How do I study for AP tests?
I'm in my senior year and I've never studied for anything until now. I have a lot riding on these tests. I'm taking calc, macro, gov, eng lit and eng lang (I figured since they're similar, I might as well take both so it gives me a better chance of getting credit). My school's not known for having high AP scores--in fact, last year most people scored 1s, 2s and the rare 3s.
I'm confident that I can make a 3 on the macro and calc tests, but I need a 4 to earn college credit.
The ones I have 0 confidence going into are the English and government tests. I don't remember anything about government because I took it my first semester and I feel hopeless in English. I took a practice test for English lang, which came with a AP book I got, and scored a 2 (barely), but I need a 3.
I have the AP books, but I don't know how to actually set up times to study. Should I study all 4 subjects every day throughout the day? Study 1 subject for 1 hour and call it a day? 30 minutes? Are there any extra resources besides the AP books, Youtube and collegeboard that I can use?
