(NAPSI)—There’s good news for students preparing for Advanced Placement (AP) exams. A well-known study system is keeping pace with the latest changes in technology and, as a result, it’s now possible for students to study on the platform of their choice.
The last decade has seen significant changes in the way high school students study and prepare for exams, particularly in the technology they use. Increasingly, laptops, tablets and other digital devices are what students prefer to use in order to access information, so it makes sense that a study program designed to meet students’ needs would use the technology they prefer.
That’s why McGraw-Hill Education is introducing a unique cross-platform system that enables students to access all the publisher’s test prep content for each AP exam on the platform they choose, including Apple iOS devices, Android (including the Kindle Fire and Nook), BlackBerry and Netbooks. Anywhere and any time they want to study, students now have the choice of print, online or a mobile device. This new system also includes many innovative features to help students study smarter, such as a personalized study plan with daily goals, powerful analytics to help students chart their progress, flash cards, games and more. Students can even share tips and notes with other test takers via a social media function.
This groundbreaking cross-platform system is being introduced for all the best-selling guides in the publisher’s signature AP study series—5 Steps to a 5 on the Advanced Placement Examinations. Each subject-specific course guide is structured around a five-step plan and contains several features that separate the system from other guides.
The first step that students are encouraged to take is to develop a study plan, the second step is concerned with building knowledge, the third and fourth steps focus on honing test-taking skills and strategies, and the fifth is designed to foster the confidence that students need to ace the tests.
The unique system also takes into account the fact that not everyone learns the same way. There is one approach that follows the school year, another that follows the calendar year and one that accommodates the “last-minute” student who is just looking for the highlights of the course.
In order to make sure the system stays current when it comes to curriculum test information, the system is updated annually. The latest version was just launched in July of 2015.
