AP Literature dilemma...

so im taking the ap lit test tomorrow, apush friday, and ap chem next wednesday...

im in good shape for chem and history. Then there is lit...ive gotten a's in it throughout the whole year, but i despise the class. Ive been accepted to Grinnell, so i have to get a 5 on the test in order to get any credit...i do not think this is going to happen because i suck at the multiple choice section.

I would not have taken this test at all, but if i didnt i would not get honors credit at my school (there was no way i was not going to get advanced credit after all of the work we have done in there)

...so, what do you think about me just drawing some pictures for my essays, and not trying at all? (this would take suome pressure off, so that i might do well on the other two tests) will this hurt me in any way? (ive already paid, and because of the credit thing, i had to, so that is not an issue) what do you think?

    How many errors do you have in the MC section? If there are just a few (say 5 categories' worth) you can study all day and attempt the exam tomorrow.

    but id rather study for apush and chem, because i actually care about those subjects...im not going to get a 5 (= no college credit), so i dont see any point in trying at all

    Well, I guess you can skip it or write little blurbs on the subject, guaranteeing you a 1. Picture drawing would help.

    There really isn't a way to study for AP Lit. If you've read, say, 15 decent novels in your lifetime (and hey, they don't even have to be English, they'll take pretty much anything European (Flaubert, Dostoevsky, etc) and even American) you're about as prepared as you'll ever be. Just see what you do. Consider it a freakishly long pop quiz. If you'll be sitting in front of a paper for 3hrs, you may as well write something, but don't kill yourself studying.
    And btw gl on the exams.
