AP calc tests: AB vs. BC

So, I am currently in an AP calc AB class in High School. I'm a Junior. So far, we are according to my teacher almost done with everything that will be covered on the AB test (both classes use the same textbook and currently we are finishing chapter 7 of 10).

Re: Secretary: Part 3

Is it just me, or does this comic contain too many indirect references to Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long blog to be pure coincidence (i.e. sheeple, followed almost directly by 'death ray'), while each on its own would not be a reference to it, together, it (at least for me) was hard to miss.

Re: Awesome Student Quotes

I was at a table with three not-so-intelligent people in an SAT prep course my mom had signed me up for, and one day, the word terracotta came up in an essay on a practice test. they proceeded to spend the class debating what it meant. One of them was sure it was a type of wood , one thought it was ...
