Before we get into that it would be helpful if you could first read some of the advice on taking exams on your phone. If you are not familiar with them, then I am sure you will find this article useful in learning about different methods for taking your exam in a timely manner.
To be honest I think taking your examination on your phone should not be used unless absolutely necessary. If you are taking your AP Exam on your phone and need to take a quick break to answer a call or answer emails, then you can always do so by using a pay phone.
If you want to use a phone for your AP Exams you have two options. You can either purchase a phone card from your school or college and install it into your phone, or if you are like me you can use an alternative method. That is, to use an old-fashioned pocket dialer.
A pocket dialer is a small device that you plug into the phone jack of your computer. It has a dial pad which you push to call and the device has its own receiver. All you have to do is push the number you want to look up on the board and the device will dial and display the results to you in an easy to read format.
Then you just hit the dial button and it will dial the number and display the results to you. As long as you have a functional dialer you can do this easily on your computer.
If you do not have a functional dialer then you are going to have to find another way to get the information you need on the board. The next alternative would be to write down the information you need and use a card to write them down.
All you have to do is write down the information on a piece of paper that you can remove when you are finished. Then you can either use a pen to mark it on the board, or if you are really pressed for time you can simply throw away the piece of paper and use your memory card for future reference.
One of the more important things you have to keep in mind when doing this is that it is important to stay in constant contact with your peers and instructors on the phone. You never know when a call is going to become important and then you need to ask someone for clarification.
It is not at all uncommon for an instructor to have the information on the board and will want it spelled out before they give the information out. If you did not receive the information from an instructor and you need it for a specific reason then you can call the main office of the college or university and ask for the information.
If you are sitting in class with your phone on and they did not get it spelled out then the phone can serve as a way to call the instructor directly. It might seem counterintuitive to call the person directly but in this case it can be beneficial to get the information before someone else sees it on the board.
In conclusion, take your AP exams on your phone when necessary, but make sure you do not lose contact with your classmates. You can use a phone card or your own information to record the information as you need itand then use a card when it is done.
