AP Spanish- Which Verb Tenses?

Which verb tenses do you cover in AP Spanish?

I've read the Barron's AP Spanish book, but I'm really looking for a list of which specific tenses are covered at either the AP Spanish level, or 3rd full year college level.

    I'm in AP Spanish this year, and we learned all the tenses in Spanish 3 last year and just reviewed them this year. So I would say definitely know all of them.

    Wow, you learned all 14 verb tenses in Spanish 3?

    Are there any that are more popular in AP, such as Subjunctive?

    Yup, my teacher decided to teach us a bunch of tenses in the last quarter haha. I think subjunctive is really important, there always seems to be some sort of focus on it and my teacher always makes us include at least a few in our essays.

    I actually learned all of them in prior years and now we just focus on using them more often.

    For AP Spanish, you need to know all of the tenses. The exam tests you on your ability to write, read, listen, and speak Spanish. You need to know all of them... it's not like a standard Spanish class where only some tenses are tested. This is overall proficency in Spanish
