Hello! So I made a profile post about this but I feel an open thread can get some more attention and can let more people see it. AP Tests are coming around for us Muricans and I thought this could help give some advice to test takers and be a little source for people to ask questions about their course. That being said, if you do have a question, please say the courses name so we know what you're talking about. Some general tips for all exams are to get a good sleeping schedule 3 nights in advance. Say you have a test this upcoming Monday (which would be chemistry and psych I believe), you should start sleeping early and waking up early on Friday night and do the same for the whole weekend. I also recommend you get used to eating breakfast in case you don't already because the exams last quite some time and you only get a 10 minute snack break once in the exam. Another good tip, though extreme, is to take adderall if you have difficulty staying focused. I personally don't think I'll be doing this, but it's helpful if you apply to this. Dress in layers in case you are testing somewhere you don't know is well kept in Air conditioning. Yeah, the weather is getting nice, but if you have an air vent overtop of your head blowing cold air on you, it would suck to have that be the reason you do poorly on your exam. Try to avoid studying the night before. Similar to SAT testing, doing practices or reviewing material the day before you take an exam will make you just hate reading it more. At the end of the day, this test is an arduous and grueling exam that takes a long amount of our time and culminates the whole year's worth of learning. You don't want to go into the exam hating the material more than you may already because that'll just cloud your thinking. Bring some spare batteries for your calculator exams. Imagine if your battery EXPLODES RANDOMLY IN YOUR CALCULATOR OH MY yeah no thats not happening but make sure you replace your shit before you take the exam, they're somewhat doable without it but taking say the Calc exam without it would drop you at least 2 levels. Keep spare sharpened pencils and stuff with you, it's a waste of time to ask your proctors to sharpen your pencils if they are even able to (which I highly doubt). If you have any questions regarding Chemistry AP, Physics 1 AP, or Calculus AB AP, I'm taking those three and I'm confident I will get at least a 4 in all of them, so tag me in the comment. Feel free to ask about other exams, too, and maybe someone could answer in my place. Hope this proves to be helpful, good luck to all!
