Hello! As you're balancing multiple AP classes, it's essential to devise a strategic study plan. For AP Environmental Science, start by reviewing the College Board's course description to understand the exam structure and main topics. Create a study schedule that allocates regular, manageable chunks of time for APES review alongside your other subjects.

Most students find a blend of class notes—which are tailored to your specific curriculum—and outside resources strikes the right balance. Try resources like CollegeVine for additional practice questions and the AP Environmental Science community for insights from other students.
