Having a set of resources you can confide in can be extremely helpful when it is time to prepare for quizzes, tests, and final exams. It is arguably even more important knowing how to use these resources. Below is a compilation of the apps, websites, books, that helped me through AP Environmental Science (APES).
AP Student - AP Daily Videos
AP Daily Videos are provided by the College Board in AP Classroom. Students are able to access whichever subjects they are enrolled in. This tool is especially helpful because at the end of each topic, there are questions either in the form of MCQ or FRQ for APES. This allows you to anticipate the types of questions being asked and their topics.
Here is a link on how to access AP Daily Videos: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/access-your-ap-resources/ap-daily
AP Student - Progress Checks
Ask your teachers to open up ‘Progress Checks’ at the end of each unit to check your understanding. It’s important to fill in these gaps ahead of time so that you are fully prepared and can build a good foundation for the final exams.
There are many types of review books you can buy, but the one I recommend is Princeton Review’s AP Environmental Science (the edition does not matter because there are likely very minor changes each year). It has one diagnostic and two practice tests with plenty of unit reviews and key concepts within. There is a good amount of space in the margin to take brief notes as well.
Simple Studies’ Study Guides
APES content condensed in text! Simple Studies offers study guides for APES (alongside many other subjects) which can easily be accessed through this link: https://www.simplestudies.org/studyguides/ap-environmental-science
I strongly recommend visualizing your APES content, diagrams are much easier to recall.
Some contentyou could draw and label:
→ food chains
→ nitrogen cycle
→ survivorship curves
