AP Subjects Flashcards
Advanced Placement courses can provide some college students with a boost in their academic career – perhaps giving them academic credit for lower-level college classes - while challenging the student who is still in high school. These courses are not open to every student, but those who achieve certain scores on Advanced Placement subject placement tests may qualify to take these courses.
There are a wide range of Advanced Placement (AP) courses that students can take. AP courses are available in the arts (including studio art), mathematics, computer science, English, the sciences, history, social science, and world languages and culture. There is also an AP Capstone course that includes research and a seminar.
Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include thousands of online flashcards for a variety of AP subjects, including several levels of AP Physics, several levels of AP Calculus, AP World History, AP Comparative Government and Politics, AP Chinese, AP Spanish, AP European History, and AP Environmental Science, among others. Whether a student has just a few minutes to study or has several hours to devote to review of topics in a specific Advanced Placement subject, these flashcards can be a great help.
Depending on the specific academic topic, there may be flashcards that cover specific areas of academic subjects, like the Water and Carbon Flashcard subsection of the flashcard set for AP Biology, or flashcards that focus on passage content in the flashcard set for AP English Literature.
The content of the flashcards varies, depending on the specific subject that the card set covers. For example, in the flashcards for AP Macroeconomics, students may see a multiple choice question that asks for just a simple answer from one of four possible answers; the flashcards for AP Psychology may ask students to identify specific psychologists by their area of study or by a specific theory; and AP Art History cards may require users to identify an art movement by the themes associated with the specific artistic movement.
These flashcards contain questions that are similar to what students will find on advanced placement exams in various topics. The questions are most likely, not specific questions that one will find on an AP exam, but are meant to help students to reinforce their understanding and knowledge of specific topics.
Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools are a great option for students in Advanced Placement courses to take their studying to another level. Available online, the flashcards allow students to jump from topic to topic, even question to question without penalty. Students find out immediately whether their answer was right or wrong, and also get an explanation of why the correct answer is the correct answer.
In addition to the Flashcards for AP Subjects, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include nearly 100 Full-Length Practice Tests, thousands of Practice Tests, Questions of the Day, and an interactive syllabus called Learn By Concept. When students create an account with Varsity Tutors, they can track their progress with the various study tools, or even create their own flashcards for AP Subjects.
