Self-study tips?

So I'm taking the following:
AP Chem
AP Physics B
AP Calc AB
AP World
AP English Language
Spanish 4

And on top of that I want to self-study AP Comparative Government and AP Macroeconomics. If anyone could please give suggestions that'd be awesome (PS- I already have the textbooks)
Many thanks!

    Chem is the hardest AP exam, so I suggest you really focus on that one. World, English Lang are relatively easy, and so is AB, depending on how good of a teacher you have. Physics B was kind of wishy-washy for me, so I'm not sure what to say on that one. I haven't taken the other APs yet.

    AP Comparative Government was an absolute cakewalk. If you have the Ethel Woods Comparative Government book, you're safe. I read that entire book over the weekend before the test and scored a 5.

    Do not try cramming for AP Macroeconomics though. It is an incredibly conceptual AP and while there is not as much content as say APUSH, you really need to know what you're doing rather than spitting out facts. I would give this AP at least a month reading a couple chapters a week. I scored a 5 on macro as well :).

    Good luck!
