Which course did you prefer and why? How long did you take the course before taking the exam? And how was the exam? I would like to know as much information on these courses before I register for one online. Thanks :)

    I took macro first micro second. I got 5s on both. Macro was an easier class harder test. Micro was a harder class easier test. If you have common sense, can do basic artithmetic, and remember key graphs you'll ace the exam. Honestly you can skip the class and read a review book and that should be plenty of prep lol

    Thank you so much for your advice! Which course do you think i can take online in the shortest amount of time (in months) because I believe the exam is in May and i want to have enough time to finish the course and be prepared?

    I am in AP Macro in APEX (an online learning software) and I have breezed through the course. I am on track to finish it within the next two weeks, which would mean I finished it in less than 3/8ths of a semester. Also, you should totally do AP Macro! Macro should be a required course for high school graduation, because it makes such a huge difference on how we choose in national level elections, whereas Micro is more applicable to a much smaller scale. But that's just my bias, and everyone enjoys their own cup of tea.
