tips for essays
As I have said before, you will be doing quite a few essays this school year so be prepared. You will never know what the essays are going to be about so don't even beg to find out. You might find this crazy but it actually helps because you won't know on the actual AP exam. Therefore, it is important that you study really well because the essays are free soil. When writing the essays it is never a bad idea to make an outline. Yes, these essays are timed but making an outline will actually save you time and make your essay more organized and probably even better. TAKE YOUR TIME! Just because the essays are timed doesn't mean you have to rush. I promise you will have plenty of time to finish the essays. If you finish the essay with time left over it is very wise for you to go back and revise/edit your work. These essays can sometimes be tough (especially if you haven't studied), so it is vital that you fight for every point you can get. Also it is a good idea to make sure you answer every part of the question, be careful to not overlook any part of a question.
