Should I self-study for AP Bio or take an online class?

Self-studying would be less stressful... but I might end up learning more with the online course.

    i could never understand why people would take online classes. you should self-study only if you have already taken a biology course

    You'll get an increased weighted GPA and higher class standing if you take it online. Also, the studying will be done for you as you go through the course. I say take it online.

    ^ That really depends upon the high school. Not all high schools will count courses taken outside it towards the GPA or class standing. Some might only be willing to document it on the transcript. Korg, before assuming that the course will or will not count, find out your high school's policies.
