    It's an AP class, so it's definitely not a walk in the park. And if you're not a math person(like me), then that will make it more challenging. However, if you have a decent teacher, you should make it. It's one of those classes that shouldn't be a nightmare unless you have a crappy teacher. I wasn't blessed with having a good teacher for stats, so I didn't do that great in the class. The AP exam is Easier than the class, so I still feel like I got a 3 or maybe just barely a 4.

    Have you taken AP Calculus AB or BC? If you have, AP Statistics should be a relatively easy class in comparison, at least for me. I would say it's more logic based and less intangible than calculus and there it is definitely easier to connect real world examples. Actually, some of the basic concepts are learned in Algebra 1 and 2.
