    Is anyone else having trouble accessing the site to take the Spanish placement exam?

    Also,

    How does my performance on this test help them decide what language I will study at USAFA? If I do well, does that mean that I will more likely be studying a harder language like Arabic or Chinese or does that mean they would rather have me continue with Spanish?

    Thank you for your insight

    Same ^^

    I completed the Data Collection forms but have yet to complete the Spanish Placement Exam. I can't open it.

    The link under the data collection surveys does not work. You will have to type in the address that is in the Instructions to Appointees booklet.

    Yes, AP calc BC goes through calc 2 at the Academy. If you remember it well you can validate those two classes by taking the test during basic.

    thank you, i think i will opt to try and be placed in calc 2 and see if i test into it. i found the second semester of BC to be much more challenging than my first and was having a little trouble with sequences and series so it think i will find it not as hard the second time around
