Including 4 full length exams, structured and styled exactly like what you will find on the real test, this study guide is designed to increase and maximize scores for any student regardless of current subject knowledge and skills. Set your sights higher: You don’t have to be a prospective English major to perform well on the exam, and you don’t even have to be a great English student. The most important aspect to bear in mind is that you must prepare yourself for the test. That doesn't just mean studying—although that doesn’t hurt. You need to be as familiar as possible with every single aspect of how this test is going to go down. Think about it: you only have three hours to earn an entire semester’s worth of college credit; do you really want to waste those hours cracking the code on directions and what the questions are really asking? This guide isn’t your typical “here’s what you need to know for your test” book. You’ve already seen those and, honestly, what purpose have they served other than re-hashing every English and Language Arts lesson you’ve had since the sixth grade? This book won't be going over everything your AP Literature teacher is already striving hard to reiterate to you each day, so don’t plan on learning how to write a thesis statement again or how to analyze a passage for tone. No, this book is going to teach you how to study and prepare for the test. That means what to study, as well as how to study - the method behind the madness, if you will. Finally, with four full-length sample AP Literature tests allow you to practice for the examination and hone your skills, providing you with an introduction to the types of questions you can expect on the test.
