AP Exams begin right after the break on May 2nd! For AP students, this makes for a rather tricky spring break– it’s tough to relax with a big exam right around the corner.

Our advice is to make a schedule for this week off, so students can clearly separate when it’s time to study and when it’s time to unwind. And of course, we’d love to see you at the end of the break at our AP Review class!

Long Island Regents Prep’s AP Review classes are designed to provide students extra help as they get closer to exam day. Our AP Review is scheduled for May 1st and May 7th, the weekends before the exams.

AP Review Classes

Advanced Placement courses are a great way to help students get a head start on college!

These courses give students a preview of the rigor of coursework they will face in college, but with the careful guidance and attention provided in high school. AP courses also help solidify a college application by demonstrating a student’s ability to handle difficult material and willingness to take on academic challenges.

Finally, AP courses often qualify for college credit! Of course, earning college credit largely depends on the student’s score on the AP exam.

Click here to see what scores are required to earn course credit at various colleges.

Long Island Regents Prep’s AP Review classes can help students earn that credit. Our teachers have been preparing students for the AP exams for years, and they know exactly what to expect from this year’s tests!

Over the past decade, the number of students taking AP exams has nearly doubled. Student participation in the Advanced Placement program has increased in every subject across every demographic. Simply put, students are taking more AP exams in an effort to prepare for and gain admission to selective colleges. According to the College Board, “a broader, more diverse group of students has benefited from expanded access to Advanced Placement. In addition, more students than ever before are succeeding on AP Exams…. Since 2003, there has been a 7.9 point increase in the percentage of U.S. public high school graduates scoring a 3 or higher on an AP Exam, with 17 states exceeding the national average for this percentage change.” AP courses not only provide students with a more rigorous curriculum, but they allow students the potential to earn college credits.

Long Island Regents Prep will once again offer AP Review Classes at Farmingdale State College. All AP review courses are developed and taught by experienced NYS-certified teachers. This year’s courses will be held on May 3rd and May 9th. To register for classes, visit our website. For your own reference, below is the 2015 AP Exam Schedule. Good luck!

Long Island Regents Prep Announces 2015 Regents, AP, and SAT Review Classes

Long Island Regents Prep, which offers Regents, Advanced Placement, and SAT review classes in all major subjects, has announced its 2015 course schedule. Their courses are designed and taught by certified and experienced teachers who understand how to prepare students for their exams and how to reduce the anxiety that comes along with high-stakes testing.

Over the past five years, Long Island Regents Prep has helped nearly 2,000 students in New York prepare for their Regents, AP, and SAT exams. In other words, their teachers have provided approximately 12,000 hours of class instruction. Because Long Island Regents Prep offers exceptional test preparation, their course registrations continue to grow at rate of almost 200% each year, largely due to word-of-mouth recommendations.

Since 2009, Long Island Regents Prep has offered one-day Regents review courses for each of the major subjects, including Living Environment, Earth Science, Chemistry, Physics, Global History and Geography, United States History and Government, Integrated Algebra, Algebra 2/Trigonometry, and Geometry. Each class covers essential subject matter, offers test-taking strategies, and reviews practice Regents questions.

In 2013, Long Island Regents Prep decided to expand its course selection and begin offering Advanced Placement review classes in AP United States History, AP World History, AP European History, AP US Government and Politics, AP Psychology, AP Calculus AB, AP Biology, AP Physics B, AP Chemistry, and AP Environmental Science.

Last season, Long Island Regents Prep introduced SAT Crash Courses, one-day review classes offered the weekend before each spring SAT exam. There are three courses to chose from: SAT Critical Reading/Writing, SAT Math, and SAT Math/Critical Reading. All SAT Crash Courses will be taught by certified teachers who attended elite universities and excelled on their standardized exams. In addition, courses will include a custom SAT workbook that students will use during the class and bring home with them.

Long Island Regents Prep Long Island Regents Prep was founded in 2009 by Michael Graziosi, Brad Seidman, and Dr. Dennis Urban, full-time social studies teachers on Long Island, New York. After preparing hundreds of their own students for NY State Regents Exams and AP Exams, they realized that students sometimes needed review beyond what was offered in the classroom. So they have created clear, concise, six-hour review courses that provide students with the content, skills, and confidence they need to excel on their standardized exams. Finally, all classes are taught by experienced, highly-qualified, New York State-certified teachers in comfortable, state-of-the-art classrooms on the campus of Farmingdale State College, a State University of New York (SUNY) institution of higher learning. Students can register online quickly, easily, and securely by visiting http://liregentsprep.wpengine.com.

Enrollment in Advanced Placement Courses Continues to Rise

Springtime is nearly upon us, and many high school seniors are eagerly awaiting news from colleges regarding admissions and financial aid.  High school students aiming for admission into elite colleges often enroll in Advanced Placement courses with the hope of burnishing their transcripts and applications, preparing for rigorous college-level coursework, and earning college credit for passing scores on the A.P. exams.  Recently, however, colleges and universities have begun reconsidering whether to give credits for Advanced Placement courses.  For example, earlier this year, Dartmouth College announced that it would no longer give college credit for high scores on Advanced Placement exams.  According to the New York Times, this change—a response to the concern that high school A.P. classes “are not as rigorous as college courses”—will begin with the class of 2018, affecting those who graduate high school next year.
Not unexpectedly, the College Board has decried this decision, maintaining that Advanced Placement courses expose students to, and thus prepare them for, college-level work.  According to the College Board’s recent AP Report to the Nation, “more high school graduates are participating—and succeeding—in college-level AP courses and exams than ever before.” College Board president David Coleman said, “By exposing students to college-level work while still in high school, Advanced Placement dramatically improves college completion rates,” and he applauded educators who have worked to bring Advanced Placement courses to more students in more schools around the country.  Findings from the report indicated,
·      The number of high school graduates taking AP Exams increased to 954,070, (32.4%), up from 904,794 (30.2%) among the class of 2011 and 471,404 (18.0%) in 2002 among the class of 2002.
·      The number of high school graduates scoring a 3 or higher increased to 573,472 (19.5%), up from 541,000 (18.1%) among the class of 2011 and 305,098 (11.6%) among the class of 2002.
Whether these numbers represent better preparation for college and the workplace is, of course, up for debate, but they do signal a clear rise in the importance of Advanced Placement courses at the high-school level, even if colleges doubt the academic rigor of such courses.
In New York State, the statistics mirror the national trends, as more students continue to enroll and succeed in Advanced Placement Exams.  That is why Long Island Regents Prep is now offering one-day Advanced Placement Review Courses at Farmingdale State College on May 5, 2013.  Visit liregentsprep.wpengine.comfor more information and to register for courses.
