We are 21 days away from you taking the AP US Government exam. In preparation for this test, I recommend that you study 30 minutes a day for the next 21 days. During the semester, I’ve suggested to you that you spread out your studying, completing 15-20 minutes per night. This is known as spaced practice. Research shows that students who use spaced practice, as opposed to cramming for a test a day or two before the test, perform better on their test.

Over the next 21 days, I’ll be emailing reminders to help keep you on track with your preparation.  I’ll be giving you specific advice on study options each day. You can choose to study what I suggest, or select your own study options, but you should reserve 30 minutes each day for AP Government studying. If you study for 30 minutes each day for the next 30 days, you should easily earn a passing score (3, 4, or 5) on the AP US Government exam.
