AP® exam week can leave you feeling like a hamster that's had its feet hot-glued to an exercise wheel. So...how do you make it through the AP week coming up? Our suggestion: treat your studying like it's a real job.
Uh, no, we're not going to pay you to study. What we mean is that you should approach studying the same way most productive employees approach their work. In 2014, a study found that people are most productive when they work for 52 minutes and then take a 17-minute break. (Talk about specific.)
Drawing a blank on what to do during your breaks? We came up with ideas for productive(ish) 17-minute distractions for each of the remaining APs.
- Introduction to Comparative Politics video
- AP World History
- AP Statistics Playlist
- AP Human Geography Intro video
- AP Microeconomics Basic Concepts video
Use your break time wisely. You have fifty-two minutes until the next one.
