I go to a small school that doesn't offer any AP classes, but I'm really interested in science and was thinking of self-studying for AP Chemistry to take the exam. I know a lot of people say it's too hard or that I need to take the class, but since I'm taking my school's version of accelerated Chemistry, I thought it could be possible. Any advice? I was thinking of getting a textbook and taking it to class so I could ask for advice from my teacher. Do you think it's possible if I start early? I can start right now during the summer if that's what it takes.
