(1) 2002 Released Exam-Multiple Choice Section (Grade it yourself and turn in your graded answer sheet)--Print two pages per sheet, because it's pretty long.
Answer Key to 2002 Released Exam
(2) 2010 Form B FRQ Section (You will be turning this in)
Scoring Guidelines to the 2010 Form B FRQ
(3) Grade yourself. Use this ROUGH general rule to assign yourself a grade of 3, 4, or 5:
--M/C score of 25-34=3; 35-49=4; 50 or more=5
--FRQ score: 1/3 of the points=3; 1/2 of the points or more=4 or 5 (you be the judge)
--Each section is weighted 50% so average your two scores together and then round to a whole number to get your overall score.

Optional Material (but HIGHLY SUGGESTED): (SINCE WE HAVE 3 WEEKS AFTER SPRING BREAK BEFORE THE AP EXAM, I WILL ASSIGN THESE OPTIONAL MATERIALS IN CLASS AS ASSIGNMENTS INSTEAD OF OPTIONAL SPRING BREAK MATERIAL SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT THESE OPTIONAL ASSIGNMENTS OVER SPRING BREAK)
Preparing for the M/C section
Common Topics that show up on the M/C section
Section One (see answer key)
Section Two (there is no answer key for this)Preparing for the FRQ section (common topics)
List of topics for each question in the FRQ section from 2002-2007 (don't print this; it's several pages)**Although completing Sections One and Two are not mandatory, could you please let me know if you did them? I want to do some data analysis comparing ap scores for students who completed these Sections to the students who did not. I'm hoping there is a correlation. In other words, I'm hoping these Sections are helpful :)
Suggested Spring Break Agenda to pace yourself:
Day 1: Take Diagnostic Test and grade yourself
Days 2-5 (or more, depending on how many questions you missed on the diagnostic test): Use the detailed answer key to review topics--use your prep books, old tests, notes, etc. to help you review.
Day 6: Read over Optional Materials
Day 7: Complete (optional assignments) Section One and Section Two
Day 8: Review more based on the Optional Materials you read over
Day 9: Self-administer the ap exam
Day 10: Grade your examAP Chemistry Exam is on May 7!!!Unit 9: Solutions**Time Frame: 3 Lectures => 3 daysGeneral Downloads:Unit 9 Downloads (compressed zip folder)Note: Exp 14 is in the zip folder but we will be skipping that labAgenda

This will allow you an okay pace so that you don't overwhelm yourself and cram right before the exam. Use your prep book to review, along with your notes, assignments, and lab reports, practice tests and online tutorials, etc. I am suggesting that you review one unit a day.

Therefore, your procedure sketches will only have to go up to step 12. I hope you guys will have time to finish the lab when you won't already be familiar with all of the steps.

You don't know how to do a problem like that yet so skip it.b)There is a question where you are given a Ka. You don't know how to do a problem like that either so skip it.c)There is a question dealing with boiling. Boiling is a phase change, right?
