Should I Register for AP Exams Even Though I Don't Know the Material Yet?

I'm a high school junior with a question about AP tests. I am supposed to register for them in a few weeks and I have no idea how I'm going to do in these classes or if I should bother registering. There are three AP classes I haven't even started yet because our school has moved to block scheduling due to the pandemic. I start those classes in January, so how can I decide now if I should be registering for the tests if I don't know how I'll do on the material? Is there a criteria I should use when deciding which AP tests to take, like ones that have to do with my major, etc.? Do colleges care if I take the tests, or is doing well in the AP classes enough for them?
