    Getting credits early is not the only reason why people take AP classes/tests.

    I wish my college textbooks were as cheap as AP tests. If you think AP tests are expensive, you ain't seen nothing yet.

    APs are the cheapest college credits you can get. I attend a Comm College on top of HS, and the state only covers 2/3- which is $200 left for one 5-credit class (what you could skip with AP).

    Each textbook costs around $100 per class, multiply by four classes, multiply by three quarters, and bam. Thats how much not even including tuition.

    You might think APs are expensive (and yes, thats how CollegeBoard gets rich), but its still thr cheapest. When you start applying for student loans, you'll realize how $12k is different from $175.
