Should I take independent study AP Gov?

<p>Government and politics really interest me and I really want to take AP Gov, but the problem is that it's an independent study class. It's going to be a lot of extra work, and I don't know if I should do it because it's my junior year, which is already a stressful year. Also, this would be my 5th AP (Note: My school only starts offering AP classes Junior Year) and I really wanna build up the amount of APs I take.. So, what should I do?</p>

<p>If you really enjoy government it shouldn’t be too bad. It’s not as much of a burden when you’re interested in something.</p>

<p>Also, I will probably have to take it during my lunch or a study period that my school has for everyone. My schedule will already be AP English, AP Calculus, AP Physics, APUSH, Leadership Honors (Required for Peer Leaders), and then another elective. I was planning on making my elective an art class to fill a requirement or possibly doing AP Macro Economics.</p>
