AP Exam Prep

SAT4BreakfastSAT4Breakfast Registered User Posts: 78 Junior Member
Anyone know anywhere I can review and practice for the new formatted AP Physics 1, European History, and United States History? All year we've been leaving for AP Physics B and I barely know the concepts, just the mathematics. Also looking for good sites on getting test practice for AP Biology. I'm using Cliffnotes to review for the AP. Is this sufficient for a 5?

    You can look at Collegeboard's websites and look over their old AP review tests. You can also go to the library or purchase AP study books to help prepare. Studying Cliffnotes alone probably isn't sufficient enough to get a 5 on the AP test. Hope this was helpful.

    @hokiehopeful12 Well I'm also taking the AP course and getting high 90s but I feel like I don't know the specifics despite getting really good grades. :L Im afraid Im still at square one. :'(

    I definitely encounter that problem a lot but keep in mind that AP tests aren't for a grade like in school and they just help you clear your schedule in the future and help save some money. So don't sweat it if you get like a 2 or a 3 or even a 1.

    The only way to do that then is to prepare for them. Ask your teacher for help and do a lot of practice especially cause of the whole time management thing. So good luck.

    AP Physics Essentials is a great book for AP Physics 1. I am currently using it and it helps explain concepts in a great way. There are also tons of problems with worked out solutions.
