When Should a Student Start Studying for the AP Exam?



If you are wondering when should a student start studying for the AP exam, the answer is - it depends. Continue reading to understand in more detail the best study timefram for these essential exams.


Students who are not going to take a particular AP class, or even a less advanced level of that class, but who still want to take the AP exam, should, in general, start studying the August prior to the May in which the student will take the exam. This will give them enough time, as long as they diligently work on a weekly basis, to cover all of the material that they need to.


Students who take a semester-long AP class during the first semester should start studying for the AP exam right after that semester ends. For students who are consistently averaging an "A" in a year-long AP class, it’s usually ideal for them to take a practice test 2.5 months prior to the exam and start studying very soon afterwards. For students who are consistently averaging a "B" in a full-year AP class, it’s usually ideal for them to take a practice test 3 months before the exam and start studying very soon afterwards. If a student is averaging a "C", they shouldn’t focus on preparing for the AP exam until they’ve brought their average up to at least a "B".
