Review Tips for the AP Exam--CDS Version

I imagine AP review in on many of our minds--so much so for me that I posted a blog today for my kids.


Below is my blog post for my AP students. It includes many links and options they have for doing their review. In class, I recommend that they do what works best for their own brain. I also have a review assignment that jigsaw with each other.

This is something of a self-interested comment (sort of) but if any of you have suggestions about the review book that Allyson Weseley and I wrote (Barron's), please post the suggestions here. We're in the middle of doing revisions for the next edition and we'd love to incorporate your ideas if we can.
