When do you get AP summer work?

Ok so im a freshmen and my teachers want me to take AP Bio and AP Euro as a sophmore.

Do i get the AP summer work as soon as im done with 9th grade?
OR
Is it after i take AP Bio and AP Euro in 10th grade, then when im done with my sophmore year, I get summer work. Cause I dont know how or why we get work after the class is done. And how does the grade go in if you already finished the class?

Sorry im new to AP Classes >.>

Please answer, even if there are many answers.

How hard is AP English?

The workload depends on your teacher. At my school, AP English Language students have to write at least 2 essays per week. Most of the essays are written in class!

At other schools, more reading is done than writing. So it just depends on your individual teacher as all teachers operate differently.

The tests are on the books you read throughout the year (4 books total, 1 for each marking period). As long as you read your book or do research on it at the least and get the basics down of what it's about, you should be able to pass your tests. But I encourage you to actually read your book. You get to choose your own book for the 4 books you have to read throughout the year. Other tests you have may be on vocabulary which is very simple -- just study the vocab and you'll be fine.

Generally speaking, you do have to write a lot of essays but most are written in class which is both a pro and a con; a pro because you have less homework but a con because your time is limited to about an hour (unless you have a block schedule).

The AP English Exam was more difficult than everyone thought but if you study, it's doable to pass. I suggest ordering Princeton Review Book for AP English Language through Amazon.com. Make sure to study this review book at least two months in advance prior to taking your AP exam so that you're well-prepared.

ALL AP exams are in May.
