my ap us teacher is crappy crappy crappy. his grading is totally unrational (grading papers that is). i'm not just stating this cause i got a bad grade or whatnot, i can present you with evidence if you truly wish. anyway i dont feel like spending everyday of the year stressing out over the grades he will give on papers (which are the majority of the grades in that class).
So what I was going to do is drop the class but still take the ap test (lets say i will do well on it). will colleges find it impressive that you took an H class and took the ap test and got a 5 on it? or will they look down upon the fact that you dropped the ap class?
what's your advice?

is it reported that you dropped the class? that'll make a differnence

no it is not. and if it was reported would it make that much of a difference if you lets say got a 5 on the ap test?

don't be an idiot. drop the class, you won't get a 5. it's as simple as that. you'll be so unprepared for the test it's not even funny, and i doubt your honors class will cover the same topics and to the same degree
my advice: DEAL WITH IT.

I don't know what youre talking about, at my high school my calculus class covered much more than the AP calc did, and we knew a heck of a lot more about calc than they did. im 100% positive i would have done just as good if not better on the ap test than them if i would of taken it.
we had a girl who was failing our class, dropped out of it, and went into ap calc and got an a, because it was that much easier.

there is kind of a difference between mathematics and history. and you didn't actually take the test either, so you can't say that. or your AP Calc teacher was just inept, because AP should almost always cover more content than a non-AP class.

History is easy. What are you all going on about. If you use a prep book to its fullest, are competent in writing essays for APUSH, and read the Newman Schlambach book, you'll get a 5 for sure. ITS NOT THAT HARD. Most AP's are like that. With enough motivation and a good prep book, any grade is possible. Maybe YOU couldn't get a 5 unless you were in the class, but that isn't the case for a lot of people.
