Prep, Prep, Prep, for the AP Test
Starting May 7th, Churchill seniors, juniors, and sophomores will take various AP tests, to earn college credit.
“I am in AP English 3, AP U.S. History, and AP Government,” Chad Hamman, junior, said, “Like most people, I feel stressed out, but everything seems O.K., as of right now.”
Not only is AP testing stressful, it’s has a price. In addition to 30 dollars per test, many students have purchased AP prep books to use for studying.
“I purchased 3 AP books for Chemistry and World History,” Isabelle Warrington, sophomore, said, “‘500 Questions to Know by Test Day’, the ‘Princeton Review for AP Chemistry’, and ‘5 Steps to a 5’.”
If you pass an AP test, you can earn college credit, which is a big incentive for students at Churchill.
“I’m in an AP class because of the curriculum, how in depth it goes, and I’m also trying to prepare for further classes,” Trinity Shuler, sophomore, said, “it’s college credit, its perfect.”
Some normal classes will be relocated during the week, so check with your teachers if you aren’t testing. If you are testing, make sure to get a good nights sleep and eat a healthy breakfast. Good Luck!
