AP English Language Exam Thread

<p>Let's discuss how everyone's preparing. I'm not really doing anything for it. For one, I think I'm about ready. Two, what is there to do?</p>

<p>Where can you find practice tests besides sparknotes?</p>

<p>I'm just going to take a few minutes to look at some literary terms.</p>

<p>Doing 1 section of Cliffs (~15 questions) or night.</p>

<p>Probably will look over some terms the night before.</p>

<p>The essays on rhetorical analysis. For people taking the test, what aspects of rhetoric do you first focus on when planning the essay as you read the passages?</p>

<p>I'm just doing a couple of practice tests... hope it's enough.</p>

<p>I start with tone then move to diction and and the appeals. Depends on the prompt. Is it just me, or is the multiple choice HEEELLLLLL!!! I'm shooting for a 5 on the test, but I'll settle with around 30 points on the MC, which is quite low I think...</p>

<p>anyone have audit test? Have tons of tests to trade. Whatever you need, I most likely have it :)</p>

<p>Yeah all the multiple choice practices I've done all year are pretty rough. Hopefully the real test is easier then the stuff we practice with!</p>

<p>Really Bigb? Could you send me a couple of past years English MC?</p>

<p>By the way, what would you say a good average score on the multiple choice score is for the Barron's?</p>

<p>Buuuuuummmpp</p>

<p>AH I'm so nervous! It's my first AP of the year and I know I'm capable enough to get a 5. Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day :]</p>

<p>I'm going to do some practice Part I's over the weekend.</p>

<p>Our teacher gave us the released 2005 test as practice (and counted it for a grade).</p>

<p>is anyone doing anything specific to prepare for the synthesis essay? that and the rhetorical essay are the two I am most worried about...</p>

<p>For the rhetorical you might want to go over AP terms to be able to identify and name the strategies.</p>

<p>Does anyone know how the scoring is? Like what's the least amount of questions and lowest scores you can get and still receive a 5?</p>

<p>buuuummmp Does anyone have past year's MC questions anyone?</p>

<p>What do you expect the essays to be on? I expect the analysis to be a tongue-in-cheek article. They haven't had one for awhile. BTW, I'm still scouring the site for English MC. Please mail me if have any offers.</p>
