APUSH students practice for upcoming exam


As the AP testing season approaches, AP United States History students take a three and a half hour practice test, Feb. 10, to prepare for their upcoming AP exam, May 6.

[/media-credit] Daman Dhillon, ’23, participates in APUSH practice exam, Feb, 10.

Teacher Kori James has seen the benefits of practicing ahead of the big day.

“There is a lot of anxiety that goes into test day, ” James said. “When you can remove the element of the unknown it helps reduce that stress. One of the biggest  concerns my students have, other than remembering content, is having enough time to finish the four sections. Practice usually reassures them of this.”
