Maybe I should post this on the c++ board, but oh well. Has anyone here taken the A or AB AP CS exam. If so what did you think, was it hard/easy. I have the test coming up in a month and just wanted to hear some peoples impressions of it.

I took the A test last year, and got a 3, but basically just cause I had to study on my own because my school didn't offer an ap class for that, and I also had 3 other ap tests to study for too.

I took the easier one last year... and thought it was extremely easy. I may have got one question wrong about some sorting routine that I hadn't seen up to the point of the test, but other than that, it was a breeze, even the open ended question about the case study didn't require that much knowledge of the case study itself.

I'm taking APCS this year and the practice tests are simple as hell. My cousin took it a few years back and said that it was the easiest AP she ever took (and she took a ton). If you have a good understanding of C++, you should be fine.

I took it last year...One eassy was really hard, the case study was annoying because I misread teh question, but it wasn't that bad it you had studied it a lot otherwise, and everything else was a cake walk.

Thanks to everyone who responded. My friend who had taken it a few years ago said it was easy, but i figured it couldnt hurt to get a few more peoples opinions.
