AP Workbook Lessons

In the next section, you will be assigned readings and practice problems from your AP Workbook

• The practice problems will not be graded, but you'll be assessed on the AP Test at the end of this unit

• Some sections have only a few practice problems while others have a lot. Do a few sample from each section until you feel comfortable.
