Everything you need to prepare for the Advanced Placement® exam, in a study system built around you!

There are many different ways to prepare for an Advanced Placement® exam. What's best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. To score your highest, you need a system that can be customized to fit you: your schedule, your learning style, and your current level of knowledge.

This book, and the online tools that come with it, will help you personalize your AP® Spanish Language prep by testing your understanding, pinpointing your weaknesses, and delivering flashcard study materials unique to you.

REA's All Access system allows you to create a personalized study plan through three simple steps: targeted review of exam content, assessment of your knowledge, and focused study in the topics where you need the most help.

Here's how it works:

Review the Book:
Study the topics tested on the AP® Spanish Language exam and learn proven strategies that will help you tackle any question you may see on test day.

Test Yourself and Get Feedback:
As you review the book, test yourself with three topic level quizzes. Score reports from your free online quizzes give you a fast way to pinpoint what you really know and what you should spend more time studying.

Improve Your Score:
Armed with your score reports, you can personalize your study plan. Review the parts of the book where you are weakest, and use the REA Study Center to create your own unique e-flashcards, adding to the 100 free cards included with the book.

Visit The REA Study Center for a suite of online tools:
The best way to personalize your study plan is to get frequent feedback on what you know and what you don't. At the online REA Study Center, you can access three types of assessment: our online audio component, quizzes, and two full-length practice tests. Each of these tools provides true-to-format questions and delivers a detailed score report that follows the topics set by the College Board®.

Audio Component:
Our audio component provides excellent preparation for the exam's listening comprehension section.

Topic Level Quizzes:
Short, 15-minute quizzes are available throughout the review and test your immediate understanding of the topics just covered.

Full-Length Practice Tests:
After you've finished reviewing the book, take our two full-length practice exams to test yourself under exam-day conditions. Available both in the book and online, these tests give you the most complete picture of your strengths and weaknesses. We strongly recommend that you take the online version of the exams for the added benefits of timed testing, automatic scoring, and a detailed score report.

Improving Your Score with e-Flashcards:
With your score reports from the tests, you'll be able to see exactly which AP® Spanish Language topics you need to review. Use this information to create your own flashcards for the areas where you are weak. And, because you will create these flashcards through the REA Study Center, you'll be able to access them from any computer or smartphone.

REA's All Access test prep is a must-have for students taking the AP® Spanish Language exam!

Welcome to REA’s All Access for AP Spanish Language and Culture

A new, more effective way to prepare for your AP exam

There are many different ways to prepare for an AP exam. What’s best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. To score your highest, you need a system that can be customized to fit you: your schedule, your learning style, and your current level of knowledge.

This book, and the free online tools that come with it, will help you personalize your AP prep by testing your understanding, pinpointing your weaknesses, and delivering flashcard study materials unique to you.

Let’s get started and see how this system works.

How to Use REA’s AP All Access
