Does anybody know whose idea it was to make two AP Calculus exams and name them AB and BC? Why not just name them A and B? At Hofstra University, a 3 on the AB exam gives you credit for Basic Calculus, which is for nonmajors and meets for fewer hours than Analytic Geometry and Calculus I. A student with credit for Basic Calculus who needs Analytic Geometry and Calculus II must take the 1 credit course Bridge to Calculus II. A 4 or 5 on the AB exam or a 3 on the BC exam gives you credit for Analytic Geometry and Calculus I. A 4 or 5 on the BC exam gives you credit for Analytic Geometry and Calculus I and Analytic Geometry and Calculus II.
