Before you go to the exam, take some time to review for it. First look at your homework, if you need to do any additional research consult your teacher and take the time to review. You can find the Calculus AP Test Outcomes and Study Guide on the Calculus website. If you do not have access to a computer this is an easy solution. You can download the PDF file from the Calculus website and print it off.
It is important to spend some time reviewing your work. If you read over your notes carefully, you will see areas of difficulty that you can work on to make the topics easier to understand. This will increase your understanding of the material and you will have learned the material by heart not just from reading dry textbook cover-ups. It does take some time to learn things so don’t be impatient. Remember that you are preparing for the test not for fame and fortune.
Once you have done your homework and reviewed your notes then its time to decide where you will take the Calculus Exam. The first obvious choice is taking it at the local University. If you are attending a University that offers the course to make sure you find out how to take the exam and if it is mailed or given by hands. You do not want to have a hard time taking it if it isn’t convenient for you. If you are at a Private University then the only real option is taking it online.
There are many places online where you can take a Calculus Exam and review it. The most obvious choice is a Calculus Review Group. These review groups are run by professors who have a lot of time to devote to their students. They have seen all the problems and the answers and they will give you the best possible answer.
You have to be careful though when choosing a Calculus Review Group to join. These groups are usually run by people who just want to make money. Some are pretty good and there are some which are not. The best ones are the ones that answer your questions honestly and help you get ready for the test. Ask a lot of questions before joining a group and find out from them how the process works and whether they are willing to take on the time to answer your questions.
Another great way to prepare for this type of exam is to invest in a good Calculus textbook. You should try and pick one that has the answer sheets from each section in it. This will make reviewing much easier as you can just refer to the answers. If the book that you chose does not have the answer sheets, then at least buy the next best thing.
On the day that you are scheduled to take the Calculus exam, try and relax as much as possible. Do not stress yourself out over this exam. If you are stressed out at any point during the exam, then chances are you will fail. Take plenty of water and have something to eat. These tips should help you get through the Calculus exam with relative ease.
