Allow me to once more repeat myself about the AP exam

Many readers here are involved in preparations for the Advanced Placement exam which students will take on Monday, May 4. Good luck.

Here is a bit of my advice from a couple years ago and a link to the complete comment.

Back in December 2006 I offered this observation,"The key to 'doing what you're asked to do' in the AP FRQs is to pay attention to the verbs. I think it's the natural tendency when we're confronted with exam questions to focus on the nouns, i.e. what the question is about. But doing what you're asked to do with those topics is vital for success."

More old advice that's still important.
