Line 1: Line 1:
-The exam will be in the Library and Library Lab (301). Since May 14 is a Friday Schedule, it will only be a 60 minute exam. It is a cumulative exam that covers the [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.MagpieLab|Magpie Chat-bot Lab]], [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.PictureLab|Picture Lab]], [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.ElevensLab|Elevens Lab]], The Java Methods Book  and chapters 2 to 5 of the eimacs "Be Prepared for he AP Exam" The 5 practice tests in your emacs account are an excellent way to prepare yourself.+The exam is a cumulative exam that covers the entire course from the summer assignment until Unit 10 of the College Board's Course and Exam Description ([[https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap-computer-science-a-course-and-exam-description.pdf?course=ap-computer-science-a|CED]])
  
-Another good way to review the free response questions is [[https://mathorama.com/wiki/doku.php?id=starter_code_for_old_ap_questions|past AP Questions]] like [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.APQuestionScrambleWord|ScrambleWord]], the homework problems from [[https://secure-media.collegeboard.org/apc/ap_frq_computerscience_12.pdf| 2012]], [[https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/pdf/ap18-frq-computer-science-a.pdf?course=ap-computer-science-a|2018]],  and the others from [[https://mathorama.com/wiki/doku.php?id=starter_code_for_old_ap_questions|past years]].  +{{::screen_shot_2021-03-07_at_8.05.53_am.png?400|}}
  
-Yet another good way to review the multiple choice is [[https://codingbat.com/java]] and to  go back and review the multiple choice questions at [[http://eimacs.com]] and statements written in bold print in the text.  To review the free response, be sure to consult the [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.StudyGuideForChapter2|Chapter 2 Study Guide]] and the  [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.StudyGuideForChapter3|Chapter 3 Study Guide]].  Don't forget that you don't need a computer to practice writing code at [[http://codingbat.cs.vt.edu/codingbat/java|javabat.com]].  The free response will emphasize writing methods that deal with int, double, and String and arrays of int, double, and String that might need a loop, as well as making classes and implementing interfaces.  Practice writing loops, methods, and class declarations like the ones mentioned on the [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.StudyGuideForChapter2|Chapter 2 Study Guide]], [[http://apcs.mathorama.com/index.php?n=Main.Semester1FinalStudyGuide|Semester 1 Study Guide]]  and [[http://codingbat.cs.vt.edu/codingbat/java| javabat]] exercises.+It is a good idea to review the questions and the other Labs we have done throughout the yearThere will be 60 minutes to answer 24 multiple choice questionsand 20 minutes to answer 1 free response question  (the exam category is worth 20% of your grade, and is the last chance to do better than your Qtr 3 Exam in this category)
  
-The College Board has posted free response questions for you to practice with [[http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/exam/exam_information/2000.html|here]]  +A good way to review the multiple choice is reviewing Questions from previous Progress checks at [[https://myap.collegeboard.orgAP Classroom]], and previous Chapter Tests (this year they were returned by e-mail) or  [[https://csawesome.runestone.academy/runestone/books/published/csawesome/index.html#google_vignette|Chapter 13 of Java2020-SFHS]]
-Some elegant solutions to these are at [[http://www.skylit.com/beprepared/fr.html|Skylit]], the book publisher of our textbook. If your overall Practice Exam is better then the score on this exam, you will receive the the Practice Exam score for the score of your Semester 2 Exam.+
  
 +A good way to review the free response questions is [[https://mathorama.com/wiki/doku.php?id=starter_code_for_old_ap_questions|past AP Questions @mathorama]] like we have been doing in class and homework, or [[https://csawesome.runestone.academy/runestone/books/published/csawesome/index.html#google_vignette|Chapter 14-15 of Java2020-SFHS]].  Don't forget that you don't need a computer to practice writing code at [[http://codingbat.cs.vt.edu/codingbat/java|javabat.com]].
