MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (April 9, 2012) – With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, here at Shmoop we have a lot to celebrate. Like getting all you cerebritos ready for the next AP Spanish Language and AP Spanish Literature exams (right around the corner on May 8th and 18th, respectively, but no pressure…none…at all). So check out some test practice that won’t make you snooze. We invite you to kick your shoes off and dive in!
We believe that test prep should be: a) boring; b) snooze-button boring; c) texting-and-on-facebook-boring; or d) fun and fast-paced. If you guessed d, you passed! Pretty easy so far, no?
Key points of our spicy linguistic test prep journey:
- Take advantage of examples that (we’re pretty sure) you won’t find anywhere else. Let’s see, how to write an essay. Step 1: Build your own Frankenstein monster. Step 2: Capture King Kong. Trust us, it’s good.
- We’ve also tossed in, just for fun, hundreds of explanations, examples and exercises on every section and type of question that you need to know for the exams.
- The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing, the skies are cloudless and blue…and you’re stuck indoors, getting ready to take AP exams. We bet you could think of at least 12 things you’d rather be doing right now. We’ve thought of and included at least 213: 4 Full-Length Timed AP Spanish Language and Literature Practice Tests, 139 Practice Problems (with on-the-spot feedback and explanations), and 70 additional Grammar Problems (also with explanations).
- Can you hear me now? Complete coverage. We will help you take down each and every section of both exams – 7 for Language and 4 for Literature – multiple choice, essays and speaking. We’ve also put together a handy grammar review that covers 15 categories, to up your confidence and content levels in a jiffy. Because we would never send you to read, write or chat it up at the battle of wits unarmed.
- Flex to the max. This is your to-do list as you prep for your exams. Check off the boxes in our suggested order. Or be a rebel and jump around. It’s your call. You can retake sections to try to improve your understanding and final scores. Or your Shmoints for prize winning purposes too!
