5 AP Study Tips to Get Through AP Exams [Video]

Get ready for your AP Exams with these 5 AP Study tips!

Rank your AP exams by difficulty.

This will help you prioritize your study-time. Spend less time on the AP subjects you feel confident about, and more time on subjects you find more difficult.

Get your notes out. All of them!

You’ve been taking notes on each lecture, right? AP classes are taught around the structure of each AP exam, so everything your teacher talked about in class, and all assigned readings are fair game. If you want to be sure about the final exam topics, clarify them with your teacher and make frequent reference to AP Free Response Questions.

Pull out your old quizzes/tests.

Review them to see how much you've learned, refresh your knowledge of material from earlier in the course, and make sure you’re clear on any test or quiz questions you made mistakes on.

The night before the test, sleep!

Your brain will thank you. While you sleep, your brain will sort what you've studied to help you recall the information you need during the test.

The day of the test, hydrate and eat a good breakfast/lunch.

The last thing you want to be is hungry with your stomach pangs taking over your brain power.

BONUS tip: Take advantage of Free Response Questions (FRQs) available for every AP exam

The best way to get ready for any AP exam is by practicing with actual questions from the test. You can do exactly that with AP Free-Response Questions (FRQs). You can find FRQ’s for every AP subject here.
