Not me since I'm in college but I had to take some during high school. My sister has a few next week, I think she'll do well.

It's similar to higher level high school classes except it offers a test at the end of the year so you can get college credit. It's actually not very difficult, you just have to memorize your way through it http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

So far I've only taken three courses, concluding my sophomore second semester. I plan to take six or eight more AP classes during junior and senior year. They sure are difficult for me. However, not so difficult as to earn a "B" in any of my classes. :D I just hope to earn at least two 4s on the AP European History and AP Environmental Science tests. Which tests are your sister taking?

TLR, AP classes in high school earn you the same credit you would earn for the same college class. Like bumblebee said, they are less strenuous since your grade is based on more than four tests. However, the materials studied and the final test taken are of the same difficulty. The more AP classes you take and pass (as judged by the final test, which ranges from a score of one to five), the more likely you will be able to get into the college of your choice. A score of three is passing, a score of two to one is failing, and a score of four to five is exemplary.

Starting Monday, we will begin a bevy of AP testing. After the final, we literally need to do nothing in our AP classes. At least I have something to look forward to. :D :D :D

EDIT: It's similar to the International Baccalaureate program, only the college credit you earn in an AP class will only count in America. Do you guys have the International Baccalaureate program?
