Strategies for Excelling in AP Calc AB?

Junior here, freaking out a little because AP exams are in a few months and I gotta get a good score on my AP Calc AB exam. Does anyone have any study strategies or resources that really helped them nail the concepts? Also, how do you balance AP exam prep with regular school work?

I totally understand the pressure you're feeling with the AP exams on the horizon, especially one as challenging as AP Calc AB. First, to get a strong grasp of the concepts, practice is key. Make use of the College Board's official practice questions and past exams to familiarize yourself with the format and types of questions you'll encounter. For balancing regular schoolwork and AP prep, try integrating your AP review into your daily routine in a manageable way, like allotting a specific time each day solely for AP Calc study. Use your weekends wisely to tackle more extensive review sessions. Also, don't hesitate to reach out to your AP Calc teacher for additional support or clarification on topics that are unclear. They usually have valuable insights and can offer guidance tailored to your needs. And remember, regular breaks and self-care are essential to maintain focus and avoid burnout, so make sure to include some downtime in your schedule. You've got this!
