If you haven't already met our good friend Studying, you will meet him this year. He kinda takes up all of your time and doesn't care whether you are having fun. However, you can make him useful every #APWeekend, a term you will become familiar with later. There are many different ways to study that can be effective for one and useless for another. I can only say what helps me, which is Quizlet flashcards (it's better if they're your own), podcasts/lectures, and simply writing things on paper. Also, as much as I wanted to jam while studying, I found I had to read words multiple times in order to comprehend. This is because I was also comprehending the lyrics. So, if you like bands cool enough to have some instrumental songs, go with that.
