Cornell AP Calculus Credit

<p>From what I know, AP Calculus AB isn't gonna get me any credits.</p>

<p>So, should I take the CASE exam for 1910 in the summer? Is it passable if I have taken Calculus AB and I study a bit over the summer? If so, what should I study? Also, does it cost anything?</p>

<p>Should I even exempt myself from 1910? How important is this class in terms of forming a strong foundation at Cornell? Do most engineering freshmen take it or not (b/c I know most high school seniors who got accepted into Cornell probably has taken Calculus BC)?</p>

<p>Thanks for any advice.</p>

<p>I do not want to steal this thread, so please answer the question above me first. But, if anyone can answer the following question as well, it will be very much appreciated: is chemistry credits the same for A&S and Engineering? I know in engineering, you get one semester for a 5 and nothing for a 4. Is this the same for Arts and Sciences?</p>

<p>Why can't you get credit for Calc AB?</p>

<p>1910 departmental exam is tough. You can always try, you have nothing to lose.</p>

<p>@arobins92 1910 is first of the calculus sequence in engineering. Calc AB does not cover enough material to justify credit.</p>

<p>Alright, so if you're not in engineering can you get credit for the AB and BC exams?</p>

<p>Anyone have insight to my chem question?</p>

<p>xs0itg0esx, yes, you need a 5.</p>

<p>The above website is like a "minimum" for receiving AP credit at Cornell. If the colleges have any specific rules, they are usually stricter. Chemistry needs a 5, and if will be a Pre-Med student, Med school probably will not take AP Chemistry credit.</p>

<p>2coll: Have you taken the 1910 departmental exam? If so, do you know what is covered on it (as in is it comparable to the AP Calc BC exam or are there more topics)?</p>

<p>I am still looking forward to any additional input to my questions.</p>

<p>really? damn. I want a 5 on chem anyway, but I sort of feel ripped-off studying this hard. </p>

<p>I assume I won't be able to take bio credits either if I am going pre-med?</p>

<p>AB is more than sufficient for 1110 credit. However I would start at the beginning for the engineering sequence. From what I've seen, you should take every advantage you can get.</p>

<p>@ldftalk 1910 departmental exam is modeled on finals from previous 1910 finals. There may be pdfs of previous finals floating around. Just google "Math 1910 Cornell". Some professors have previous finals on their own website. Go to Math Dept. website and track down instructors for 1910 and look at their websites. You might find a lot of nuggets. I would rate 1910 departmental final as a AP Calc BC ++.</p>

<p>I had a 5 in AP Calc BC. My 1910 was waived. 1920 was challenging for me. Finally, did okay.</p>

<p>I tried but failed to find any pdfs of previous finals anywhere. Can someone please provide an active link or allow me to see a copy?</p>
