A.P. Government and Politics isn't an easy class to pass. Don't think you'll be able to do as little as possible and pass the big A.P. Test at the end of the year. You need to know that you'll have to work to pass and at the same time don't get stressed out because most people do pass the A.P. Exam. You might dread taking the class but after you finish you'll be glad you took it. The amount of knowledge you'll retain is amazing and that alone makes it worth it. The class will also toughen you up for any other class you can take.
