How to Be Successful
It's easy to be successful in GoPO, honestly. Even if you get a 2 on the AP exam, those scores won't affect your grade because they don't come in until July. Just do the homework, listen in class, and you'll come fresh out of GoPo with a 5.0 GPA.
In order to comprehend what is happening in class, you need to do the homework and reading the night before, especially before review mode (more on that later). The textbook reads like a magazine and is actually really interesting. Take good notes, and you will be A-Okay (also- you will get so much better at taking notes as the year goes on. This helps so much for your other classes).
