Is AP Chemistry really as hard as everybody says it is. I'm allowed to take it next year as a sophomore but I'm scared because alot of people who took it said it was their GPA killer. I have a really high GPA and I would like to keep it that way but I also want as rigorous of a schedule as possible. Does having a genuine interest in the subject help or does it not matter all? Should I just take Honors Chemistry first then AP Chemistry later? If you think I should take it what supplement or tips do you have that make me successful in having a Semester A for both semesters?
