Independent study for AP exams?

<p>Has anybody prepared for an AP exam by themself? (like with a Princeton Review book or whatever)?</p>

<p>There are 2 AP's I'd like to take but my school doesn't offer (English Language and Macro/micro economics). </p>

<p>Has anybody done this? was it hard? Did you feel that the book prepared you for it?</p>

<p>And, does an independent study for an AP exam that you score well on hold any weight in college admissions? Do they like to see that, or are they more concerned with the actual class?</p>

<p>And also, if you've taken them, which of the economics exams is easier? Could you take both from studying by yourself?</p>
