We report several new reliable times of minimum of the eclipsing binary AS Cam. Using all precise timings found in the literature, the O-C diagram is analyzed and improved values for the elements of the apsidal motion are computed. The discrepancy between observed rotational velocity of the line of apsides and the theoretically expected value still remains unresolved.
