and whether or not to skip this.
So I'm taking Computer Science this year. We're starting off with C++ for the first half of the year, then moving on to Java for the second half of the year. There's another AP class that does Java all year. I'm really liking the C++ class, but I'm way
ahead of everyone else.
As in, I'm 6 labs past what everyone is doing at the moment. To help you get a picture of this, a lab is supposed to take two class periods of one hour. We've been in school two weeks.
Here's my question. Should I skip this C++ and get bumped up to the AP course, or should I stay with it and learn C++ for at least half a year? This is the first language I've taken, but I've got a good grasp on it already. One of my friends just started CS this year and skipped the regular class for AP, so I know it can be done. Then again, I'm leery about skipping C++, as it's a major language used in a lot of software today, no? I mean, I can always go back and take another course on it in college...
Meh, what're your suggestions?
