When do you register for AP's? Oh and book suggestions for self studying AP's!!!!

<p>Ok, thank you guys for all your help on the threads I posted before!!!! You're all awesome for sharing your advice with everybody. However, so the info is a bit scattered so I kinda gathered on the info from teh posts and I want to put it into a list to see if this is correct for self studying:</p>

<p>AP Pysch-Barrons
Ap Bio-Cliffs?
AP Econ: PR? o.O (Idk...) Or is it Barrons? (If you already self studied this please reply!)</p>

<p>I might be ambitious but I REALLY want to take Ap Pysch, Ap Bio, Ap Macro and Micro.... but when do I have to sign up to take the AP test?</p>

<p>Is it feasible if I start now or I have no time? I don't feel like I'm super smart or anything but I am diligent.... when do I have to register for the AP test?</p>

<p>Also for each of the ABOVE SUBJECTS THAT YOU HAPPENED TO SELF STUDY, how long did it take you to study/ like overall and daily how many hours did you put into it?</p>

<p>Any other suggestions for books over those subjects would SUPER HELP!!!!</p>

<p>Thank you so much guys for all that you have already done and helped with! :D</p>

<p>Calm down. I'm not super helpful but I can get this thread started. </p>

<p>First off, if you really feel like you can handle those self studies, go for it. Those are all easy to self study first off. Second off, unless you take a course most people don't start self studying until january anyway, so you're right on track. Thirdly, don't worry too much about signing up. The deadline should be about the very beginning of March. Go to the AP exam section of collegeboard.com and click on the registering section for information on who to contact for taking each AP exam. Also, talk to your school counselor. If your school offers all of those AP exams, you're squared away pretty much for signing up. Just talk to your school counselor and she'll take care of everything. If not, dont fret, it's just going to be a bit more difficult. Ask your school counselor for more information, and if she doesn't help check collegeboard or something, and find out which schools DO have those exams offered. Sign up for them then. That should get you started. You MAY not be able to take some of those ap exams because they are not offered in your area, so dont start studying until you are SURE you can take those specific exams. </p>

<p>I havn't self studied yet but have done plenty of research on it and will be self studying this year. I'm also taking an online course currently to help. It shouldn't be hard, you just need to memorize a review book for the easy self study courses and you can beast an MC section. For the essays, you just have to be good at BS'ing while throwing a bunch of terms out the window at the same time. </p>

<p>For AP Psych, I think the reccomended is Princeton Review and for AP Bio I believe it is cliffs. Not sure about the econs but check one of the stickied threads for book suggesstions. </p>

<p>Good luck! And hey, you can do anything you set your mind to. If it doesn't work out, boo hoo you wasted 100 bucks. I'm sure it will though. Just spend your spring break memorizing some review books and take a few practice tests and you should be fine.</p>

<p>EDIT: Check THIS thread for book suggestions: <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/ap-tests-preparation/201793-consolidated-book-suggestions-ap.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/ap-tests-preparation/201793-consolidated-book-suggestions-ap.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Apparently, you were right about AP Psych: barrons is the reccomended. For the econs, PR AND Barrons together are the reccomended books. Cliffs is AP Bio. Check that thread for any more book help.</p>

<p>Ok thank you very much!!!! :DDD</p>
