English Comprehensions For Grade 7

Andrea Said:

How can you study for the AP English Language Exam?

Well, the answerers above this describe the format, although I found that the format of these tests are irrelevant- you are going to take whatever it is anyway.

I wouldn't worry too much about the 'grammatical terms' either. Just make sure you know the basics (metaphor, simile, personification, etc) as for the more complicated terms, just leave those questions blank. When I took this test last year, they didn't ask too many questions on this anyway... It was more like "the tone of the passage is...." or "the meaning of this is..." you get the idea.

And as for your analysis skills, I don't think you can do much in the next few days to improve them. But long term (assuming that you will eventually take an english/history class in college), you need to read difficult books. There really isn't a shortcut.

What I would do is review the books that you did read (make sure you memorize the title/author/main characters) - these make great examples and help your essay. Review the major themes of these books too... I would only do this for about 3 or 4 books (you don't have to go overboard on this).

Look at it this way, you if you get around half of the multiple choice questions right AND write something for your essays (lets say you make 4's on them) you will still walk away with at least a three. If you are worried about a 7 vs a 9 essay, you shouldn't worry about your grade haha (you would be one of the kids making a 4 or 5).

Other than that, my advice is to review your books and themes, and relax.
