    How To Prepare for AP Tests :D

    Post  oisheeshemontee on Wed Apr 14, 2010 1:20 am

    April is nearly over, and for the average AHS student, that can only mean one thing – AP tests. Now, many students hear those dreaded three syllables and immediately cower in fear. Only a select few can brave the stress these mid-May monstrosities bring, and to those valiant souls we give the honored title of “nerd”. Living immersed in academia as these astute students do, they are more at home in these situations than others, and it is to them that we turn to for advice in these troubled times. Here, for the convenience of those unfamiliar with the habits of the nerd, are three extremely effective methods for preparing for the AP exams.

    1) Bury yourself under textbooks – is that the latest manga edition that came out yesterday? Yes? Well, put it away! No matter how well-drawn and absorbing these caricatures are, your AP Biology book is sure to contain even more exciting pictures. AP textbooks are the one sole strong barrier between you and failure to the point of embarrassment on the AP tests. Go ahead – replace that less-knowledgeable, distracting human best friend with your textbook! Granted, perhaps trips to the bowling alley won’t be as fun, but hey – more time to spend studying with your textbook, right?

    2) Find a friend – or at least, a smart person you can blackmail into helping you. Misery loves company, so AP season invariably finds clumps of AHS students all moaning about how little they got accomplished the previous night. Form an alliance with your buddies. Make study groups for a particular subject. Help each other stay on track. But be careful who you pick as a study buddy, because it’s easy to get distracted working with your closest friends. Hey, even nerds need help staying away from that WoW controller sometimes!

    3) Make a study schedule – Ah, the epitome of nerdiness! These are the equivalents of a social calendar for nerds, preplanning every step of the process toward academic enlightenment. There is no denying that they are effective, however – time management and careful planning are useful safeguards against that common student malady, procrastination. And AP season is one of the worst time to get bit by the procrastination bug. So make a study schedule – keep it secret if you wish to protect your cool reputation, although a true nerd would never hide such a vital part of themselves from the world. Just remember to plan at least an hour each day for relaxation and recuperation from all the stress. For the average nerd, this is when they turn to their stamp collection, or look through all those laundry coins for that elusive Alaska state quarter.

    AP testing can be overwhelming, no doubt. But with a little faith, trust and sprinkle of magic nerdy dust, anything can happen. Now, please excuse me. I must go finish reading the complete collection of Tolstoy novels before my break ends, and I get back to calculus problems.

    April is nearly over, and for the average AHS student, that can only mean one thing AP tests. Now, many students hear those dreaded three syllables and immediately cower in fear [awk]. Only a select few can brave the stress that these mid-May monstrosities bring, and to those valiant souls, we give the honored title of “nerd." Living immersed in academia as these astute students are, they are more at home in these situations than others, and it is to them that we turn to for advice in these troubled times.

No matter how well-drawn and absorbing these caricatures are, your AP Biology book is sure to contain even more exciting pictures. AP textbooks are the one sole strong barrier between you and failure to the point of embarrassment [delete] on the AP tests. Go ahead replace that less-knowledgeable, distracting human best friend with your textbook! Granted, perhaps trips to the bowling alley won’t be as fun, but hey more time to spend studying with your textbook, right? [i get your point, but going to the bowling alley would kinda defeat the purpose....? perhaps say instead of talking on the phone etc., you can have a nice convo with your book or something.]

    2) Find a friend— or at least, a smart person that you can blackmail into helping you. Misery loves company, so AP season invariably finds clumps of AHS students all moaning about how little they got accomplished the previous night. Form an alliance with your buddies.

    April is nearly over, and for the average AHS student, that can only mean one thing— AP [you might need to say "Advanced Placement (AP)"] tests.

    Living immersed in academia as these astute students are, they are more at home in stressful testing situations than others, and it is to them that we turn to [del "to" cuz you have it before "them" already] for advice in these troubled times.

    Granted, perhaps [del "perhaps"] your social life will [change "will" to "may"] slowly degenerate into nothingness, but hey— more time to spend studying with your textbook, right?

    But with a little faith, trust, and a sprinkle of magic nerdy dust, anything can happen.

    I must go finish reading the complete collection of Tolstoy novels before my break ends and get back to calculus problems. [a little awk; change to one or the other maybe?]
