Congratulations to anyone looking at this for simply taking AP Psychology. You're in for a lot of work, but it's managable and worth the time and effort. Like any class, how much time you devote to studying, the more you will get out of the class. By taking the step to register for this class, you've given yourself the opportunity to save thousands of dollars by passing the end of the year AP test. Take the initiative to take notes for every chapter. This seems like a lot of work, but it's worth it in the long run! The best thing you can do for yourself is simply looking at the material. The more you get out of the materials given to you, the better off you'll be in the class and for the big test at the end.
Find a Way that Works for You.
If you haven't already established the best way to study for yourself, try different studying techniques until you find the right fit. The sooner you know how you learn best, the sooner you will succeed in AP Psychology. If you don't know what works for you, look through this site and you might find something that gets you that A you've been striving for, whether it's watching psychology videos on YouTube or making notecards.
The Psychology of Letting Go
Doesn't really have anything to do with psychology, but Community is awesome. So, a tip for success in AP Psychology: Take Study Breaks!
Organization is extremely important to succeed in AP Psychology. Get a binder, and hole punch all of your handouts or get a notebook and a folder so you can keep track of everything given throughout the year. Mr. Wick hands out a lot of useful packets that will help with the AP test throughout the year. If you want to actually be able to use them to aid your studying, don't lose them! Some of the packets are 50 pages long and he doesn't have extra to give you in case you lose them. Good organization will lead you to your hopeful grade in the class and a 5 on the AP test.
