"Top requests for potential new AP courses? #1 Anatomy & Physiology; #2 College Algebra; #3 Engineering"
I think it could be beneficial to have an AP course outline and exam for this material.  Especially given the joint NCTM/MAA statement in April: 

"Although calculus can play an important role in secondary school, the
ultimate goal of the K?12 mathematics curriculum should not be to get
students into and through a course in calculus by twelfth grade but to
have established the mathematical foundation that will enable students
to pursue whatever course of study interests them when they get to
college."

I wonder how many universities would give credit for College Algebra?

Anyone know whose requests he is tabulating?

Any thoughts pro or con?
