Less than 100 days. How long will you be able to stay for Wednesday's Exam Practice Session?

What else are you doing to get ready for the APGOPO Exam?

(oh, and Romney won Nevada).

I will continue to organize my notes based on court cases and important vocabulary. I will stay up to date with all current events and ALWAYS think of examples to connect what we are learning to the real world.

To review for the exam I will make a list of all the vocabulary words that were on the quizzes in class and add new ones that include major Supreme Court cases. I will continue to review my notes and old tests and study the questions I got wrong. If I don't understand something, I will look up examples.

Probs like 40 minutes. But I too will also continue to look over vocabulary and make connections to real life examples. Additionally, I will continue to be up to date on all news events the have to do with politics. Lastly, I believe that Romney will be the front runner for the rest of the campaign, but Gingrich will be great competition for him.

I will be able to stay as long as you allow us to. p.s. only answer the question, he is asking how you study or how you will study. He just wants to know how late you can stay.

I will not be able to stay becuase I have to work. But to study for the exam, I will be reviewing the flash cards that I been making every week as Mr. Bretzmann advised me to do.

I will be able to stay as long as time permits. In addition to the practice sessions, I will review the vocab on the quizzes and keep taking cornell notes along with studying them. Also, maybe take some practice tests online.

I live at the high school, so I will most likely be able to come in on Wednessdays for practice. I would love to spend some more bonding time with my favorite teacher. Therefore, I will stay after until you kick me out and tell me to find somewhere else to go. I definately need practice. That way, when I recieve the AP exam, I'll be able to recognize the questions because of the way they are. (ps- Don't you have collaboration on Wednessdays? It would probably be beneficial for you to avoid skipping the collaborations. For the sake of the students.)

awichgers said...

I forgot to say that I'll also take some practice tests online and review the vocab.

Chris DeWinter said...

I think that we should have exam practice on tuesday. To prepare for the AP test i will start to go through my vocabulary note cards and review my notes.

jboyle said...

I will be able to stay after for Wednesday exam practice sessions, and additionally I will continue to make note cards every week for the vocab quizzes and study those.I will also look over my notes and old tests.

Kelly M said...

I work on wednesday so i will not be able to attend the study session after school but i will keep preparing for the exam by reviewing old tests and studying flash cards.

J.Mason said...

I can stay until you have to go home. Study study study, and go over everything.

Jbandoszeski said...

For the exam review i will be able to stay for the whole time. Also for the exam i will continue to write up my vocabulary note cards and arrange my notebook for the final.

Mr. Bretzmann said...

I have to collaborate on Tuesdays. FYI.

KKotecki said...

I will be at the exam practice Wednesday for as long as necessary or until you kick us out because I probably don't know everything and really need practice. I will most likely look at the AP exam practice book that I picked up to help review as well as go over the notes and vocabulary from class.

aspone said...

That seems soon! But to review for the exam I will go through all of our vocabulary terms from our quizzes, except for the ones I already know. I will also go through the notes we take in class plus the ones we take from the book. I have kept all the old tests and highlighted the right answers. I can use these to help practice answering AP questions.

sli said...

If Wednesday's exam practice session is useful, I can stay as along as you leave. Also,I would review the notes that we take in class, make sure that i understand all the important cases, and do some practice in the Ap gopo exersice book.

JakobL said...

I'm sorry for my harsh words. It wasn't supposed to be an attack on anybody. That wasn't appropriate for a serious blog. The next Wednesday I'm probably not able to join the the Session because I will be auditioning for the spring play at Drama-Club.

JakobL said...

I review the vocabulary terms and prepare, study all the Supreme Court cases listed. I will also read news, watch news and try to build connections to context learned in class. I will also ask questions in class if I don't understand something fully.

PaulHurlbut said...

I will continue to organize my court cases and study them, continue to understand and comprehend my vocabulary based on what we learn in class. I also will be able to stay roughly a half an hour on Wednesday.

pliberski said...

I will most likely be unable to stay because I work on Wednesdays and won't have a ride home. Tuesday is better.
To prepare for the exam, I am going to watch West Wing.

Sfrasher said...

To review for the exam, I will be diligently studying my vocabulary notecards that I make weekly. I believe that this will be incredibly useful because I’ve heard from Mr. Bretzmann that the AP GOPO exam is basically a vocabulary test. I will also be studying the influential court cases. I believe that I can stay after on Wednesday.

Adam Joerres said...

After the last Wednesday session, I plan on trying to make all of them all the way through. They seem to be really beneficial. Along with Wednesday sessions, I will organize my notes, study court cases and always ask and write down connections between everything.

APrichard said...

I will use past tests we have received to review previous information from throughout the year. Also continue to review vocab words which i have written down upon note cards. The studying will also include taking the terms i have learned and applying them to current day scenarios to establish a clear understanding of the term. Finally i will require a higher learning of court cases and there interwoven nature throughout history.

Jegan said...

I will most likely not be attending any after school study parties due to the fact that i have to run everyday after school but to prepare i will continue to flash myself with vocab card and review my old test every once and a while.(congrats to Romney)

THaase said...

i think the exam practice sessions should rotate days of each week because certain days of the week i have to work and it will be tough to particiapte around my schedule but reviewing and makeing connections should help me to prepare for the ap exam.

Asalo said...

Like Egan, I probably will not be able to make many of these meetings because of running and Track. I will also continue to flash myself as another method for studying.

skerns said...

I will start making more note cards. I will read from the book every night. I can stay after for about an hour depending on if I have work.

jryan said...

I plan on continuing my reading and note taking of the chapters in the book as well as making flash cards for the vocab quizzes. Unfortunately, I am always working on Wednesdays which means I can never attend the practice sessions :( I guess I'll have to set something else up like coming in early.
