AP Chemistry Exam Content Volume?

Hey, I'm juggling a lot of extracurriculars and wondering how hefty the AP Chemistry exam is. Does anyone who's taken it remember how many questions there were, plus any tips for handling the workload?

Hey there! It's great that you're being proactive about managing your workload. The AP Chemistry exam is indeed a challenging one. It comprises two sections: the first is 60 multiple-choice questions, which you'll have 90 minutes to complete, and the second section is seven free-response questions, which take up another 90 minutes. The exam covers a broad range of topics, including atomic structure, chemical reactions, and thermodynamics, just to give you a few examples.

As for tips, definitely prioritize your study time to focus on the areas you are less familiar with, and make sure you're comfortable with the calculator policies and the type of calculator you'll use. Regular practice with past exam papers can also be incredibly beneficial. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need some more study strategies or support—your success is what we're here for!
