Get those study guides at any barnes and nobel or Borders or some place like that. They have 'real tests' that you can practice off of.

First of all, congratulations on setting a goal for yourself to aim for a 5 on your upcoming AP test! It's great to see that you are determined to do well, despite your grade in the class.

To prepare for your AP test, it's important to focus on both content review and test-taking strategies.

In addition to content review, it's also important to practice test-taking strategies. This can include familiarizing yourself with the format and types of questions on the AP test, as well as practicing with past AP exams or practice tests. This will help you become more comfortable with the test and improve your time management skills.

Lastly, make sure to take care of yourself in the weeks leading up to the test. Get enough rest, eat well, and stay hydrated. Taking care of your physical and mental well-being will help you stay focused and perform at your best on test day.
