The days are getting warmer and you’re counting down to summer vacation. Don’t rest on your laurels yet: there’s still the matter of finals and those all-important AP exams. Hopefully, you’ve been studying diligently throughout the school year, maybe with the help of an AP exam tutor. Of course, like many of us, we get busy with extracurricular activities and (God forbid) a social calendar.
Don’t worry. Fortune Tutoring is going to help you get ready for your finals and your AP exams. If you follow these guidelines, you stand a great chance of passing your tests with great grades if you’ve been studying; and a good chance of passing if you’ve been less than studious. Follow these steps and be ready for your exams:
• Go through your notes and highlight key points, persons, dates, places, and events. Study their significance. No notes? Start highlighting these same variables in your textbook.• Create flashcards or visual aids to help you remember these key terms. You can create them by hand or try using any of the web-based flashcard tools on the ‘Net. Go through your flashcards over and over again until memorized.
• Consider making a mock quiz from your notes and flashcards so you can test yourself. Going through the motion of a test can ease anxiety at the actual test.
• Get someone to help you study, like a friend, family member, or AP exam tutor.
• The night before the test you can review the materials expected to be covered, but don’t try to cram. Make sure you have everything you need for the exam tomorrow. Get a good night’s sleep before the test and have a nutritious breakfast when you wake up.
Best of luck to you on your exams. You’ll do great!
