Long story short, dunno which AP I should choose between.
Note that here, Econ is a one semester course. We take Econ first semester then switch to Government second semester. You can only choose one class to be AP and then the other is left to be a normal, non AP course. After AP Econ we take both the AP Macro and AP Micro exam.
I don't know what the hell I'm going to be in the future, nor what college I want to go.
Hm. About Econ: I LIKE the subject. It's complicated enough to keep me interested but easy enough for me to pick up really quickly. Also the teacher (who I have now for APUSH) is very good. The way he teaches works very well for me, and I'm glad. Teachers make a huge impact on my learning. I'm like 300% more motivated to do well just because I like the teacher. So... yeah. Econ's worth 4 times more college credit than CS and I only have to take it for half a year. Obviously, the workload is going to be heavy. But in second semester I get to take normal government so that means I'll get a break later on. Aaaand I'll be walking in with no knowledge of the course?? So Econ will be hard but I will love every second of it.
Aaaand on the other hand there's CS. Um. I like programming too. The teacher is.... okay. She prints out worksheets from online and makes her students do them. Easy A for the class. Uh I don't have any experience in Java (in CS you learn to code in Java) but it can't be that hard, right? I looked over some past AP exams and it doesn't look that bad. And I KNOW I'm going to be hounded for this but I'm pretty damn fluent in HTML/CSS and while it's not the same as Java, it means this won't be the first time I'm looking at code and debugging and all that. So CS should be less of a challenge for me than Econ will be butttt at the expense of a crappier teacher and less college credit.
SO WHICH DO I CHOOSE
also if you ask "why not both?" there's a limit to the amount of AP classes you can take so yeah
