Using AP Credit for Social Science Courses?

<p>From what I've read on CC, it's a pretty bad idea to use AP credit in order to get out of mathematics and the sciences. It's better to not use the credit and simply take the courses and get A's.</p>

<p>However, can I use AP United States History, AP European History, AP World History, AP U.S. Government, AP Comp Government, etc. credit? Wouldn't it be better to take 4 math and science courses during college rather than 5 with an introductory history course?</p>
