As I enter college I'm faced with the choice of transferring the credits I've earned in high school taking AP exams. While I'm positive that I'll be taking credit for certain classes that I won't progress on with, like electives or courses that aren't related to my major, I'm not sure what I'll be doing with my other courses. I personally am tempted to take credit for Calc I-II and Physics I-II, but a few of my mentors are strongly against it. They are telling me that if I jump into these classes I will struggle and that the AP exams I took are absolute jokes when compared to college equivalents. How do you feel about that? Better yet how do you feel about students jumping ahead? Lastly, for those of you who are instructors, is it evident to you that a student has skipped some material coming into your course? Thank you.
