Will taking course at different college count on AMCAS?

I go to NYU and I want to take a summer course (Calculus II) at CUNY Baruch. This is a pretty reputable school (not community college) and I am only taking it there because of costs ($250/credit vs. NYU's murderous $964/credit).

Will AMCAS count this course taken at another school the same way they would count it at my current school?

Yes, it will count. However, adcoms may believe that you have a motive other than cost avings; many applicants do this to avoid takign a "weed out" class at their own school. Calculus II isn't required for med school so this might be more acceptable than taking organic chem or physics at another school (particularly if the admission standards for that school are lower than your home institution).
