You know when next years AP test is. You know what needs to be
covered. I would suggest that along with these other suggestions you
have recieved, that you make a schedule that allows you a few weeks
to review before the test, and stick with it. I've known several
first year AP teachers who didn't even make it through all the
material. Good luck and enjoy it, it's a lot of fun.

I had a feeling once about Mathematics - that I saw it
all. Depth beyond depth was revealed to me - the Byss
and Abyss. I saw - as one might see the transit of Venus
or even the Lord Mayor's Show - a quantity passing
through infinity and changing its sign from plus to
minus. I saw exactly why it happened and why the
tergiversation was inevitable but it was after dinner
and I let it go.
