My favorite so far is probably AP Psychology.
My least favorite is definitely AP Bio. Like Mikoyan, my teacher can't teach for crap and I KNOW I'm going to fail the AP test because of that.
I don't know why I felt the need to write AP in front of every single one of the courses...

What are these one digit numbers that everyone's talking about? Are they like some sort of special end-of-class grade? I don't pay attention to my grades anyway, so meh... (at my own).

Usually, if not every time you take an AP course, you take the AP test at the end of the year.
It's a standardized test administered by CollegeBoard and it determines how "qualified" you are in the subject.

The scale ranges from 1 - 5 with 5 being the highest.
A 3 or above is considered passing.

The reason that these tests are so important is that they determine whether or not you can get college credit for the courses you take. Most colleges will only accept 4's or 5's on the test in order to get credit, even though a 3 is passing.

Thanks. I guess I didn't know because this is my first year taking AP classes. Hope we all pass!
