Any suggestions for AP?

Hi, I’m thinking about taking AP in spring. I’m in grade twelve and have a full course load at my day school. I also have clubs, DECA and Euclid. I’m definitely doing AP Cal BC and not sure if I can manage an extra psychology or even an computer science A as well. Have any of you taken AP before? How is the work load? And if you self studied your APs, can you please provide some tips or resources as well? Thank you!!

You can take as many or as few as you want. I know some kids that took 4-5 AP courses in gr. 12 and they managed, but it depends on your individual ability and work ethic. The courses are designed to be at the university-level so there is obviously a higher workload and higher expectations in terms of grading.
