Test Review Materials

This page is specifically designed to help provide materials to help you review for the AP Exam.  Here is a quick explanation for each of the items you will find linked below:

  • Unit Guides- these are summaries of important information from each of the units covered on the exam.  Contains many of the vocabulary terms, but provides a bit more context/explanation. 
  • Vocabulary- a list of defined terms for each unit of study
  • Free Response- these are the free response questions from the last 10 years and the scoring guides, which identify valid responses
  • Practice Tests- this is a practice test and answer key for the multiple choice section.  Remember that on the actual exam you will have 45 minutes to complete the 60 questions.
  • Supreme Court Cases- a different document than the one you received in class.  This might be a good way to review cases and read descriptions for a few cases we didn't get to.
  • Web Sites/Online Resources- these are different websites and online materials that might be useful.  There are video reviews, practice questions, flashcards, and practice exams.
