I know that the difficulty of an AP course can largely depend on the student and the teacher, but there is usually a very general consensus among the student community. AP Psychology is generally considered easy and AP Chem is generally considered hard, right? Well, where is AP Economics on the spectrum? Is it easy (1) or really hard (10)? Is it just about right (5)? I'm curious because I'm considering my schedule for next year. So far I know I'm taking:
I need a total of five classes, preferably with three AP classes (maybe three and a half). I'm also taking two classes at the local community college, but they should not really get in the way. These are my other options:
AP Psychology (half credit)
AP Economics (the one in question)
Japanese I / Chinese I / Latin I (doesn't matter)
Honors World History (blow off class)
World Literature (total blow off class)
Right now I'm thinking AP Bio, AP Stat, AP Economics, and two other classes, depending on how hard AP Economics will be. If it's hard, I'll choose New Language I and World History or World Literature. If it's fairly easy, I'll choose AP Psychology and one of the blow off classes.
P.S. - It's AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics combined.
