What's more interesting AP euro or AP US or AP Econ or AP Comp. Gov?

Like what's the workload spectrum and interest spectrum?

    Euro's a lot of work, so is U.S. I can't speak for others.

    Interest depends on you. Personally, I find Euro fascinating, and U.S. not as fun as Euro.

    Most interesting is completely personal. From a workload perspective, APUSH=AP Euro. The other two would be several steps below, but it will vary based upon the teacher.

    AP Euro and APUSH are considered "core" AP classes. Their interest depends on you. Note that some students take both during the course of their high school career.
    AP Econ and AP Gov are considered complementary, not "core".

    See at my school, APUSH and AP Gov are core classes, and AP Euro and AP Econ are electives. I think it depends on the school. Many places consider AP Gov a core class, including my entire county.

    I'm talking from the point of view of college admissions.
    AP Gov can be considered "core" wrt high school graduation requirements in states where .5 credit in US Gov is required for graduation.
    However for colleges it's not considered "core" by selective colleges.
