Albert.io’s Ultimate Spanish Grammar Review Either your school’s AP Spanish textbook or a review guide. The most popular guides are The Princeton Review and Barron’s. Use this for extra practice on any grammar topics that confuse you. How to use this Plan Try to spend at least 1-2 hours a day using this AP Spanish Language study guide to prepare for the exam. Remember, the more time you spend reviewing, the more likely you are to get the score you want on this challenging exam. Make sure you take breaks though; it’s important not to burn yourself out because that could work against you. A common time management technique that works for a lot of people is the Pomodoro technique where you take a 5 minute break for every 25 minutes you work. Try some different time management techniques to see what works best for you. Structure of this Study Schedule Week One is focused on learning what the exam covers and also includes an intensive grammar review with a few different topics per day. Review resources will be provided, but this is a great place to utilize your textbook or other review books for extra practice.

One-Month AP Spanish Language Study Guide Cont. 113 Interested in an Albert license? E-mail us at [email protected] Weeks Two through Four are primarily practice on multiple choice and frq responses for each of the 6 central themes. Remember, practice is the best way to study for a performance based exam like AP Spanish, so give these weeks your all. There are also a few things you should do every day to help prepare for the exam. Spend 15-30 minutes a day doing these key activities: 1. Listen to Spanish every day. Use the news resource listed under materials, or any other resources you can find, to gain exposure to the language. On most days, this will be included in the schedule, but if not, recommended sources will be given. Remember, since a major part of the exam is listening and reading comprehension, repeated exposure to the language can be the best way to prepare you, besides grammar practice. 2. Learn 7 new vocabulary words. Start with Albert.io’s Top 50 Words to Know for the AP Spanish Exam, then focus on vocabulary words you have trouble with. Make flashcards either on paper or with an app to help you master these words. Also focus on Angelisimos , words that sound like they are Spanish, but aren’t (like embarazada). Try to go back and review all your flashcards often. 3. Focus on word gender and accents, but not stress over them. These are definitely important for fluency in Spanish, but exam graders do not expect you to be perfect, and it is still possible to score well with a few missing accent marks or misplaced gender pronouns. However, for every new vocabulary word you learn, make sure to write the gender pronoun and correct accent marks on your flashcard.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
