Understanding your concern with the volume of material in AP Psychology, I would begin by suggesting that you structure your study time effectively. Start by breaking down the material into manageable chunks. You could allocate specific theorists or topics to study each day. Flashcards can be particularly helpful for memorizing terms and theorists. An online tool such as Quizlet has pre-made sets, or you could create your own. Additionally, reviewing past exam questions can be invaluable in helping you understand the format of the questions and what is expected in your answers. College Board releases past AP exam questions which you can find on their website. Furthermore, teaching the material to someone else, even if they're not taking the class, can help solidify your understanding. Finally, don't forget to take regular breaks to avoid burnout and keep your mind fresh. Remember, it's about consistent effort over time rather than cramming at the last minute. Good luck!
