self study AP euro and AP psychology

eburke9eburke9 Registered User Posts: 9 New Member
I'm considering self studying AP euro and AP psychology next year, because they're not offered as classes at my school. I was going to get a textbook over the summer and try doing a little work every week throughout the year. How much time do I need to devote to studying for each course? I'm taking AP world as a class next year, and that class alone has about six hours of homework per week. I'm also taking honors chem and trig and they have a fair amount of homework too. I want to maintain an average of over 95 in all of these courses. Do you think I'll be able to handle two AP's outside of those classes?

    Not AP: Euro it will be a tough class to self study. Furthermore, AP: Psychology is more realistic if your also taking AP: World you will be overwhelmed with the amount of history you need to know. AP psychology, I recommend the Princeton Review Book. I got a (5) on that exam with little to none effort. For the class it's like 1 hour of studying per weekend, and making flash cards to nail the vocab. It's a very easy self study, go for it!
