Test Help! (AP World History) - November 19th 2014, 11:31 PM

Hey!

Before I write anything, I would like to point out that I am an all A student, and generally don't have to study too much. I normally don't get test anxiety, but with AP world... it may be so

I understand the basic ideas of the eras we study, and I look at important people as well. I study hard for this class. On test day, I see a lot of material I didn't remember learning too much about.

Now I am not really used to the test format yet since this is my first AP class, and the questions are more analytical than I am used to. I get it... the tests just don't work for me. We've taken about four, and I haven't really improved.


Advice??

You should definitely talk to your teacher about this, they can give you some study tips for the class. AP classes are tough because they are structured to be more like college classes than high school classes. The test are typically more analytically, which means you need to try and learn the concepts in order to understand that facts.
You're also going to have to study for these tests. The material on the exams that you don't remember learning may have been little things your teacher mentioned (so always take notes!) and it could potentially come from the textbook too if your class uses one.


And here you are living, despite it all.

if the course is like college then you MUST get every textbook , powerpoint , what every is note in that class and divided it up in this way : 1 to know all terms which can be done by making the into flash cards ( term on oneside , awsner on other , 2 to make a time line with the important dates , and connect the numbers into a way you will remember, 3) make the events into short stories you can remember ( I used to make the events in to story stories , 4 study a hour a day a week-3 days ( very min two days) before the test.

Repeat = good exam results from all the tests , because even if you do bad on the tests you will most likely know it for the exam ( I got 198/ 200 I think on my history )
