(I'll preface this with: I know there are many posts on this, but I have some unique and specific questions, so please take the time to answer.)
I'm planning on self-studying AP Econ this year (def Macro and possibly Micro also). I'm a sophomore and my school barely offers any APs, so this would be my first AP exam. I would like to get a 5 one the exam, which I don't know if that's really possible for self-studying.
I'm interested in going into business, so I do have interest in the subject area.
So, here are my questions:
a. I would like to really learn the content well- I'm going to buy a textbook. I'm thinking the Krugman-Wells series, but which? Economics? Essentials of Economics? Macroeconomics? (Microeconomics if I do micro also?)
b. Would you recommend this series?
c. Are there any online resources (notes, outlines, quizzes, powerpoints, etc) for this series?
d. How much time should I devote to study each day?
e. Should I read every chapter in the text? If not, which?
f. If I choose to do macro and micro, should I study them at the same time? Which first if not? Do I use separate text books?
