Content and Structure

In this portion of the APCS course, we will :

Go through all materials and knowledges required in the APCS exam scope

Spend more time on common challenging and difficult topics so students will get more exposures and practices on them

Go through AP practice tests that include multiple choices and free response (code writing) problems.

All through the course, we will identify key knowledge points that students need to be reviewed and refreshed, and focus on those in lecture and exercises, the goal is for students to repeatedly practice what they learned, and learn what they are weak at, and eventually complete the course obtaining proficiency in Java programming and/or ace the AP Computer Science test.
