When Should I Start Studying for AP Exams?

Like any exam, it’s best to start early. We recommend you start studying for your AP exams at least 1.5 months in advance. This will give you ample time to review your notes, ask for help, and feel confident when you take the test. 


A Pro Tip for AP exams: Preparing for the SAT improves your AP exam score by 90%.


5 Ways to Relax Before an Exam

Like finals, exams can be stressful. If you feel anxious before your AP exam, don’t worry. You’re not the only one! Try out these five tips to manage stress before an exam. 


    1. Start Studying Early

Even though it’s tempting to procrastinate, make every effort not to. Set alarms in your phone to remind you to start studying early, at least a couple of weeks before your AP exam date. 

    2. Stay Active

Exercise releases endorphins, which help you feel on top of the world! Destress by getting regular exercise, even if it’s just daily walk in the park. 

    3. Ask for Help

Have trouble understanding a certain concept? Can’t find information online? Use your support system. Study with friends, consult with your academic advisor, and ask for help when you need it. 

    4. Get Organized

Clutter makes everything more stressful. Clean up your desk, organize your binders and papers, and create a calm environment for you to feel at ease while studying!

    5. Lay Off the Phone

These days, it’s easy to scroll endlessly on social media. But that will stress you out even more before an exam. You’ll waste time when you could be studying and then feel low about yourself for letting it happen! Set your phone on “Do not disturb,” or if you have to, lock it in a drawer while you study!



Your AP exam date is still a little while away. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start studying now! Make sure you note the AP testing 2022 dates above so that you’re prepared when the time comes.
