When I took AP English Language and Composition as a sophomore in 2013-2014, I aced the essays every time, but I struggled with critical reading, because to me, all the answers “sounded right.” Luckily, my teacher knew what she was doing. She drilled our class relentlessly; at one point, I think we were writing an essay every week and practicing multiple choice every day.

The AP English Language and Composition exam consists of a multiple choice section and a free-response section. You will have 60 minutes to answer the multiple choice questions. Then you will have a 15 minute reading period to read the sources for the synthesis essay and to plan your response. You are then given 120 minutes to write your essays.
