Mock AP exams

By | AP Biology

You will have two opportunities for mock AP exams.  The first is this Saturday from 10:30-3:30.  The second will be on Wednesday May 1st from 3:15-7.  They will be different practice exams that you will be able to take the test, score, and analyze the results.  You may attend either or both to help you prepare for the actual exam on Monday May 13th from 8-12.
