AP CLASSES

AP COMPUTER SCIENCE  
 

There is no specific Summer Assignment, but it is highly recommended that you sharpen your typing skills. All we do is code, and you have to type all of that manually.  No cool software does that magically for you.  Beyond just knowing how to type letters, make yourself familiar with a few special characters like:

{ } [ ] ( ) - + = | * %

Other than that, get out and enjoy your summer. Don't be the kind of computer scientist that just sits inside and codes all the time...
