    I only taking Macro and I am looking over the study guides my teacher gave us. My tip is when in doubt, graph it. It is easy to look at the graph and shift when needs to be shifted and then understand the effects of that.

    I plan on doing the Barron's practice tests, heck of a lot of FRQ, and review packets I typed up which essentially summarize the Princeton Review Economics textbook lol.

    I'm reviewing general concepts and equations. Then I'll do two MC tests and one FRQ.

    I got a question for people and yeah this might sound stupid but does it matter in the exam if you draw a line in a graph sloped or straight?

    Doesn't matter. If you used sloped or curve.
    And if you don't understand something, go to youtube and type in ACDC econ. The guy covers almost every topic. Each if his videos are 5 minutes or less. Mjmfoodie and khan academy also have good videos. I find Khan Academy to give too much useless info when it comes to econ.

    My study resources
    1 Notes taken from 5 steps to a 5
    2 ACDC econ guy
    3 5 steps to a 5 book
    4 Mjmfoodie
    5 random google search
    6 khan academy

    For practice
    College board posts the FRQs from every year online. Do them if you have the time. You can also find a few multiple choice tests online.

    The best thing you can do is be positive. If you start crying and say ***** it, it will be your fault if you don't get the score you want. Your in control! Don't let econ control you! Believe in yourself! Be positive!

    Thanks and if anyone needs the 2000 2005 or 2008 MC for Macro just message me, and in AP do you get subtracted points for a wrong answer like in the SAT2 ?

    There are no point deductions on AP exams. The Collegeboard eliminated the -.25 penalty for incorrect answers beginning with the May 2011 administration.

    How similar is Macro to Micro? I took Micro last year so I might've forgot a lot of material since then.

    it's different. not much alike. it's much more general and applies to an entire country as opposed to individual firms. the tests only share the basics really.

    I'm not worried for Macro, really. Most of it's common sense, and for the questions that aren't, just graph it out.

    Some of the FRQs can be confusing, though. Especially when you can't tell if said action affects AS, AD, or both.

    Lol I just finished it. Thought the multiple choice was hard (but I also really suck at multiple choice, like a lot) but free response was pretty easy. Anyone else?
