I am going into my second semester of college and it will be the second semester that I have been unable to register for General Physics (first semester of calculus based physics). I have the math prerequisites but am at a community college that has only one or two sections available; this becomes a problem because the college is split into three separate campuses 20 miles apart so scheduling is tricky. The four-year colleges I am considering transferring to in the fall (Ohio State and University of Akron) award credit for this course for scores of 4 or higher on the AP Physics C test, my questions: A) Can I do this? I understand that kids who study independently are eligible for the tests, but I have graduated from high school altogether so I am not sure if I still am eligible. B) What textbook? I hear Halliday's book is recommended a lot and there are many copies available on the ohiolink.edu library system including the solutions manuals so price wouldn't be much of a concern except that others may request it. C) Should I? AP tests are not free and I am otherwise taking a full load of classes so this is all assuming that time permits me to study on my own enough to achieve a "4" between now and May.
