INTRODUCTION: If you find yourself reading this guide, you might fall under one of the categories: you thought this was a 5 Steps to a 5 guide(we're much better since we help you get a non-existent score), you think you can get a 6 on your AP Exams, you need help and this is shorter than reading your prep book. If you fall in one of these categories, you've come to the right place!
INTRODUCTION(condensed version): Does your AP student pack look like the one above?
Are you stressed out about test(s)?
Does the sample AP number label insert look like yours?
-If you answered yes to any of these questions, you've gone to the right place!
Step 1: For Starters...
If you read carefully, it details what to bring and if you read in between the lines, you will get a even better idea.
The image above is what I would recommend bringing to the exam.
!$%* ___PRO TIP#0___ *%$! - Always remember to bring more than necessary, after all, the more the merrier!
Step 2: Calculators
Step 3: Operate
INSTRUCTIONS- Start by getting the positive side of the battery (a-node as it is know in lie-men's terms) and using either the Knife or small screw driver head pry the label slowly off applying a slow but constant force on the label. After you work your way around (without cutting yourself), start peeling and use the needle-nose for more leverage.
Step 4: The 12.5% Rule
DISCLAIMER: TAKING APART THINGS THAT HAVE LABELS THAT TELL YOU TO NOT DO THAT IS DANGEROUS IF SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. I CLAIM NO RESPONSIBILITY TO ACTIONS THAT RESULT FROM READING THIS GUIDE. KEEP IT SAFE.
Step 5: The REAL Way to Do IT
As to recommendations to the test, here is what I do and recommend doing.
-Bring 2-3 sharpened pencils. Too many can cause mess, take space and even fluster you.
-Don't forget your ID or they will not let you in! Types of stuff people tend to bring includes: School ID, Drivers License, Passport
-Bring a sharpener
-Bring spare batteries if you think your current ones are near their death
-A watch that doesn't beep can be useful especially when you are far from the clocks.
-Do not waste your time taking the labels off the batteries.
-Do not cram, get a good 8+ hrs of sleep
-Reading before sleeping can help calm the mind, I personally prefer Calvin and Hobbes.
