Summer Courses

Hello!

This summer I will be a rising senior and I'm planning on taking an AP course throughout the duration of this summer. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me a sense of direction as I'm torn. First, I'm wondering if I should take US GOV & POL AP even if I've already taken civics. Second, there are 5 courses, including US GOV, I want to take but again, I'm unsure which I should take since my school doesn't offer any of them. Third, say I were to take Micro or Macro, is there a distinction between the two, or say one being more sustaining than the other?

If anyone has different thoughts, questions, or suggestions, please let me know! Thank you :)!

Also, as far as future plans, I'm still unsure what I'd apply for when going to college.

I've taken human geo as a freshmen, and I can say that it would be a pretty easy class for people who've taken ap world or ap us history or ap gov or any other social studies APs, because the content overlaps A LOT. After taking these classes, AP HUG would feel like a summary and common sense, so I wouldn't recommend taking this class. It would a waste of time for you unless you're just looking for a GPA boost from an easy class. Otherwise I would recommend one of the economics classes or any other courses that align with your career aspirations.

I have never taken Human Geo but I took both Micro and Macro and I can say Macro is significantly easier but Human Geo is probably less stress for summertime if you don't want to stress out or worry over the content. I've heard APES is not very difficult either.

AP Human Geo is a very manageable course that should be minimal stress-perfect for the summer! If you’re worrying about receiving credit though, I think not that many colleges have a conversion to receive credit for it. If it’s to show academic rigor, then it should be fine. Not too sure about the difficulty of the other courses
