PostSubject: AP Science!   Sun Mar 15, 2009 5:58 pm

Hey guys, so my school offers neither the AP Chem nor AP Physics course but I was planning to take one of the exams this year. I'm trying to decide which one.

I got an 800 on the SAT II Chem last year, but I basically forgot everything I learned.
I'm currently taking physics but we're still on universal gravitation right now and will be skipping heat/thermodynamics/optics to learn waves, sound, and electricity/magnetism later in the year.

So, should I review and try to take AP Chem or learn more and take AP Physics B? Thank guys you're awesome.

Ap physics will probably be a better bet, but I'm wondering why you're taking an ap test without the ap classes. Or do you mean satII tests?

No, I mean AP classes. It's basically for college credit and stuff, and because other people in my school have been self-studying for other APs as well.

My school has caused me to hate chemistry and biology so the only things left are earth science and physics and haha earth science yeah right so I took physics

but physics is cool and I like it

I didn't know you could take ap tests without taking the classes. I would still say physics, since the ap tests are a lot harder than the SATII tests.

I don't think we'll cover that much in physics by May though. Perhaps I should just order both and pay $13 to get a refund for one of them when May comes?

i'd say review AP chem. AP physics B (and C) is imo one of the hardest APs, and you already know some of AP chem.

I dunno what I'll be taking in college lol. I think both give credit that will eventually be needed.

Physics seems more useful in a general sense as college credits though, unless you go into bio or something.

Not ap physics, but next year I'll have to take calculus based physics for engineering and stuff. Then again, I guess I said that since I'm going into an engineering field, even though it is a chemical engineering field. It just seems like physics is better for a wider range of sciences.

I think I'll order both exams right now since I don't mind losing $13, but I'll probably take chem since I don't plan on majoring in physics or going into engineering.

Thanks for all the advice!

dang it I'm late. I was going to say that the Physics B AP Exam is easy if you know the concepts behind the questions. From there it's all a matter of choosing the right formula (for free response, anyway) If I remember correctly you aren't allowed a reference table for multiple choice. You did will on the Chem SATII, so go with Chem. Don't waste your time for Physics.
