End of Semester and Exam Information for AP Psychology AB Students

How Should I Study for My Final Exam? (AP Psychology AB Students)

Your final exam is the same format as your unit m/c exams. There is no FRQ on your AP Psychology AB final.
  • Shmoop, Shmoop, Shmoop!!! If you have not already enrolled in Shmoop, now is the time to do so (see graphic below if you don't know how). You can take a diagnostic test in Shmoop to see where you really need to focus in your studies. Again, this is also a great tool to review for the AP exam in May.
  • Review all missed items from your unit m/c exams and FRQs. (See image below if you don't know how to do this.)
  • Check out the Review Padlet posted on the class bulletin board. There are many great study resources to choose from.
  • Check out the videos in the LINKS section of your course.
  • There are also three full length practice exams in the Quizzes section of your course you can take in preparation.
