AP Literature Reading Tips
We encourage you to to read as much as you can before the AP test. Enhancing your reading comprehension is one of the best ways to improve your test performance. For those with super busy schedules next year, bolstering your reading skills will help you especially. Attached is a list of the top texts used on the test and suggested by the AP College Board. Enjoy!
It's also helpful for the AP Lit. test to have a sense of major literary periods -- you will be better able to contextualize your essays when you know what important periods influence the works you read.
