European vs. World?

I'm self-studying AP US this year, and decided to take one (both?) of these tests as well to self study. Does anyone have any recommendations? Would all three be doable?

    lol don't do euro...no way you can self study it in such little time. even ap world is a stretch. but for sure NOT EURO

    I would say, depending on how much time you devote to it, Euro is a fairly easy exam. I took it as a sophomore last year and I self studied for it and I still got a 4. Get a princeton review book and take timed practice tests. The reason why I got a 4 was poor time management only filling out 58/80 of the multiple choice. If you can do APUSH, you can do Euro. I would suggest devoting two hours a weekday to the two exams, and maybe five on the weekend. Idk about taking all three tests, might be too much. But APUSH and APEH are not too difficult, you can do really well on both :)

    I think Euro is a tremendous amount of material , but cannot compare to World. My unofficial take is more colleges will give credit for Euro, though, than for World. I would double check that at colleges you are interested in.

    Oh, just a correction -- I meant I could not compare it to World because I didn't know not that I thought World had more info.
