This class was tough.
Not only does it strengthen any weakness you may have experienced in Regents, but it goes into a much deeper, conceptual level. Many students have recommended that this course be taken, no matter what their AP score is, as in the long run, AP Physics helps tremendously when facing college level physics.
This class isn't easy, believe me. However, with the right mindset, learning done in AP Physics should be fun. The ability to focus on a more narrow set of topics and to go deeper into them is far more beneficial to whatever you do in Regents. Kinematics had to be the highlight of this course, as problems could get to be so complex, however the satisfaction of finally completing them was amazing.

Advice for students:
Definitely make sure you're prepared to put in work for this class. Don't expect it to be one of those classes that you can just blow off. This course is rather rigorous for those just being introduced into the world of Physics. Ensure that you're strong in math, although in AP, you won't be needing as much of it. However, a Calculus background will be really helpful, as I have found that AP Calc AB coincides nicely with AP Physics.
