Hi Shreya

I love your positive academic attitude!!
AP is a rigorous class that isn't for everyone so, be patient with yourself. Make sure you're consistently studying and asking questions. Time management is key in AP classes, especially considering the AP exam.Use your environment and conversate with people who have taken AP classes. I would suggest even buying the book because Oxford Learning shows ''information is retained when multiple senses are used...it's easy to be distracted and fall into the habit of mindless scrolling online." Try to not procrastinate especially if you are taking multiple AP classes. To make it easier, set up a schedule for reading or taking notes times so you can be as relaxed as possible. Remember study, study, study, and find out what study method works best for you. Hope you do well!!

AP classes can be quite challenging and move at a brisk pace. However, you can conquer them with a bit of preparation and the right mindset. Start by getting to know the topics, study materials, and textbooks related to the class. This will give you a head start and make you feel more confident when the class begins. Set achievable goals for yourself and remember, stress is not your friend. Believe in your abilities and go for it. Good luck, you've got this!

Vamshee’s Answer

I encourage you to delve into research about the AP class and exam experience. Engage in conversations with those who have already taken the AP classes you're planning to enroll in, to gain insights on the topics you'll be studying.

Invest in the AP textbook and Test Prep Books. It's important to stay updated as the AP exam syllabus may undergo changes in the new academic year. So, keep an eye out for any modifications in the AP subject that piques your interest.

Take a sneak peek into the textbook and familiarize yourself with the syllabus. This will give you a head start and make you feel more confident.

Try your hand at some practice tests to understand the exam pattern, the process, and the kind of questions that are typically asked. This will help you get a feel of the actual exam.

Explore YouTube videos or any other online resources related to AP. These can be a treasure trove of information and can aid in your understanding of complex topics.

Remember, it's crucial not to stress. Take things lightly and maintain a relaxed attitude. This way, you can focus more on absorbing knowledge rather than fretting over the 'what ifs'.

I hope these tips prove beneficial for you!

Nicolas’s Answer

I wouldn't do anything outside what you're going to do. Believe that if you waste too much energy there is no acquisition left for learning, and you could burn out. The most I would do before taking the class is learn names of authors and years books offered were wrote. Know that the energy it takes in AP is not even the energy it takes in a college classroom and the energy it takes in a college classroom is not even the energy it takes at work.
