Students in Advanced Placement classes are gearing up for exams that begin May 1 and conclude May 12 with classes spending the next weeks preparing in a variety of ways.

“We’re teaching them the College Board criteria,” AP Human Geography teacher Tim Johannes said. “We’ll practice like the test will be, we’ll do a lot of writing, a lot of bubbling, a lot of learning things for the first time, or the second time, depends on if they learned it the first time.”

It’s a much different situation in Humanities. A two year long course including freshman and sophomores, the sophomores will take the AP World History  on May 11, which means the class will be split until the exam.

“We are going to do half classes where students are working on their project,” Humanities and AP World History teacher Sarah Wiseman said. “During the other half of class, sophomores will be doing AP World History, and the freshmen will take that time and go with Mrs. (Sarah) Baker to her room, to do a novel study on Fahrenheit 451.”

For the sophomores taking the AP World History exam, the review will be somewhat self-guided.

“Our students got a survey that they did where they indicated the skills and the content areas that they felt weaker on,” Humanities and AP World History teacher Sarah Wiseman said. “We’re just going to tackle those in order from the ones that we feel least comfortable with, and try to work through as many as we can.”

In addition to preparing in class some students are opting to study outside of school.

“I usually just read through the AP study books as well as searching up study material,” sophomore Kevin Wei said. “In class we’re mainly just reviewing old AP tests. To everyone taking the test, make sure you know the format of the AP exam and manage your time wisely.”
