This class was tough.
In this course you learn several real world applications that relate to physics and manufacturing. You also gain a valuable sense of how hard you will have to work to get good grades in college classes.
I scored very well on the AP Calculus AB exam for my hard work in this course. One of the most important things I learned from this course was that it's very important to ask your teacher questions when you don't understand something. Everything builds off of basic concepts taught and it is extremely important that you understand everything from the beginning.

Advice for students:
When test day is right around the corner, make sure that you remember and understand the formulas taught in the class. At the beginning of the year, my teacher gave everyone in the class one sheet of paper containing all of the formulas and concepts that we had learned throughout the year. When test day came around, I went back to the sheet of paper and went through everything we had learned and made sure I completely understood all of it to the point that I could explain it to someone who didn't know calculus. If your teacher doesn't do that for you, I would still strongly suggest writing down all of the formulas and concepts you have learned on one or two sheets of paper so that you have a quick reference with all of the important notes in one place.
