Hey there! It's fantastic that you're aiming for a 5 on your AP Lit exam! For the literary analysis portion, my top tip is to practice active reading. This means that as you read, keep a pencil in hand to annotate the text. Look for literary devices, themes, and character development. By actively engaging with the text, you'll remember more and have a deeper understanding. Also, practice writing concise thesis statements and using textual evidence effectively in your essays. For managing the reading load, try setting up a reading schedule that breaks down the material into manageable daily chunks. It's also helpful to discuss the readings with classmates or a study group to deepen your understanding and get different perspectives. Lastly, make sure to review past exam questions and practice under timed conditions to get a feel for the exam's pacing. Good luck!
