Re: Why Your Kids Should Take AP Classes

I got out of having to take any math courses in college because of my Calc AP credit (and I only got a 3 on the test, I sucked at calc - but I got an A in the class because my teacher gave crazy participation points). Got credits for the 4 I got in AP Music, but as a music major it didn't easily count toward my major at all. I had to argue to get out of Remedial Theory, and that AP class had covered what amounted to THREE theory courses at my university. The California state university system sounds like they're very generous. Your daughter will at minimum get a GPA boost and probably has most of her core curric courses covered. Sweet.
