Although we have decided to cancel our AP Review Classes this year due to Covid-19, we at Long Island Regents Prep want to provide our students with the best available resources to prepare for the upcoming exams. Many valuable online resources are freely available to students. Here are a few resources that we reviewed:
College Board Updates for Students – First and foremost, students should regularly check the College Board website for news and updates. On April 3, students will be able to find the two exam date options on this site. In addition, the College Board offers daily livestream courses broken down into key topic areas. Each online lesson is recorded for students who miss the live class.
Khan Academy – Like the College Board, the Khan Academy provides online lectures for all AP courses. The courses are broken down into more detailed topics and each key area includes a practice quiz. The website is full of visuals and allows students to keep track of their progress.
Kaplan Free AP Practice – Students can access unit outlines and test-taking tips. The site also includes support for the free-response questions, which will be the focus of most of the revised AP exams. Kaplan is currently offering one month of free access, too.
Varsity Tutors – The free testing system is available for students to test their knowledge in each subject area. There are multiple free exams available and each is rated by the level of difficulty to allow students to track their progress. The website also includes flashcards and other valuable test prep resources.
AP Study Notes – Students studying AP courses in the humanities (English and social studies) can access free exams, sample essays, course/topic outlines, and key terms. The website is easy to navigate and registration is not required.
Some of the other websites with free AP Exam resources include:
– CrackAP.com – https://www.crackap.com/
– APPracticeExams.com – https://www.appracticeexams.com/
– Albert.io – https://www.albert.io/solutions-covid-19-distance-learning
While none of these sites can replace face-to-face instruction, they are wonderful alternatives during this prolonged closure. As always, we are here to answer any of the questions of our customers.
