AP Psychology.....easy

Did anyone else find this unbelievably easy. I didn't study at all and absolutely bombed the second essay.

Yet I still got a 5.

What a joke. I feel like I stole the credit I'm getting.

    Yes, it was easy. I self-studied the entire course in the 3 days before the test, and got a 5.

    It was pretty easy. I didn't have to do much outside studying because our teacher was excellent and had us go through Barron's before the AP. Also skimming through Crash Course was extremely beneficial the 1-2 days before test day. I got a 5 :)

    This from my experience was the easiest AP exam of them all.

    Hmmm was the class easy as well for anyone that didn't self-study?

    ^ That depends on the teacher. My teacher wasn't too hard, nor was she too easy. Her assignments were meaningful, and her quizzes and tests had a good mix of easy-difficult questions. I worked hard in the class, so I managed an A for all 4 quarters. I would ask former AP Psych students at your school for a better picture of the class :)

    I think people tend to overstate how easy they think the Psych test is. It definitely did require A LOT of memorization and the test was not always just straightforward, here's the obvious answer. I mean, I got a 5 last year, but it wasn't super easy.

    Sorry if my post is misleading. I did say it was one of the easiest AP exams I took, however you cannot just walk in unprepared. If you pay attention in class, then it will require much less studying when the time comes. If you are self studying, I can see how this test could be a pain due to a bunch of memorization. In my experience, I was exposed to the terms so much in class that I pretty much wasn't worried about the test at all and only used my AP Review book to skim the glossary and make sure I knew the key terms.

    My teacher was ****, I didn't have a Princeton Review, and I got a 5. I feel like I could've taken that class in 7th grade.

    I only used Barrons, read it twice, and took the practice exams. That is all I did, and I got a 5.

    Yep! I think it'll be the easiest AP I'll ever taken. 5.

    I'm taking Psychology but there is no AP Psych in my high school (just Dual Enrollment.)

    If I take this Psych class, would it be possible for me to take the AP exam?
