    200 AP classes?

    over 200 AP classes is a lot. at my school, there are about 13. i suggest taking all the APs you can handle. in high school, the AP courses are easier than the equivalent college courses, so they won't be too bad.

    its some online program that the school is gonna be joining. its free and you still get collage credit so its really cool. any recomendations? it'll be my junior year so i only have 2 years to take classes.

    Wow, 200 sounds like a lot. Do you know how many a typical student would take? Just ask around and see what other people do.

    personally, i have taken three ap classes (government, calc, statistics) and one honors course (physics). it hasn't been bad at all. in fact, some dare to load up with 5 AP's and an honors class. its just high school, so how hard can it possibly be, right? :wink:

    I dont think there are 200+ DIFFERENT AP courses. According to collegeboard:

    "With 34 courses and exams across 19 subject areas, AP offers something for everyone. "

    Art History
    Calculus AB
    Calculus BC
    Computer Science A
    Computer Science AB
    English Language
    English Literature
    Environmental Science
    European History
    French Language
    French Literature
    German Language
    Comp Government & Politics
    U.S. Government & Politics
    Human Geography
    Latin Literature
    Latin: Vergil
    Music Theory
    Physics B
    Physics C
    Spanish Language
    Spanish Literature
    Studio Art
    U.S. History
    World History

    As for advice, dont take a class you are not going to do well in. If you dont like Art, dont take that AP. However, if you think you can handle it then try it.
