I don't mean that in a sense of how many hours of homework because I know that will vary from school to school. What I mean is, is it just memorization? For example, a lot of people say APUSH is all memorization. Or, does AP Chem require critical thinking and make you apply what you learned for difference situations?
Also, is it possible to take it without Chem 1/ How much does Chem 1 help?
