What are AP Exams?
The term AP, or Advanced Placement, refers to both AP classes and AP tests. You can typically take as many AP classes as you wish (although your high school may have some restrictions).
When you sign up for AP classes, you demonstrate to everyone that you are not afraid of a challenge. If, however, you don’t feel completely confident about the material covered in the AP class, you can prepare for the AP Tests by studying independently outside of school, such as with a tutor.
Livius Prep offers support for both AP courses and AP tests. AP class tutoring is typically done over an entire school year but can also be done over a short period, such as when challenging assignments come up. AP test prep typically runs for two months but can vary based on individual needs.
About AP Math
AP Calculus AB: The AP Calculus AB class is roughly equivalent to a first semester college calculus class and is traditionally taken after pre-calculus. It covers topics such as concepts and skills of limits, derivatives, definite integrals, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
The corresponding AP Calculus AB Exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes long. A Multiple Choice section lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes and consists of 45 questions divided into calculator and no calculator sections, and a Free Response section which lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and consists of 6 questions divided into calculator and no calculator sections.
AP Calculus BC: The AP Calculus BC class is roughly equivalent to both first and second semester college calculus classes. It extends the content learned in AB to different types of equations (polar, parametric, vector-valued) and introduces the topic of sequences and series.
The corresponding AP Calculus BC Exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes long. A Multiple Choice section lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes and consists of 45 questions divided into calculator and no calculator sections, and a Free Response section which lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and consists of 6 questions divided into calculator and no calculator sections.
