It's more the teacher than the class, I think. She's a cool person, but she is forgetful, unbelievably strict, loud, and harsh. Everyone I know who is in the class (Which is a lot of people) says it's one of the hardest classes they've ever taken, and honestly I've lost a considerable amount of faith in my ability to pick up any programming again after just about a year or so not having done any- Java simply doesn't want to compile on my computer whenever I try. It HAS to be a problem with the way I'm doing stuff, but I can't see what I'm doing wrong.
My schedule's already set this year considering this is second semester. There isn't too much point to take AP classes Senior year, is there? Don't colleges mostly look at your 11th grade?
Besides that, I'm likely going to community college for a couple years and then transferring to a university. With my family's financial situation I'll get in hells of easy and SMC is like, THE transfer CC in the state if I'm correct.
