Placing into EC 308 & 309
AP scores will be out in about 10 days.
Assuming DS gets 4's or better on AP Micro and Macro Economics, our plan was to have him place into both EC 308 and 309 and take them both in Spring semester.
After attending Bama Bound, some students and advisors suggested this may not be a good idea.
Their reasoning was as follows:
1) high school AP Econ is not as foundational as intro EC 110&111, so one might have an inadequate knowledge base going into EC 308&309 with AP credit alone.
2) taking EC 308 in Spring and then 309 in Fall 2016 would be more desirable than doing both together in spring. One advisor said that they were best taken in separate semesters with EC 308 1st and then later EC 309 (afraid we might fry our brains or something I guess, but I figured since much of the material would overlap, it might not be a big deal).
Now, I am not sure what to do.
To those out there who placed into EC 308 and 309 and did them together in one semester, would you recommend or not recommend it?
Would love to hear a few opinions on this! Thanks.
