Advice

<p>I going to take AP Government and Politics junior year, and I also want to self-study AP US History and AP Euro also. I like history and never get bored by it. Would this be a good idea?</p>

<p>also, how would you self-study APUSH and AP Euro?</p>

<p>well for starters check out apexamreview.com</p>

<p>That site has lots of free content to see if ap us history is for you or not. If it works out you can buy the premium subscription or get a review book. It really is that simple.</p>

<p>I wouldn't recommend it. In fact, AP Euro and APUSH are probably two of the hardest APs to self study because there's so much material and it takes a long time to go through it all. But if you already have a decent knowledge of history from other classes, I would say just take 1 and not both. I found the APUSH exam easier.</p>

<p>thanks. i think i'm going to take APUSH.</p>

<p>what was easier about the APUSH exam than AP Euro?</p>

<p>Both were fairly challenging, but Euro was definitely harder for me than US.</p>

<p>Well, I would say AP European History is easier due to the FR section. For example, receiving a 9 on the DBQ for European History is much more attainable than for U.S. History.</p>

<p>I'd recommend against doing 3 AP histories in one year. We're talking 3,000 - 5,000 pages full of information. You're probably also taking some other challenging courses, I would limit it to two histories. My personal preference would be APUSH + Euro or Comp Gov + Euro. </p>

<p>Before you take that advice to heart, if you want get all the materials for all 3 histories. Devise a plan that will allow to adequately allow you to complete the work on a timely schedule. After a month or so see if you are handling it, falling behind, etc and go from there.</p>

<p>The multi choice on Euro had some really obscure questions, ones that no one would ever study for. I thought APUSH's questions were much more reasonable. As far as the FR sections go, they are about equal.</p>
