Would it be worth it to self study AP Psych?

In the area of social sciences/humanities, I've already taken AP European History, AP US History, and AP Music Theory and gotten 3's or higher on them. And currently I'm taking AP French Language and AP US Gov. As far as impressing college admissions goes, it's probably already too late as I'm a senior. Aside from that I was just wondering if it would be worth it for the college credit considering how many exams I've already taken and that I'm going to take, whether or not taking the exam would be a waste.

    It depends on the college you go to. Because AP Psych is considered to be one of the easier AP's, many colleges don't even offer credit for it. That being said, if you're interested in the material, definitely study it. (I self-studied my sophomore year and found it to be fascinating.) If the college(s) you're considering offer credit for it, it might be a good idea also to study it, just to get out of GIRs.
