Sophomore AP Class Schedule -- Study Tips

edited August 2011 in High School Life
So I'm a high school sophomore (14 years old) and I'm taking 4 AP classes this year: AP Physics, AP Bio, AP English Language and Composition and AP World History.

Of all, I can already tell World History is going to be the hardest.
(Maybe because I have more of an affinity for science/math subjects, but WHAP just has so much work....)

The rest of my schedule, with the exception of Calculus is a joke, so I'm not too worried about not being able to put enough time into the classes...

Anyway...for all you experienced folk who have taken one, more, all or some of the classes in the same year, do you guys have any general tips/study tips for me?

Thanks!!

    AP Bio = class of memorization.

    AP English = expect lots of outside reading and essay writing.

    Thanks, CantConcentrate. How hard was the Biology exam?

    I'm taking 8 APs next year, just make sure you NEVER get behind. Always try to learn things and understand them as soon as possible (preferably right when they are taught, or even before that), don't put things off.

    That's amazing ^

    I'm just taking 2 (maybe 3) as a sophomore. They are Euro History, Stats, and maybe Chem. I'm self studying all of them.

    Just pay attention. AP classes are usually easy and the teachers will slowly build you up.

    easy^?

    I took one AP: AP Environmental Science last year and spent 3 hours a day doing homework, projects, labs, for that ONE class.

    Ended up getting a 2 on the AP test...
