by JULIE E. GREENE | October 13, 2003 A year ago, Bonnie Dowell studied Advanced Placement calculus at Boonsboro High School, but she chose not to take the exam that would have allowed her to earn college credit. Dowell, 17, of the Sharpsburg area, took the course in the fall and the exam isn't given until May, so she was concerned how much she would remember. This fall, the senior is taking courses in Advanced Placement statistics, psychology and English. She will prepare to take the exams in the spring by attending review sessions during the spring semester to refresh her memory.
