January 21st, 2016

AP Classes are no joke. They come with a heavy work load, and it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Here are some Corona del Mar APUSH tutor tips to keep you afloat!

Quick 1-2-3 Tips

I have my quick 1-2-3 that I usually go after first (any Corona Del Mar APUSH tutor worth a nickel should be able to give you these tips…):

1) Make a list of all grades lower than an 85%

2) Attack the lowest grades first:
-Make chapter outline
-Take practice quizzes/online tests on that material
-Take section review/chapter review tests from book or study guides

3) Make flashcards on all missed questions from review quizzing (each card needs 5 bullet points on the back hitting these three areas: a) definition b) historical significance c) political, social, economic implications

Overall there should be some major units to review that the teacher hammers (and really what the College Board/AP test likes to drill). Understanding the major pillars from each unit, and re-reading the study guides and ANNOTATING as you read, will help to keep the major points at the top of your mind.

Know the major players from each unit, what their contributions were, and how they made lasting changes (why we are learning about them.)

In terms of execution of the plan, make a checklist with everything that you will study, and allocate a specific number of minutes to each portion of the checklist. That way you can assign a date/time to the task to ensure it gets done (and you can plan your life so you aren’t cramming like crazy).
