I am not taking AP English this year, but I plan on taking the test. That plan has worked out for me pretty well in the past.

I bought an AP study guide to help prepare. I haven't taken the test yet, so I don't know how useful it is. The study guides use questions from previous years though so I imagine that they would give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. Head to your library and check out a couple of study guides from different publishers to see which one you like the best.

Which AP English are you in? Lit/comp or lang/comp?

I took the lang/comp last year, the muliple choice with the reading prompt were brutal, the essays were alright, there is a synthesis essay, kind of like DBQ's from the APUSH exams. The lit/comp exam I'm not sure about, I'm taking that one in June.

I took ap english lang / comp last year
and it was fairly alright, a lot of reading of course , i think the multiple choice questions
were hard for me but my essays were pretty okay.

practice throughout the year on developing your writing skills especially for this test;
andd i think for the multiple choice questions, its just best to go through past exams and practice with those. really know your rhetorical strategies!

I took English Language last year. You have to now how to analyze and annotate information. Also, make sure you know lots of literary terms; you should also heighten your vocabulary skills.

What are some of the difference between lit/lan?

How difficult is it compared to CR section in SAT, or Literature in SAT2?

I took the AP English Language and Composition test as junior and received a 3. The test is composed of multiple choice and writing. Honestly, if you are a good writer you should take this class. But, otherwise don't waste your time in this class because writing is very important.

I really do not know a lot about the AP English exam. For me, If i simultaneously learn four English skills, i think i am a bit accustomed to the exam.

I am taking AP class in the school, and took test last year.
This test is toughest exam ever to get higher score.
Actually, I got a 2 from this test. It is overloaded work to me, because I am an international student.
But, If you think that you like English subject or get a good grade in your AP class, you will be fine to get a good grade : )

Cheer up!

AP Tests requires preparation and time, although i only spent a moth studying my History one, but i still advise you to read prep books several months in advance.
