I am taking four AP classes at school, but I want to take at least about 6 tests...I want to self study AP statistics and AP computer science. My questions are:
1. The colleges I REALLY REALLY want to go to don't give much or any AP credit. So the only reason I want to self study them would be my own interest and for purposes of getting in...Does it look okay to self-study APs, so long as you get get scores? Do colleges like that? Do they care? :-)
2. Is it difficult to self-study AP statistics? Do I need to get a textbook as well as a test-prep book? How long should it take (should I study it all year or just part of a semester, etc.)?
3. I only have some computer programming experience, and hardly any object-oriented, and no Java or C++, really...but programming never seemed too terribly difficult...would it be too difficult to self study for AP computer science? What books would anyone suggest?
Are there any other APs that are notoriously good for self-studying that would improve my chances of getting into a good college?
