AP Geography emergency!

<p>I am self studying AP geography with Barrons and I am still on chapter 6 of 8 (Economic Geography). Am I doomed?</p>

<p>No. A substantial portion of AP Geography questions are considered to be "common sense", at least to someone with a good humanities background. Also, a score of ~65% would most likely earn you a 5, so it's not necessary to know every bit of material.</p>

<p>Though I heard the FRQs are tough. How should I prepare for them? Is barrons enough to write well in the FRQs?</p>

<p>My best advice would be to </p>

<li><p>Read some old FRQs released by the actual college board</p></li>
<li><p>Read the Rubric and see how points are earned</p></li>
<li><p>Get a another old FRQ and try to answer it, earning every possible point</p></li>
<li><p>Then give someone else the rubric (preferably someone with the credentials to be a grader, although that might not be available) and have them grade it, explaining why you did/did not earn certain points.</p></li>

<p>ap human geo?
nah its easy</p>

<p>just finished chapter 6. Hopefully I can finish by tomorrow and have 5 days to review everything. I've only been reading this for about 2 weeks. :( I'm afraid I haven't absorbed the information enough. </p>

<p>Your tips are helpful jbruner! I will definitely try it.</p>

<p>Also, is the barrons practice tests harder than the real collegeboard test? Where can I find more practice exams?</p>

<p>On the college board web site, they'll have some sample multiple choice (about 40 for most courses) made to be as similar as possible to real exam multiple choice. Also, testprep.sparknotes.com/ap has free diagnostic tests for some subjects, but I'm not sure if they have geography or not.</p>

<p>You could always buy more review books, but I figured you knew that.</p>

<p>Barron's is most likely as hard or harder than the actual test, but it's difficult to say how much harder.</p>
