AP Exam Test Preparation

Part of a rigorous high school schedule, AP courses offer students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of content and college readiness. With over thirty AP courses offered by the College Board, students have plenty of opportunities to shine. Based on student performance, many colleges offer course credit or advancement.

The AP Exam: Test Overview

  • There are over 30 AP courses offered by the College Board.
  • Students take AP exams in May and receive their scores in July.
  • Although a student does not need to be enrolled in an AP class to take the exam, research by The College Board shows that students who take the courses do better on the exams and are therefore more likely to earn AP credits.
  • AP exams are not directly related to college admissions. Advanced placement courses and high AP scores will look good on an application, but their purpose is to determine college credit or course placement.

At Carnegie Prep, we are committed to recognizing the potential of each student. We get to know students as individuals, building confidence and setting the stage for academic and personal success, in the classroom and on standardized tests. Teachers and tutors work on building students’ confidence and knowledge of key concepts and strategies as well as preparing for how to pace themselves on standardized tests. Using a team approach, we offer students the flexibility of one-to-one assistance and full courses, knowing that for many students a blended approach may work best. Read more about our approach.

I just wanted you to know the tutoring with Bruce is great and my daughter started the AP US History review class on Sunday and said it was fantastic. She also recommended the class to her friend from Rye who joined her and she too gave it great accolades.

Pam, I wanted to let you know that your approach to providing proofs was so instrumental that my son could not stop talking about it on our ride home. He indicated that he took the writing approach he learned from you and applied it not only to his AP Comp exam, but to all his other AP exams that required similar essays. No doubt that your assistance helped him achieve all 5’s on his tests.

I’d like to thank you again for teaching our class. It sounds impossible to effectively teach a class of exhausted high school students running on empty from a full school day and sports, but your class was very enjoyable and you kept us all awake! Thank you for giving me the tools to excel on the AP test.

Hi Matt. He scored a 5 for his AP Euro and is absolutely thrilled! As you might know, he retook this AP and made quite some sacrifices (didn’t join the tennis team at school) to be able to study all he could. I’m sure you were an essential part of this, he came home from your classes so inspired and saying that history could actually be so interesting!

My son scored an 800 on the SAT Math II and a 5 on the AP Stats! Thanks to Marshall and Sam for all of the test prep support!

After completing the APUSH Prep Course with Bruce, I got a 5!!!!! He was such an amazing teacher and made it possible for me to succeed on the test, when my classroom teacher only made it to the year 1900, leaving a gigantic gap in the AP Curriculum. I just wanted to relay my thanks and gratitude for all of his work to prepare me and everybody else!

Dear John, Thank you for your help in preparing for AP World History. The exam went very well, and I feel particularly good about my essays, which you taught me how to approach. I went in feeling much more confident because of your class. You made such a difference in my experience taking the first AP Exam of my academic career.

John, I wanted to thank you so much for helping our daughter! She got a 90 on her Iran/China test! She had one of the highest scores on the test! We just can’t thank you enough for all your help! It has really helped her and made a HUGE difference – she currently has an A in this class!

Once again, your instructors did a great job. C. took a Biology review course recently for her AP test and said Sarah was kind, engaging, and efficient – – all in all, a great teacher.
