My Russian professor said that the grocery stores in Russia are better than the stores in America and everyone immediately started defending Publix.
This is how you know you’re in a classroom full of Floridians.
It’s 4 a.m. I’ve struggled for the last hour to go to sleep. But, I can’t. Yet again, I am tossing and turning, unable to shut down my brain. Why? Because I am stressed about my students.
Truer words never spoken.
Hi everyone! This is something that was actually requested last year, but I thought I might as well get it out there for the 2014 exams! Today, I’d like to share how I memorized the Bill of Rights (a very simplified and stressed out AP student-friendly version).
Good luck on the exam, and for the rest of the AP US Government and Politics’ review posts, click here!
Hi everyone! As a bonus for the 2014 exam, I’d like to share some tips on how I handled the 2013 AP US Government and Politics’ multiple choice section! If you’d like to check out my completed guide, click here! For my general tips, you can check out this!
First and foremost, I feel that the US Government and Politics’ multiple choice section is extremely predictable. Topics like federalism, the Supreme Court, incumbency, major Supreme Court cases, and Congress are like the class pets of the College Board. You will see multiple questions on all of these topics, and you’ll probably even see an FRQ or two on them. If you have been going through previously released multiple choice exams, you’ll be ready.
And, that’s all I can think of for now. Good luck on the exam! （○゜ε＾○）

Hi there! This is the first post of my AP Psychology review guide (and the first post of the 2014 exam year!) The AP Psychology exam will be on Monday, May 5th, 2014 in the afternoon. Like my previous introduction posts, I’ll be dividing this one up into parts!

IF YOU’RE READING THIS IN THE FUTURE (2015 EXAMS):
This guide was written with 2014 curriculum in mind. If the material tested on the exam is still the same, I hope my guide helps you prepare for the exam! If you’re reading this guide in 2014 and plan to take a 2015 exam, start preparing in the summer. I think this is especially important if you’ve never taken an AP exam before or if you’re planning on taking a heavy course load next year. Picking up some AP review books the summer before school starts can really help you prepare for what’s ahead of you.
It’s been so long since I’ve written one of these, but I hope these help out all of you preparing for the AP Psychology exam! I don’t really have anything particular to say about this exam other than I never want to do another outline again. (▰︶︹︺▰)
REPEAT AFTER ME:
Because I hate the stats section, I’m leaving it out this year, but I am including this:
“I can still get a lot done.” If you’re just now studying and reviewing for this exam, you still have time to up your scores and readiness. If you haven’t taken a full-length practice exam yet, I highly suggest that you do one this weekend (or sooner if you can), especially if you haven’t taken an AP class before. Knowing what you’re getting into is going to lower your anxiety and stress a lot. Trust me. I’ve been there. Plus, taking a practice exam will let you know what you need to focus on. Last minute studying is not the time to learn everything. It is a time to fine tune your skills. If you can breeze through the multiple choice, don’t bother with it. Work on your essays instead (and vice versa). Okay, so take that practice exam, and let’s get going.
Alright, so now that that’s out of the way, let’s get down to what the test really is. I’m putting this here, because even i forget with all of the classes and breakdowns jumbled around in my head.
BREAKDOWN and WHAT TO BRING:
70 Minutes: Multiple Choice [Number of Questions: 100] - 67%
50 Minutes: FRQ [Number of Questions: 2] - 33%
That’s a total of 120 minutes or 2 hours. Like all AP exams, you’re going to need to bring wooden #2 pencils, black pens (those provide the best contrast and thus make it easier for the readers. MAKE LIFE EASY FOR THE READERS), a watch, water, and a snack. The last three are optional but highly suggested. You will get hungry, and you will get thirsty. Your proctor might not give you the easiest clock to work with (I’ve had an analog in the front of an auditorium, while I was in the way back. Super difficult, man).
WHY TAKE THE EXAM SERIOUSLY:
If you are paying for your exams, spending months in class listening to lectures, doing hours of homework and studying, and outLINES, don’t you want to pass? You might have been taking this class to look good on transcripts, your friends all signed up for it, or maybe you thought it would it be a cakewalk. Whatever the reason, think about this. AP classes are Advanced Placement classes. Scoring well on this exam can possibly give you credit at whatever university you end up at (check your desired school’s website for the AP credit policy). Pretty great, right? Don’t blow this off, especially if you don’t want to deal with this in university. So now, how do we pass this nightmare?
HOW TO PASS THIS AND MOVE ON:
I can’t fit the answer to this in one post. Well, actually, I could, but it probably wouldn’t be very helpful. Therefore, I’m going to break the rest of this guide up into single posts relating to portions of the two sections. I’m going to start with the multiple choice and then cover the FRQs. For what I’ll be covering, check my AP posts’ navigation page!
WHAT TO DO ON THE TEST DAY AND THE NIGHT BEFORE:
Don’t cram. Don’t try to read a bunch of books. Don’t try to memorize all of the scientists and vocabulary. Calm yourself, seriously. Just don’t stress out. You’ve been working on this all year, and while I know some of you have a lot on your plates right now, do not drive yourself crazy—anymore than you already have. You’ve been in school for years. Not much of this is new. You just have to polish up your skills, and you’ll have this in the bag!
Eat a healthy dinner early on in the evening, and relax. On the morning of the exam, wake up at a decent time. Don’t rush yourself in the morning. Allow yourself to wake up and get motivated. If you can get a group of friends together somewhere on campus, have breakfast. It helps to wake you up and it gives you an energy-boosting meal to start the test. Also, wear comfortable clothing in layers, so you’re not sweating or shivering for 3+ plus hours. Lastly, be calm and slay that test. You can do this!
IN THE MEANTIME:
If you have any questions, feel free to message me. I’ll be happy to answer your questions or worries!
