??? Liberal arts kid taking the AP physics exam

If you are a liberal arts kid takign the AP physics exam, it would actually be better to take the Physics B test rather than the two Physics C tests, right?

Because you would get 15 general physics credits for Physics B but only 10 credits (engineering physics credits) for both Physics C tests.

Is that right - I am understanding this right?

Thanks!

Here's the policy from the UW AP Web site:
Physics B - AP test score of 4 or 5
PHYS 114/117, 115/118, 116/119 (15 cr.) First-year general physics sequence. Also satisfies Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning graduation requirement.

Physics C: AP Mechanics score of 4,5 PHYS 121 (5 cr.) First quarter of engineering physics sequence. Also satisfies Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning graduation requirement.
Physics C: AP Electricity & Magnetism score of 4,5 PHYS 122 (5 cr.) Second quarter of engineering physics sequence. Also satisfies Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning graduation requirement.
