Is AP Stat worth taking?

<p>I'm trying to decide what to classes to take next year (senior year). I'm planning on taking 5 AP's. But I was wondering if I should take AP Stat or not. Does anyone who has already taken or is currently taking AP Stat think it is an important class to take?</p>

<p>AP Stat is a great class. I'm also taking 5 AP's next year, and from what I hear the AP test isn't that hard either. (AP Calc BC, AP Physics C, AP Stat, AP Spanish Literature, AP English Language)</p>

<p>I am taking AP Stats right now and I find it to be useful if you plan to go into Social Sciences. If you plan to go into engineering or something similar, take AP Calc AB or BC. </p>

<p>I'd also like to note that AP Stats started out pretty easy but then got difficult really fast for the majority of my class.</p>

<p>Its the biggest waste of time class i've ever seen. its extremely slack, but so slack that its annoying and boring.</p>

<p>I plan on pursuing a career in medicine. Do you guys think it would
be beneficial for someone wanting to be a doctor?</p>

<p>it wouldnt be beneficial for anybody... its an extremely basic overview of the topic. if your interested in the subject take it in college because you will not learn very much in the class.</p>

<p>i love stat! it is really beneficial for anyone who wants to go into and many other is really interesting!</p>

<p>Considering that you're going into medicine, both Cal and stats would help.</p>

<p>If you want an easier class (I''ve heard), Stats is easier.</p>

<p>Calculus did bring down my 1st semester Senior year GPA; however, it did not affect my rank.</p>

<p>I'm taking AP Calculus BC and AP Stats this year and it's really not that bad. AP Stats is a pretty easy class if you remember your formulas or know how to use your calculator. Calc BC on the other hand....isn't so easy.</p>

<p>Someguy1337, I've heard Cal BC is hard, but I also consider Cal AB to be hard, also.</p>

<p>Calculus is definitely not like Trig, Alg 2, etc.</p>

<p>To the original poster, tothetop, I think you should take AP Stats. The class sounds interesting and as I said, I heard that it is easy.</p>
