1. We know from psychology research that people tend to remember the first and last thing they see or read. Thus, it is good to take frequent breaks so you have more firsts and lasts to remember!
    I always found it useful to study for about 50 minutes and then take a brief break (5-10 minutes) before studying again.

  2. We saw my son’s AP History teacher at Back to School last night. She told us the students do much better if they read every single day in small chunks. She said for history, there’s a lot to digest. She also overprepares them so they feel like the actual exam is pretty easy.

    She also mentioned that the College Board is changing the exam format.
