On the College Board Site you will find extensive information about the APUSH class, the tests, and writing the essays.

Also, on their site, the College Board has modified lists of all old essay questions, going back for years. While the style and requirements of the test questions have recently changed, you can still learn from studying the topics, and the ideas students are required to develop and write about.

Study Guides

Don't buy any APUSH Study Guides written before 2017. Check cover - it should say "2017" or later, on the cover of whatever study guide you purchase. You want the latest information on the tests.

There are many good ones - go to Amazon for selection and price - or to your local bookstore.

If you have older Study Guides, use the questions to study for the multiple choice, (mc) part of your exam questions.

Invaluable to you. Look also at the U.S. History special publications connected to your text book, including History Flash Cards, and special publications related to your text book.

Remember, all Study Guide contain exams, including essay prompts and help. I recommend buying at least two publications. Today's study guides usually have additional, online tests for students who purchase their materials.
