Well, it's almost time to take AP exams once again. Continuing from where the last thread left off...

Which ones are you guys taking this year? Any advice to offer people who are taking a test that you've already taken?

Last year I took AP European History, and this year I'm taking AP US History and English 3 AP (forgot what the exam for that subject is called...). Anyway, it should be nice to get 'em over with; once we're done, we'll be doing absolutely nothing in those classes. But, until then, I'll have a fuck-ton of studying to do.

I'm not taking any as I am already at uni, i didn't even take any in high school....even if i would have it would have maybe saved me 6-9 credit hours at most....high school was way to early for me to really start caring about uni grades...

If you're taking AP English, make an outline before you write your essay. Or sketch out an outline of your essay after you've written it. Just have an outline on your paper.

BC calculus, American government, english lit, and english language and composition. I've already taken chemistry and US history in the past. I'm not too worried about any of them. Advice: answer the question! They don't care how well you can write an intro paragraph (except english tests). They want to see if you know the information. Show them. Don't wastw time beating around the bush.

I'm taking AP Literature, American Gov, Macro, Micro, and Enviro Science. After this I'll have 11 exams done, which counts for the entire first year of the college I'm going to (Florida State) so I can go directly into my major!

For anyone taking english language & comp, for the essay portion use a lot of detail. I got a five on the exam because I used the whole essay packet to write my responses with a ton of detail. Oh and use Rage Against the Machine references, apperantly most of the English language grading board are fans of Rage

None last year, but APUSH and Chem this year.

I might be ****ed in APUSH because our teacher had a baby early in the year and wasn't there for 4 months. So needless to say we're pretty far behind right now. On top of that, she absolutely HATES teaching APUSH, so we don't really even get every far when she is there. But we took a practice exam last week and I did fairly well on it, so I may actually have a chance.

And I'm horrible in Chem, so we'll see how that goes. I'm just gonna practice the sh*t out of AP questions and hope I get used to the types of questions on the exam so I can make educated guesses. I don't even remember why I took this class

I'm taking Bio, Stats, and Spanish.

I'm not really worried about Bio because my teacher is a slavedriver and makes us study all the time, and even if I don't do well on Spanish (which I won't because who the hells can talk for 20 seconds in response to "Hola") I should get credit if I take another placement test since I've been learning Spanish for the last 10 years.

Stats, on the other hand...they should call that class AP Obscure Calculator Buttons
I don't remember how to do ANYTHING from last month or before that >.<

I took Chemistry, Micro/Macro econ, Lang and Comp, and Calc AB last year and APUSH the year before that.
Chemistry is a hard class, but you only need 35% or something to get a 3. Calc was alright, the free response questions were easy for me but the multiple choice sucked.

For the Lang/Comp exam, they like it if you can write humorously while still staying on topic so I think that's why I did well on that one, and it helps if you can read fast too for the MC section

I hate social studies so I didn't bother studying for APUSH or Econ. But WRITE FAST for APUSH

I'm taking Spanish, Bio, Physics C Mech, Physics C E and M, AP Eng/Lit, and AP Euro. I'm feeling pretty good about all of them except Euro, and that can be fixed pretty easily.

The good news is that my real work year ends after May 9th. I'll probably be done with track. State competition for math team will be done like two weeks before then. I'm sure my English teacher will try to pull something, but being a senior is great.

Same, I can't wait for those 3 weeks of doing absolutely nothing
I still have to take finals for my non-AP classes later but there's only 3 of them and I don't care about them so it's all good

then this is good news. because if i get a 35% i'll have a heart attack out of pure shock.

Taking AP english lit and spanish

Last year I took environmental, gov, english lang, and music theory

If you had gov first semester, you're pretty much screwed unless you have great recollection of random court cases and different laws that have passed. Environmental was cake for me, however environmental science is what I'm planning on minoring in when I go to university, so that may have just been me. Lang and Music Theory are alright as long as you're confident in yourself.

Took AP Art History and AP Music Theory last year. I got a 3 on the Art History and a 2 on the Music Theory. I didn't put much time at all into studying either - granted I'm not sure how much good studying would do on the Music Theory exam.

This year I'm taking AP English 3, AP US History, AP Enviro Science, and AP Stats. I predict high marks on AP English and History because I enjoy both those classes immensely. I'll probably scrape a 3 or maybe a 4 if I'm lucky on the Enviro test. I'll be lucky to get a 3 on the Stats test.

Ouch... That's pretty much the worst thing that could happen in an AP history class.

Good idea. I'm taking AP US history and AP English. Sadly, i forgot to fully pay for the tests so i'm at the mercy of the (hopefully) remaining extra tests...

Taking Psych. I missed a the only practice session for the multiple choice part today cause I was on a field trip and couldn't make it in time T-T. I'm terrible at the written stuff too, but at least I have some time to practice.

APs saved me so much, I got 33 credit hours just from them. Because of that, I managed to get a minor in psychology and finish all of my liberal studies in my first year. Last year, I did Stats, Literature, Micro, Government and Psychology. 4, 4, 4, 5, 4.

US History, and 11th grade English (Language and Composition). I am so ****ed. Hopefully I'll get 4s in each. 3s probably. 5s if I **** the people scoring them?

Taking AP Euro this year, next year is AP Calc, US History and Environmental Science.

I'm taking Calc BC, Physics B, Physics C E&M, Physics C Mech, Macroeco, US Gov and English Lit and Comp. Not really worried about any of them except maybe Mech since I slept through most of the first semester of physics.

Sophomore year I got a 3 on AP Euro, last year I got a 4 on APUSH and a 5 on Stats, and this year I'm taking Calc AB, English Lit, and US Gov/Poli Sci. I'm doing well in calculus and english, and my english teacher has an 88% pass rate on the exam in his class, so I'm not too worried. I just don't give a damn about Gov at this point, but my dad teaches it at another school so I'll probably do pretty well anyway.

I've never thought it was that bad. The only 'tough' classes I've ever taken were Physics C and Calc BC. Physics C would probably have been easier if I had actually taken B last year instead of skipping over it.

To be honest, I don't know why I'm taking all of these. The college I'm going to doesn't accept AP test scores.

EDIT: ^Calculus is my favorite math. It's actually useful.
