For those who enjoy English and the intricacies of the language, there is a great course offered by the College Board. The Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition course, is a great choice for students who love reading and exploring as well as analysing the themes, genres and motifs in literature from the past as well as present. |
This course is a great choice for high school students, who wish to continue with English literature in college. Since this course is designed to be a little difficult, it prepares students for the tougher levels in college. This is why the AP English Literature exam is also not the easiest nut to crack. However, with a book like 5 Steps to a 5 AP English Literature 2014-2015, things should become a little more smooth sailing.
The AP English Literature 2014 – 2015 eBook is a great guide for students, who wish to have a proper plan for preparation in place, even before they start tackling the curriculum. The book has a five pronged approach, which includes study schedules, diagnostic exams, strategies as well as practice exams. The very first step in the book is creating a study schedule that is just right for each student. Since the requirements for each student might vary from the other, there are three types of schedules in the book.
Before one can actually get into the complete study mode, it is important for a student to know how much they already know and how intensively they need to prepare. It is for this very purpose that the book has a diagnostic exam, which allows students to gauge for themselves, where exactly they stand, in terms of the syllabus. Once they have understood how much preparation they are going to need, they can get into the actual curriculum.
The book is filled with all the information a student prepping for the AP English Literature exam might need. This includes all the concepts, terms and other aspects of the exam, such as comprehension and analysis. The exam has a suggested reading list, which has been issued by the College Board. This list includes drama, fiction, poetry and essays, all of which are sections that are covered in this book. Once students feel that they have done sufficient preparation, they can try their hand at two sample tests. These tests are created on the exact same lines as the actual AP exam.
The authors of this book are Estelle M. Rankin and Barbara L. Murphy, both of whom have been associated with teaching English Literature for over two decades. While Rankin has received the AP Literature Teacher of the Year award, from the College Board and the Long Island Teacher of the Year award, Murphy has been an AP reader for about twenty years. In addition, she has also been a consultant on the AP English Language and Composition division and the Building for Success division, for the College Board.
