AP courses are only as good as the teachers who teach them. Additionally those who have successful pass rates for the AP tests are teaching to the test. It is just not the same as a college level class taught by a Ph. D. , however I realize not all students will be going to a college where introductory level classes are taught by Ph.D.'s.
If you have quality Ph.D. instructors teaching AP classes that's great, but not all schools provide that level of quality for their AP & Dual credit classes.
I agree but the general rule of thumb we have been given is if the course is integral to your major you shouldn't accept credit for it and should repeat it in university.
