    I got the calc book. I am glad that I didn't attempt the IB diploma - it is a waste of time and energy. Hell, I would have been better off taking easier AP tests because they correspond more to UC classes - I would have gotten credits in specific areas instead of general credits.

    Math Is Hard,
    IB is an acronym for International Baccalaureate program. Here is a link that'll tell you all you need to know about it :http://www.ibo.org/

    I'm an IB grad. I got 54 hours of classes out of high school. I worked my ass off. I considered it in no way a waste of my time.

    I got the calc book too. Hmm, am I teaching the wrong class? Did anyone get a physics book?

    BTW, at our school, the IB students are just about the best students/people you can meet. Occasionally, there are those who are in the program because of the intellectual "status," and some have an exaggerated sense of self-worth, but IMO, those are the exceptions.

    What does '54 hours of classes' mean? Is that per week/month/year?
    I have a friend in Canada doing IB, and it seems pretty tough.

    Calculus aussi. We're a self-selected group after all.

    54 hours of college credit, where a class is normally 3 hours.

    Ah, why am I not surprised? You're one of the smartest people on the forum, chroot.
    Anywho, I'm guessing you got the full diploma?

    oh, and why is everyone getting the calc book? My mom got the IB history book.

    I'm a Calculus book. It's amazing how by just asking a few questions they can identify people who frequent PF (a.k.a. Calculus Books).

    Another Calc book.
