[ap-calculus] Differentials

If memory serves me correctly, differentials are no longer on the AP
exam, AB or BC. I think it used to be part of the AB curriculum.

If this is true, I find it curious that Euler's Method is part of BC
in that it involves a knowledge of the meaning of dx, delta x, and dy.

Am I wrong in assuming that knowledge of differentials is not part of
any AP exam?
