I'm a high school senior preparing for the AP Calculus AB exam. The school I am attending for college awards credit (placement) for both Calc 1 and 2, if I receive a score of a 5 on the exam, meaning I would begin taking multivariable calculus (i think tis thier equiv of calc 3 course).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Otherwise if I get a 4 I will skip only calc 1 and begin with calc 2.

My dilemma is that I don't really know if my calculus course AP Calc AB (i'm not in the BC class) is covering material from calc 2. Granted I would take some time to study it over the summer if I was able to skip it but do you think it would be beneficial to take calc 2, would I have to spend way too much time learning it myself anyways? or Could I get by beginning in multivariable calc.

By the way Physics (Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathemetics) is my intended major

Thanks in advance for the help.
