My school has two weighted physics courses: Accelerated Physics (mechanics) and AP Physics C. Most people take Accel Physics their junior year, then take AP Physics C senior year along with Calculus AB or BC. I would have taken Accel Physics, but I took AP Chem instead. I'm currently enrolled in "Pre-Calculus with Limits" for Math and will be taking Calculus BC next year.
Here's the thing: people tell me AP Physics C is hard as hell if you don't take physics accel before it. So to ease the difficulty, I plan on self-studying a bit during winter, spring, and summer break using this website: The Physics Classroom Topics
Once I grasp the concepts, I'll contact the teachers for more resources.
So of the links, what do I need to know to cover the mechanics of AP Physics? What Calculus concepts would be helpful to know before hand? Any links to sites or books (nothing too thick) would be helpful. And has anyone else taken AP Physics C without a physics background?
