AP World Hist=SAT II World Hist?

I got a 760 on the SAT II world History test. Is this score indicative of a probable 4 or 5 on the AP test? I haven't taken a world history class since sophmore year but I'm highly interested. Also, I'm very good at geography and the like, is Human Geography relatively feasible?

    High SAT II's are more indicative of possible high AP scores than vice versa (Think about it, there are only 5 possible scores for AP but like 30 for SAT II. If you're at the top of a 30 level pyramid, chances are you're gonna end up on top of a 5 level one). Human geography is one of the easiest self study AP's. If you're asking if you can self study it, then yes, you can very easily.

    is taking the SAT2 even like any good? ive heard colleges ask for chem, bio, math Sat II's.....so Us hist one seems kind of not worth it.

    what if a person does bad on a Sat II. I heard that when you send Sat II's to colleges, colleges see all of them and not just the ones that you want them to see. Is there any way one cancel the scores if they are bad ( below 600).

    yeah i definitely thought the sat ii world history was harder than the ap as far as multiple choice goes. i got a 5 on the ap and got a 770 on the sat ii after taking it two years later.
