Apr 3 and 5 - Finals (Part 1 and 2)

This week will be challenging, yet it is the culmination of all your hard work. I am confident that the experience will be worth while and very enlightening. I hope that you come out motivated. If you do well, you know that what you are doing works and that the real AP test will be easy. If you fall flat, then it is a time to reform your study technique and ensure that history doesn't repeat itself!

Best of luck,
