many of my friends don't study. I am not sure how to. Should i look over my classwork or should i buy a book? How much should you study for them in comparison to standarized testing?

    Depends on the subject and how much you know the material. Usually going over the textbook is enough.

    Ideally, you finish a course in the corresponding subject.
    Then, you spend some time reviewing the material,
    using your textbook and a streamlined review book.

    buy a review book, and take plenty of practice exams.

    If you've seen the type of material covered and you feel as if the teacher you have is covering it, really don't worry.

    If you feel like the teacher isn't covering it, read over the textbook and brush up on the stuff from earlier on in the year. But, that's the extent of it. You can also have study groups if that's your thing.

    P.S. It IS a standardized test. Just more material specific.

    Do the past exams they release on the site. It goes back 10 years. If you can do them, you should be fine on ANY AP.
