AP MC No different from any standardized test in that they all have the following two concerns: 1.You must manage a limited amount of time well 2.You must guess wisely and aggressively
Some Tips Have a plan –Note the time and number of passages –Pck a passage to do first –Pick a passage to do last (or skip) Work the Passage Answer the questions in the order you choose
Time Management Do it your way Which passages are the hardest? Consider skipping a passage Half bad = all bad in an answer Eliminate the obvious and come back Be fearless!
POE When in doubt, look for wrong answers and eliminate Eliminate the obviously wrong, then look more closely at what’s left Half bad = All bad Don’t leave any question blank – EVER!
The 7-Minute Passage Check your watch: last passage with 7 minutes or less? –Don’t read the passage, go directly to the questions –Answer the questions that do not require reading –Answer the questions that take little reading –Answer what’s left over until you run out of time
