When do you take Sat2Chem if you're in APChem?

<p>When do you take Sat2Chem if you're in APChem?</p>

<p>When's the best time to take it? after 1st semester? after 2nd semester?</p>

<p>Feel free to include all factors you can think of.</p>

<p>Depends what grade you're in - If you're a senior, you probably need to take it ASAP (unless you're taking it only for placement or credit, not for admissions). Otherwise, I would wait till the end of the course - the June testing. Whatever preparation you do in class for the AP exam will be a really good start to studying for the SAT II. Some people's Chem I class is enough for the SAT II but if you're already in AP, I would wait till the course was over (or nearing completion). Look at this thread for more info on the SAT II Chem - <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/showthread.php?t=2146%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/showthread.php?t=2146&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I took AP Chem junior year, then both the SAT II and AP exam in May (750 and 5).</p>

<p>i took it 2nd month of it
im a junior
i have an A- in chem AP (which is like an A+++++ in anyother class @ my school)
i got a 760
dint improve much really - 750 in chem honors
its cuz the test was hard (that somehow is a big factor on this test)
i have gotten scores from 690-800 within 2 week period</p>
