How well does Khan Academy prepare you for the AP exam?
I plan to take the AP US gov exam in the spring. Unfortunately, my school does not offer AP US gov. Instead, we have a regular, one semester, honors level government course (2nd semester). I intend to start learning all of the AP US gov information using Khan Academy and the AP site (practice questions and all that jazz), and then to review it all by using an AP US gov study book with multiple practice tests. I'm hoping to finish this all by about April, by which I will have also benefitted by having my knowledge supplemented by the honors level US gov course that I will be taking in school. My question is whether Khan Academy, the AP site practice, and in-depth reviewing of the material (as well as reviewing all of the essential documents and SC cases found in the AP US gov syllabus posted by the College Board) will be enough to sufficiently prepare me for the exam? If anyone who has self-studied for AP test (not just gov) has any insight, it would be greatly appreciated.1 replies
