Crash Course: An AP Student’s Savior

Advanced Placement testing season has finally arrived. Student’s scramble around studying, memorizing, and studying some more in order to review everything in their AP classes.The only two things that would relieve these AP exam stressed students would be a good cup of joe and a John Green Crash Course on YouTube.

The YouTube channel, Crash Course, is monitored by two brothers, John and Hank Green. There, they provide videos about anything academic that is used to help students understand what they are learning in class. For the past two years, they’ve been adding videos for academic purposes in 10 to 15 minutes.

The core subjects are divided between the two brothers.
