Advanced Placement Calculus?

Question:Do people who take advanced placement classes in high school and pass the AP test have a disadvantage when they enter college courses that college freshman don't usually take (calculus III, for example). Shouldn't the test cover mostly the same material as the class.

one of my friends took calc III her first semester freshman year. If you are good at math (and did well in AP calc) then by all means go for it. She said that for the first two weeks you do a quick review and then delve into the material so it is not like its jumping into a dark pit.
Well, I am about ready to figure that out--I received credit for AP Calculus BC, so I am just about to go to the next level--Multivariable Calculus.
