AP Exam Updates & Resources

  • AP CS Exam Date Reminder: May 15 @ 4pm
  • Read the AP Exam Testing Guide
    • This comprehensive testing guide that details everything!
  • Interactive Exam Simulation
  • College Board's AP CS Youtube Playlist
    • There will be practice exam questions shown and reviewed the week of 5/4/20
    • Please note that the exam will only test Topics 1 - 7 (the playlist goes through topics 7, 9, 10 for your future knowledge)
  • What students need on exam day
    • Make sure you go through the checklist
  • Note that there will be 3 options to submit your responses to the exam: copy-paste, upload/attach a file, upload a handwritten image. I believe that copy-paste will be the fastest, safest solution, so you'll want to practice typing your responses in a separate editor
  • I highly discourage using repl.it as your editor for the AP exam. It relies on the internet and has periodic hiccups and delays. Practice typing FRQs using another text editor or development environment that is on your computer (e.g. NetBeans, eclipse)
  • The timing constraints are intentional such that spending time looking stuff up will likely hurt your response's completeness
  • AP's Java Quick Reference
