Bryce Boese – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Advanced Placement (AP) testing begins Monday, May 7. Most AP classes are done covering new information, and are reviewing the material studied over the course of the year.
Students who took AP classes all year have different strategies when it comes to preparing for the exams.
The first scheduled AP exams are AP chemistry, Spanish and psychology. The last day of exams is May 18, with human geography, microeconomics, and European history.
Senior Joeseph Maier has taken more than five AP classes throughout high school. His strategy to approaching an exam is simple, “I typically partake in the reviews that go on in class. Then, I’ll study the entire night before hand so that I can get a five on the exam.”
AP exams are scored on a 1-5 scale. A three is generally considered passing.
LRHS AP student senior Conner McCabe likes to create study habits by using a study schedule, “I like to try and study as much as I can, and I usually study content from the beginning of the year to refresh my mind on what I need to know for the exam.”
Junior Emma Donato has taken AP classes for three years and has had a high success rate with them. “I make sure to eat a healthy vegan breakfast before my exams and to get a good night’s sleep to be prepared as I can for the exam,” she said.
