    There was already a thread posted on this. With a very similar subject line too. Try searching for it.

    How is AP calculus one of the easiest?
  • sentient89sentient89 Registered User Posts: 504 Member
    Calc is pretty freakin easy at our school too, precalc is supposedly the hard one :-/, maybe the teachers at our school do a good job in precalc to prep for calc ^^.

    I've heard AP Euro is supposed to be the hardest school in our building, but now that I'm in it, it feels pretty easy :-/. Btw, AP Psych is def. the easiest class on the face of the earth.

    My school AP Bio and AP Physics are by far the hardest, just because of the insane workload they give us (I'd say Average for AP Bio was 2.5hours/day of HW, Average for AP Physics was 2 hours/day)

    Medium APs I'd say AP Calc AB//BC, AP Art history, AP Euro, AP US

    Easiest AP Stat by farrrrr, AP English is also pretty easy

    (I'm only judging ones I've taken)
  • sentient89sentient89 Registered User Posts: 504 Member
    Yeah, I've heard that AP Bio is pretty hard too. I'm taking it at the moment, the work load is comparable to that of AP euro IMO :-/. I feel there is quite a bit more emphasis on memorization though, oddly.

    hardest: physics, chem, ECONOMICS!!
    high medium: calculus, english literature, latin
    low medium: us history, biology
    easiest: us government, statistics, english language

    in my school, there are more APS but ive taken nearly all of those.

    Rankings really are useless. How can you compare literature versus physics? I would just go to their respective websites and evaluate them individually. I, a strong math/science student with Asperger's SYndrome, would find AP Physics C to be MUCH EASIER than AP French Literature, for example.

    no dis is how it really goes
    Hardest:Chem, Physics, Government and EConomics, Latin, for ssure, and Bio..definitely..tons of things to memorize the questions are far more difficult than honors bio.
    medium-Us History, Euro, Calculus, Studio Art..i duno my friend told me this
    easiest-stats, art history, computer science, english,

    Ap Physics C (not bad), AP Calc BC (ok), AP English


    AP Stats (easiest crap ever, took it as a sophomore rape!)
    AP American (easy)

  • VashTheStampedeVashTheStampede Registered User Posts: 86 Junior Member
    ap physics C was by far the easiest AP i've taken. I had to actually do some work, but it was an easy 5.
  • platinumtlcplatinumtlc Registered User Posts: 304 Member
    for me,
    1. AP Bio is hardest
    2. AP Lit is easiest.
  • goalie1258goalie1258 Registered User Posts: 89 Junior Member
    ap physics has this stigma surrounding it at my school for having the highest fail rate in the school, but that's only because the teacher doesn't spoon-feed the material to you. in reality it's not that bad, probably the most useful AP I've encountered
