AP Computer Science A – Java Concepts and Fundamentals

Attain a high-level understanding of Java concepts and fundamentals with a focus on succeeding on the AP Exam

This course will provide you with a high-level understanding of Java concepts and fundamentals with a focus on succeeding on the AP Computer Science A exam. This course provides videos for each major topic that is presented in a quick, crash-course style with an emphasis on high-level concepts in order to maximize your engagement and enjoyment of the course. This course also provides quizzes after each lecture, practice coding questions after each unit, and a final exam that mimics the same format as the real AP exam. In the last unit, I also provided extra resources and practice related to the AP Exam in case you need it.
