Register for AP Exams

Have I mentioned that you can register for AP Exams online?  Well, actually you must.  You will get lots of utils when you pass the micro exam and even more when you pass the macro exam and even more when you get to college and realize you don’t have to take econ again.  Then you realize you’re a finance or accounting or econ major and you still have to take more (Curse you Thompson!) but at least you’ll be off to a good start and have some of them out of the way.

Register for your AP Exams here. This must be done by February 28th. All students should sign up for the AP Microeconomics Exam. If you are willing, I also encourage you to sign up for the AP Macroeconomics exam.
