I will be taking calc bc (took calc ab already), stats, pysch, and physics b. How hard are there ap courses? Which ones do you recommend me studying for over the summer?

    The difficulty of the courses depends on the teacher.

    ^definitely. psych is by far the easiest of all those courses though.

    If you're taking the Pysch course, then you don't need to study that over summer. Easy exam. You should be fine for Calc BC too if you've taken Calc AB

    Stats is an easy exam, especially since you've already taken Calc AB. You could study some over summer

    But really, the main thing might be Physics B to study. And even that is half math related. So hoenstly, you dont need to study, but you can.

    You've taken Calc AB, so BC will be a complete joke. Psych and stats are also jokes. Don't study for those over the summer. Physics B is not a joke, but it's not very hard either. There's really no reason to study over the summer, but if you are going to you might as well do physics; some of the stuff isn't intuitive at first.

    Stats and Psych will be easy...Physics would be the worst one out of those by far.

    Environmental Science and Bio are good if you like science.

    just on a side note, if you study an ap ONLY during the summer, and dont start reviewing/ practicing in, say, February, you will forget everything, and the time and energy will go to waste. Well, IMHO.
