How to study to get a 5 on the Biology AP Exam?

Hello, I am currently in Biology AP and I'm not sure how to study for the exam. My teacher literally does nothing. She has given us about 4-5 days of notes and maybe 2-3 powerpoint lectures out of a whole semester. She basically just gives us homework: concept maps, flashcards, chapter outlines, and packets and tells us to do work on them everyday until the end of the unit when we take the test. I do all of my homework, and my teacher says I'm doing an excellent job, but I don't feel like I'm learning anything. I tried to take a practice exam but I only got about 4 right out of 15 questions so I just stopped. What are some ways that I could study for the exam to get a 5? If you're answering and you took the exam, could you please include your score? Thank you.

I got a 4 (I totally skipped one of the essay questions) and I studied by just reviewing my AP Bio book front to back. But I am sure taking some of the practice tests would have significantly helped me.
