AP Students -- Please Read

I hope all of my AP students are excited about the opportunity to earn college credit by taking my College Board AP US History course.  You will find this class to be challenging, fast-paced, and much more thought provoking than the required high school US History course.  The intent of this course is solely to prepare students to pass a grueling test on Friday, May 11th, 2018. The test has 55 multiple choice questions, 3 short answer questions, 1 factual DBQ essay, and 1 factual FRQ essay.  I highly recommend each student acquire a box of Barron's AP US History Flashcards and an AP US History Study Guide and use both of them to study during the year for my unit tests and again just prior to the AP test.
