<p>Has anybody used a book to help study for the AP English language and composition test? What book would you suggest? Are there literature questions on the books read in 11th grade on the test? Thanks for any help on this.</p>
<p>If you're still in need of a book, get Cliff's Notes AP Language & Composition. </p>
<p>It's one of the best prep books out there for the subject and my teacher even requires it in our class. I know that the AP Literature teacher requires the Cliff''s Notes version of Lit, too. </p>
<p>Hope this helps</p>
<p>I didn't really have a teacher for Lang, so I ended up studying on my own. It is a skills test, so it is difficult to study, but I would suggest studying key terms that might show up (antithesis, juxtaposition, etc.) and looking over sample essays. Taking practice multiple choice sections also helped. I used Barron's... AP English, which included Lit in it, for next year if you decide to take it. For the Multiple choice, there are no literature specific questions, but you may have you use books for support in the essays. For example, there will not be any MC questions like, "Fitzgerald, in the Great Gatsby, used Nick to represent...."
Good luck in May!</p>
<p>I didn't have a teacher either, and I didn't study. My best suggestion would be to go see your school's Latin teacher and ask for a list of devices she teachers her poetry students. Everything I needed was on that list...except I didn't study it, and couldn't pull out the term "preterition" when I needed it. I ended up just describing the term in my essay- not as impressive as summing it up in a word.</p>
