Practice as much as you can (via practice exams). Focus on the important details. You know the usual dealio. PS: When you say you haven't even touched your books, do you mean AT ALL?

uuuh yeah meaning that i haven't even looked at the first page.. but i usually always leave everything to about 1-2 days before a test. i did some practice ap chem exams without studying and got a 3..so if that's without studying i'm hoping with studying i can get a 5. but obvs i'm going to have to study like hella crazy

Yeah, most likely. I would suggest you get to it ASAP. The material isn't terribly complicated, but you do have to power through it. Beyond that; just stay calm in the exam and don't panic. I'm sure it'll be ok. Good luck! Btw, just some free advice, don't do this in university. You have no idea how many people get burned this way.

and yeah i've heard procrastination at uni is a big no no LOL

I didn't take it but some of my friends took it; our Chem 12 and AP Chem classes were the same, so that's how I know about the material, and that's the source of most of the advice I gave you.

Dont stress too much, I'm not using my AP psych mark anyways. I'm just gonna use my class mark.

I paid for it so might as well try my best. PS i just started studying psych yesterday so you're not the only one :)

Have Fun and GL on your Chem AP!

Also have to add my friend got a 1 on his AP and was still accepted to every uni he applied for LOL. You just dont have to send in your ap mark.

Did your friend do the exam for kicks lol i.e. did he go in cold with no prep?
