Primary Benefit: College Preparation

Experience a college-level test

The intensity of college exams catches far too many freshmen by surprise:

“Students who have prepared for and taken the AP Exams adapt more easily to taking college essay exams, and are especially skilled in including a thesis and a well-developed argument. They are also less intimidated by sophisticated, college-level multiple-choice questions that seek to test understanding over memorization.”

—Robert Blackey, Professor of HistoryCSU, San Bernardino
