ohh and btw, i would take honors if you are passing with like a C+ or a B in the class that you are in and just try alittle harder, plus, you are surrounded (no offence) by smart people that can help you out with you out with your homework. Then all those higher level classes are wieghted, so if you have a 3.5 GPA for example, with wieghted classes you may have a 3.7, or maybe a 3.8! It's also a good way to challenge yourself. plus it looks even better on a resume :)

Nah im too stupid for AP and honors... I like regents. Its fun :p
 
S7R1K3R, i have some info for you. As for myself, I had been making straight A's all through my school life. I am a 10th grader this year and decided to take AP World History. At the beginning, everyone was petrified becasue of the amount and difficulty of the work, however a little past midway through the year, we are feeling much more comfortable. If you plan to take AP and Honors classes, you CANNOT make lower than a C, that would defeat the puropse and if colleges see that low of a grade, they will put your name at the bottom of the stack. PM me if I can be of any more help.
oh, and what state do you live in?

AP Classes are easy long as you pay attention..... Just do your thing, and cut down on DOD a bit. I only play about 30 min to hour a week. And Couple hours on Sat and Sunday. Remeber, study, read the subject's book when you take crap, or when ur doing anything. It will help.
 
well the only thing i can say is ease yourself into the workload. if you're going to take all ap classes (minus gym) like i did in senior year, make sure to have enough equivalent level classes in junior year so you know what to expect and you don't get overwhelmed. with that said, the amount of work i got in senior year made life stressful... at least for the first semester.

Trust me, first semesters always hard, because teachers want you to drop out, but 2nd semester, its soooo much easier.
