Recommendation of AP classes
Link
5 months ago
Really depends on what you are interested in and good at. AP classes are very intense and if you don't like the subject it is difficult to succeed. It would be a waste of your time trying to take the class that you have no interest in and if you haven't done well in a regular class taking AP also makes no sense.

Well, what are you passionate about? If you're interested in Computer Science, take AP Computer Science Principles. If you're interested in history, take one of the AP History courses, like European History, US HIstory, or World History. If you love in-depth literary analysis and intend to work on your writing (especially if you're pursuing a major in English), perhaps AP Language or AP Literature would be for you down the road. Like science? AP Biology or AP Chemistry! At the end of the day, it boils down to what your school has to offer, and what you can offer for your school. Don't be afraid to try something new, but just keep in mind that you don't want to waste time taking a course you don't like.

You need to provide more information on your interests and current classes (especially math). AP classes are rigorous and difficult if you don’t have an interest or developed skills in the subject.

do you need to take ap cal/ab before you take ap cal/bc?
Link

Check and see if your school offers two separate AB and BC classes. If it does, then depending on how strong your math skills are, you could go straight to BC.
RoundPier this is not correct. My school offers AB and BC, and I went straight to BC as a sophomore, as have many others

Michael - it would mean your BC is probably a double credit course (10 credits in certain schools) or you fulfilled prerequisites for BC by taking other classes. It really depends on the school but in most schools you would have to take AB first.
where can study biology online?

njctl.org/ has some good materials and should have Bio and AP Bio but not the online class. You can also check edX

Try Bozeman Science! It's very much like Khan Academy in that they are filled with a wealth of short videos taught by same person. In my opinion, Bozeman was way more simplistic and to the point than Khan Academy (especially for AP Biology stuff). It's made by a nationally recognized high school science teacher from Bozeman, Montana. The channel's on youtube. Also some of the CrashCourse videos can nicely supplement (also on Youtube).
can i skip algebra 1?

You have to discuss this with your teachers but it is very difficult to skip a class
Yes. I skipped Algebra 1 and 2 and did fine. My brother has skipped Algebra 1, 2 and Precalc. You'll be fine, all my friends have skipped at least 1 year.

Ask the teacher to take the End of Course exam. If you pass with above a C, then yeah probably.
biology, chemistry, physics

1. Physics
2. Chemistry
3. Biology

Although biology is probably the easiest but many things are much better understood once you know physics especially chemistry!

Agree with above but all depends on your personal interests and preparation
do u need to take algebra if you plan to take ap cal?
Link
As a Calculus teacher I am aware that each school has its own prerequisites for taking AP Calc. What is the sequence of math courses in your school?
1 year ago
Yes you do need to take algebra before calc
