AP Test Advice and Tips


Hayat Brahmer, Student Life Editor

The dreaded time of year has come; AP test week(s). AP testing begins Monday, May 1st, and will end May 12th. It is important to sign up and study for these exams because you can gain college credit if you reach the credentials. Here are some tips on how to study for these tests. SPREAD IT OUT. Obviously, the earlier you start studying the better, but as a procrastinator myself, I know this is easier said than done. However, even spreading out your studying for two weeks before the test, you will feel and do much better. Studying the night before is not an option with these exams. Another tip is to go in and ask your teachers questions. Ask them what they think you should focus on, any questions you have on topics, and ask them for practice tests/questions. Many if not all the teachers for these classes have been through this time of year many times and are happy to help you do the best you can. A good free resource you can use for studying/reviewing is Kahn Academy. They offer many different courses in great detail. Good luck Spartans!
