AP Exam Schedule

AP final exam tests began this week!  The first AP exam test was Monday, May 1st with students taking Environmental science and Psychology.  Tuesday tests followed with Computer Science, Spanish, and Physics.  The AP exams are extremely important for students to succeed on and try to receive college credit for the class.  Students need to be studying for the exams in order to receive the highest scores possible.  Kenston students are prepared well by their teachers and from their study habits.  Keep an eye out for teachers holding last minute review sessions.  Also, get together with your friends to incorporate some fun into what could have been long, boring hours of studying.  Currently, some AP Government students are thinking of meeting up at Panera in Chagrin tonight (5/3/17) to study.  Helpful study tips for individuals or groups include:

-Crash Course books

-Heads Up vocabulary game

-Released AP exam questions

-Quizlet

-Jeopardy  

Keep up the hard work until the end of the year.  “I have been studying hard for my AP exam in Government and feel prepared by my teacher and from study groups with my peers.  I am ready to get a 5 on this exam!” said junior, Lauren Eyler.  I wish everyone the best of luck on their tests and hope you end the year strong!
