Studying for the AP World History Exam
Advanced Placement exams have been around for decades. While the format and content have changed over the years, the basic goal of the AP program remains the same: to give high school students a chance to earn college credit or advanced placement. To do this, a student needs to do two things:
- Find a college that accepts AP scores.
- Score well enough on the exam.
The first part is easy because most colleges accept AP scores in some form or another. The second part requires a little more effort. If you have worked diligently all year in your course work, you’ve laid the groundwork. The next step is familiarizing yourself with the exam.
