    Wuet AP Grades!!!

    4'd Comp Sci
    3'd Physics

    Should've studied more but I'm still really happy right now. I did absolutely nothing for the second semester of both classes and was able to pass both tests.

    Damn I don't know how some people don't do anything and still pass the tests including final exam.

    Do you guys pay attention in class? I must be in bottom percentile in terms of average brain power then.

    First semester I worked hard in both classes. But as you guys know, I got addicted to WoW the second semester. If you've ever played WoW (or Everquest), you'd know what my life became like. Studied pretty hard the last couple of weeks.

    I have no idea what these grades "4'd" and "3'd" mean. You still should have studied more

    What undergrad courses does the CompSci AP exam exempt you from?

    At my university it would exempt you from COMP 1010 and most likely COMP 1020 also. I had never taken any computer science courses until university where I was forced to because I'm a math major. It's actually pretty interesting stuff.

    But yeah, I would take the courses anyways, because you'll most likely ace them and that'll give you a nice start to your cumulative GPA.

    Are those language-specific?

    My confusion lies with the fact that back when I was in undergrad, our CS classes were Intro C++, Advanced C++, Java, COBOL, assembly, etc.


    I'm sure the curriculum has changed for most schools, I'm just curious as to what the 1000 level classes are.

    I have no idea about being exempt from courses, but it was the Comp Sci AB (the harder of AB and A) exam so does that make it worth anything more?

    And if I'm not exempt from any courses I don't really care. It was a great experience and I learned a lot. I plan to study some C++ soon (the Comp Sci exam was in Java) and being that I already have the concepts down I'll just need to learn some new syntax.

    Btw Bruise, the grades you can score on AP Exam are 1,2,3,4,5.

    1 = You probably took the wrong test lol.
    2 = Didn't pass.
    3 = Passed
    4 = Better.
    5 = Best.

    Haha. Well I probably will major in some type of Engineering. Not sure which yet. Probably both hardware and software Computer Engineering, so I plan not to forget what I learned in Comp Sci.

    As far as 1000 level courses go for Computer Science at my school, I think only COMP 1010 is language-specific (Java). My instructor told us that when he did his undergraduate degree the courses were all language specific, and the first language they started off with was C++. That wasn't too long ago, since he's now a PhD student in his 20's, so I guess they must have completely changed the curriculum here in recent years.

    good work, if i knew what was up i would have taken so many more AP classes than i did, free credits, you could probably get a years worth of credits from AP classes if you took enough

    Makes sense. As my younger siblings have gone through Georgia Tech, I know they're now no longer language specific - they just try to teach concepts, i.e. OOP, etc regardless of language.

    Teaching Intro Java in someone's junior year after (as my undergrad program was doing just 5 years ago) they had three C++ classes was a little ridiculous.

    I'm torn on AP exams, I did pretty well on them but you have to remember that your knowledge of the subject will be the basis for your undergrad degree (assuming you're majoring in the field) so you'll still want to make very sure that you know your stuff.
    If you go to a big university, I'm not sure that you'd even WANT to skip some of the entry-level classes... you'll end up jumping right into the more difficult classes when, to be honest, your free time might be more useful (socializing/networking, *cough* picking up on freshman girls *cough*). Also, as was said before, taking basic classes can raise your cumulative GPA which has its benefits (financial aid/scholarships, and GPA for professional school).
    Of course skipping classes can save money if it works into your schedule correctly.
    No reason not to study for them and take them as long as you're not neglecting your high school social life...

    BTW you NEED to BURN those WoW and EQ CDs. EQ sucked away a year or two of my prime teenage years and I wish I could punch the developers in the face not just for me but for all of the other people out there neglecting their social life due to some game like that.

    You bring up some good points.. heh, or you could do what I did and come in with AP credits and just take 12 credits a semester and still be on track to graduate on time. That way, you get to have a fun 4 years (full of picking up chicks and drinking) and not worry as much about classes.

    I only took one AP class, English, and got a 4 on the exam. A 3 is usually not accepted for credit by colleges, though. Congrants on passing.
