I'm taking AP Lit and AP Environmental next year and I'm considering taking AP CSP also. However, I'm not sure if I'm putting too much on my plate; I'm only used to 1 AP class for the entire school year, and I'll also be in other challenging non-AP classes and working as a staff member on the school newspaper (college app season will also be a big stressor too). But I also think that CSP is a useful AP and I've heard it's relatively easy. Does anyone who's taken it before have any two sense/advice on the class? Should I take it or am I biting off more than I can chew?

I took AP CSP last year and it was super easy. Granted, I took CS classes before that, so if this is your first one then it might be hard just because all the stuff is brand new. If you want to see what kinds of content the class will go over, take a look at the course on Khan academy, the questions there were very similar to what comes up on the test. Hope this helped!

AP environmental is so easy so adding another AP won't be too much on top of the two you have.

the class is super easy. most of it isn't hard coding but just the basics of how to think how computers think.
