Thread: AP tests?

Is anyone else besides me taking any AP tests? If so, just out of curiosity, tell me. If you have endured some in the past, you're welcome too, because i'm an inclusive kind of person. Ill start the list. Also post what you do to keep the stress away during this crazy time of outlandish academia.
For some reason my Eng. Lit. class as a whole took up Tai Chi . . . . . . Helps in all my classes. GREAT stress reliever.

Well, I have never been offered any AP courses… or Honors courses except for English Honors… which is exactly like my 9th grade English class at my old school.
Most advanced math we have at my current school is… pre-calc, and physics is great without any lab of any sort.
So, nope, no AP courses.

Just took Calculus BC today, and Eng. langauge yesterday. The english was tougher than I expected, but i think i did well. Calc BC was a grueling 4.5 hours of derivatives, integrals, diff eq's and other fun stuff of that nature. Very long and tough, but I felt pretty confident about it, and only had significant trouble with one section (multiple choice with no calculator).
Its interesting because in all the practice tests (official AP tests from past years) I've done, the calculator section has been quite a bit harder; especially multiple choice. Today seemed to be the opposite, go figure.

Wow - smarty pants - Calc BC. Good job!
I was lazy,and not enoght people signed up for BC to carry it as a class at my school. I was gonna take the Eng. Lang., but the college i am going to gives the same credit for either test. So i chose Lit because it maximized my study time. Calc and the english one I feel fine about, but the Physics . . . . *shudder* . . . I feel like im drowning!
Hope you pass! (with fives, of course!)

English language and Comp yesterday and US History Friday. The English test was a joke. I actually finished early enough to sleep for around 20 minutes on the essays. The History DBQ will pain a MAJOR pain in the @$$ though.Wake up you're dead.

Really? Maybe I should have taken the Eng. Lang . . . . .
Hope you get fives too!

Back in the day I took the AP English lit and the AP English language...failed both . Also took AP Eeuro History, failed that. Took AP Govt, passed that, AP U.S. Hist, passed that, and finally AP Calc AB, passed that with a 5 . The biggest peace of advice I can give you for the AP Calc one is: write things down. Even if you don't know how to do the whole problem, write down any formula you can remember, for example if you know that the problem has something to do with the area, write Area=Integral...etc You get partial credit for that.
BTW, do they still tell you beforehand what era the DBQ is going to be for U.S. history?

No . . . . I wish . . . . that would have been handy last year when I failed that test . . . . On a physics free-response I couln't remember how to work with the inertia stuff . . . . just wrote down the formula(s) a bunch, since they give you a formual sheet and mooched enough points for a 3 . . .
*does Tai Chi.
Good luck Shawshank!
