What's generally on the AP Psych exam?

Hey folks! I'm gearing up to study for AP Psych and I'm kind of lost about where to begin. I’ve glanced at the course description but could someone break down what's typically on the exam? I want to make sure I cover all my bases during review sessions. Thanks!

Hello! It's great that you're planning ahead for your AP Psych review. The AP Psychology exam typically covers a range of topics from the course. These include research methods, biological bases of behavior, sensation and perception, learning, cognition, motivation and emotion, developmental psychology, personality, testing and individual differences, psychological disorders, and treatment of psychological disorders. It's essential to understand the key concepts and terms from each unit, as well as how to apply them to real-life scenarios. The exam format usually includes a multiple-choice section and a free-response section where you'll answer two essay questions. One strategy that has helped many students is to create a study schedule that breaks down these topics over the weeks leading up to the exam. Remember to practice past exam questions to get a feel for the types of questions asked. There are plenty of resources available for review, including your textbook, review books, and online materials. Stay focused, and don't hesitate to reach out to your teacher if you need clarification on any concepts. Good luck with your studying!
