    Even after the redesign of the course, AP U.S. Government on FLVS is absolutely TERRIBLE. It does not prepare you for the AP exam by any means. There are certain Supreme Court cases that you must learn, and the course merely just gives you a definition for them. Despite the course saying that there is an online textbook, the teacher claims that there is none, so you rely purely on the "lessons" on FLVS. The assignments are tedious and difficult. The teacher asks DBA questions that were literally not in the lessons. The test is AP style times two and are not passable without notes and googling answers. Going through my Princeton Review book, I knew less than half of the AP material. You might as well just self-study for this exam, unless you want the GPA booster. It is an easy A as long as you stay on pace and take good notes.

    Does anyone have feedback regarding AP Calc BC (for someone who already took AP Calc AB in school) and AP Stats?

    I took AP Micro online with flvs. The class is not too difficult when you try. I am an econ major, so the course came easy to me. I got a 4 on the exam, and the other person I took it with got a 5. The FLVS course is probably the best I've ever taken. VERY much prepares you for the AP Exam. I just caution you that Module 2-3 will be difficult (cost curves) but keep with it and you'll be fine. I took the course in 3 weeks (I worked on it for hours daily, finished Mod 1 and 2 within the first two days).

    Any recent experiences in AP Computer Science A on FLVS? Or any other online course like CTY or Stanford EPGY? John Hopkins CTY has options for a 6 month or 9 month course. I was thinking of taking the 6 month course This means I will need to start in Nov 2020 so that it finishes right around April end. Just in time for the AP exams in May. Did you all plan similar timelines?

    I took AP Computer Science A last year (May 2019 exam). Excellent course. 6 months is how long I took.

    Does anyone have a more recent review of AP Psychology on FLVS, preferably taken it within the past two years? The most recent review of AP Psych I can find is from a few years ago.

    My D took it. She liked it. A lot of vocab (like 900 terms), but she said the concepts were not difficult. She just made flash cards for all the vocab terms; she ended up getting an A and passing the AP exam.

    Can someone share how much time flvs APCS takes? I know people are saying 10 hours per week for 30 weeks, but if you already know vars, loops, and arrays very well, how long would it be? For context, I am USACO Silver, so I can do complex word problems pretty well.

    For anything thinking about AP Psych: Do it. I am currently doing AP Psych from FLVS, and I'm on track to finishing both semesters in a total of 2 weeks. The journals take 2-3 hours each which I find extremely boring, but the assignments and quizzes don't take more than 10 minutes each.
