Hello Everyone!

I am a Sophmore this year, and I picked my courses for next year. Which are as following ;
Physics HL
Computer Science HL
Math SL
Economics HL
English Lang. Lit SL
German Lang. Lit SL

I am debating on taking Math HL or not because this year my teacher is not so great, so I am shy of taking Math HL next year, but nevertheless, I want to pursue Math HL. Is it really hard, as many say, or can one do good in it?

Also, I want to prepare for Math SL if I take HL or SL, doesn't matter, and I went to Amazon to buy the book but there are several. Which is the right book, Oxford or Barrons?

Thanks in advance.

I’m doing math HL! I tell you it’s not difficult but you need to study math every day at least one hour! It’s a matter of exercising! If you exercise you succeed otherwise you end up getting all 2! I had a shitty teacher as you the last two years still I have 5 in math. If I were you I would firstly find out which subjects your future University accepts and which doesn’t and then you decide the course! Cheers

@sleptking Thanks a lot. @matte.marlets so with the right teacher a 7 is reachable? Because most Universities I want to go to require a 7 in Math H

take 4 hl's, and so you have some freedom. But don't drop math HL until the end of the first year
