APUSH test? Multiple Choice?

Hi. I was wondering, are the AP multiple choice similar year after year, as in they ask questions over some of the same topics or are they over completely different things? I know the prompts are different but I was just curious about the MC. And also, what's a good book that would help me to achieve a passing score on the test? Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

    I do not know that much about the MCs but there is only so many major things they can ask about

    as for prep books, AMSCO is the best, APUSH Crash Course gives really concise summary of the events. Since we only have like two weeks before the test, I would suggest Crash Course

    Yeah the MCs definitely don't change that much; I think I remember actually seeing a few questions from my review books on the test. As for a book I think there are tons of great options for APUSH (5 Steps, PR, Barrons, Kaplan, REA) and you should just flip through them and see which style would work best for you.

    The specific questions are different from year to year but like the above posters said, I don't think the scope of the test can really change too much. (Although there will always be those random unpredictable questions, like the one last year about "Silent Spring"...)
    I used the Princeton Review last year and found it pretty helpful.
