    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is challenging. It teaches those who aren't good at studying exactly how to study. Even if you don't pass the AP exam, you'll be more likely to make a better grade in the college calculus course, because you'll be knowledgeable about the subject already.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the challenges and the sense of accomplishment whenever you beat those challenges.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study! Also, practice problems! People lose so many points on the AP exam from simple mistakes and not showing their work. Always write everything down on free responses. Even if you have no idea how to get to an answer, writing the formula and rewriting the formula after plugging everything in can give you half of the credit for that problem. Last, but not least; there is NO CRYING in Calculus!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anybody that is good at math. Mostly because you can earn college credit from passing the AP test, I believe most colleges require a 4 or 5 to gain credit, but even if you don't do so well on the test, you will be so much more prepared to take it in college. You'll look like a prodigy in there, as you will most likely remember most of the things taught.

    Course highlights:

    From this course, I gained a better overall understanding of calculus, obviously. But, more than that, it also helped me communicate. There were certain things I wouldn't quite understand automatically, so I first spoke with my classmates about it. There was usually somebody that understood what the teacher was talking about, so that was helpful. Also, I would need to go to the teacher occasionally if nobody else could help me.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Math has always come somewhat easy to me, so there is not a whole lot I can personally offer on preparing for the class, but from talking to classmates I can tell you a little bit. Of course, as with any class, studying is the key. Make sure you keep ALL worksheets, notes, quizzes, etc. for studying close to the test, they're extremely helpful to review when you're about to take the AP test. Also, use your resources well. If you feel like you are struggling on a topic, DO NOT just ignore it, never be afraid to ask your teacher or classmates for help. If you would rather not ask somebody, go online. There are so many great free websites you can go to for help, Khan Academy is one that comes to mind, so always remember that. Anyways, that is all I can offer on the class, definitely check it out if you are good at or enjoy math, good luck!

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a class you should only take if you are good at math, and if you have a good teacher. While it isn't as hard as some people say it is, to me anyways, it is definitely not an easy class unless you actually take it seriously and do your homework, study, and make sure you pay attention in class.

    Course highlights:

    There aren't any life lessons that you will learn from this course, so don't take it if that is what you're looking for. It's just math, much different math than you are used to, unless you took pre-calculus.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to study, pay attention in class, and do your work. Don't take it likely, it is a difficult class.
