With Advanced Placement Key To College Admissions And Financial Aid Success, Kaplan Test Prep Launches AP Edge Review Courses

With the expense of college weighing heavily on the minds of many high school students and parents, scoring well on Advanced Placement (AP) exams can be an effective strategy for defraying tuition costs, as high AP scores can earn college credit -- leading to fewer courses required for graduation and fewer semesters to pay for. Consider this: according to the College Board, in 2012-13, average tuition and fees for public four-year colleges ranged from $8,655 for in-state students and $20,823 for out-of-state students, while average tuition and fees for private, non-profit four year colleges was $29,056.

To help students score well on AP exams, Kaplan Test Prep has launched AP Edge Review courses -- interactive, live online, 3-hour review classes taught by Kaplan-certified, expert teachers in Kaplan’s Classroom Anywhere™ environment. Offered for English Language and Composition and Calculus AB, the courses include instruction on test-taking strategies, and key concepts, timed practice, and in-depth-review of answers and explanations. Students also receive Kaplan’s book of key topics, quizzes and practice tests and can access the full course recording for further review to prepare for Test Day.

“While AP classes in school provide students with the content they need for the AP exams, Kaplan’s AP Edge Review classes will supplement school learning with review and test-taking strategies that are critical to doing well on the tests -- selecting the best answer, expressing themselves concisely in essays and managing their time efficiently,” said Mark Freidberg, General Manager and Vice President of college admissions and pre college programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “It’s important to keep in mind that you don’t have to be enrolled in an AP course to take an AP exam. We encourage all students who want to strengthen their college applications and potentially reduce tuition costs to prepare for and take at least one AP exam.”
