What is AP Chemistry Lab?

I was just wondering what exactly you do in AP Chemistry Lab. Is it a real class and do you do labs the whole time? Is it useful for college?

    AP Chem Lab is a required time, usually homeroom, that AP Chem students conduct labs in, at least at my school.

    Sorry you had to read that sentence. I need to sleep.

    AP Chem is a real class, labs are required, but there's no exam for any chem lab.

    It is useful for the AP exam. They ask about lab experiments sometimes.

    Lab experiments.
    Is it a real class
    Yes. How it's structured varies by school. My school had it is a double-period block every one or two weeks.
    Is it useful for college?
    As @bondangles said, it's useful for the AP Exam.
