I'm currently a junior and AP U.S History is my first AP class and I've been nervous about it, even as the year has progressed (currently a month into school). My teacher has been known for his remarkable results (95% passing rate I heard) and I trust his method 100%; yet I feel as if I'm the bottom 5%.
Recently, I talked to a friend who says he spends 2 hours a night studying for the class (which I thought was crazy). But it did get me thinking, what else could I do to better prepare for the test.
As a new AP student, I'm unexpreinced with all the prep materials and study habits exhibited bu other students. I have only been doing the work provided, which I feel won't be enough at the end of the day. I was wondering what prep materials (flashcards, books, etc) you use and study habits you've delveloped to help you with the course and succeed on the exam.
