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. Sir Winston Churchill
