To help you out, here are 5 useful tips to help you study for your AP tests!
While AP study books are a nice supplemental resource, don’t rely on it completely for knowledge. These books are great for helping you condense the information you absolutely need to know, while also offering practice exams so you know where you stand before the actual test.
2) Spread Yourself Out
Cramming is never a good idea so while you’re still ahead, create a plan where you can review your material over a length of time. Think about what score you are aiming for and study accordingly. This will give you a chance to deal with topics you are having difficulties with.
3) Meet with Your Teacher
A lot of teachers offer remediation for AP exams. Whether it be during the mornings or in the afternoon, test review with your teacher is definitely a must. Your teacher can offer you valuable insight and tips on how to study your material and help you get the score you want.
4) Complete Classwork and Readings
If you’ve fallen behind in readings or class work it is important that you catch up as much as you can before your AP exams. AP exams are different from other exams since the questions are application based rather than just straight-up knowledge. You need to have a good understanding of the material and have a couple of examples up your sleeves for those free response questions.
5) Review ALL of Your Notes, Quizzes, and Tests
Everything you did in class is important. Be sure to give them a good look over while you prepare! Don’t underestimate the test. It’s better to be overly prepared than unprepared!
Work hard until your test date and relax afterwards. Don’t think about that exam until July. Good luck!
