To all you who got a 5/5...

<p>Those of you who got a 5 on the AP US History test: what did you do to study? Any tips/advice?</p>


<p>um, lol?</p>

<p>APUSH isnt hard to get a 5 on...I didn't even do the thematic essays.</p>

<p>Princeton Review Book
hell yeah</p>

<p>Arrogant jerk much, piccolojunior?</p>

<p>Princeton Review, Princeton Review, Princeton Review. Read the history overview carefully the night before the test and you should be set.</p>

<p>AMSCO. Best review book ever.</p>

<p>To get a 5, I read Kaplan's review book for APUSH. Also, I bought Barron's AP US History flash cards which were very thorough and helpful in reviewing the material.</p>

<p>AMSCO and the review quizzes will be the only resources you need.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

Arrogant jerk much, piccolojunior?


<p>Perhaps...but you can't blame me for falling asleep...I needed to reach my 10 hour threshold (to grow taller, obviously).</p>

<p>Those of you who got 5's-- how did you feel coming out of the test? I ended up doing well in World History last year, but I didn't feel confident coming out of the test, so I hope APUSH has similarly lenient standards, lol.</p>

<p>just do practice ap tests up the wazoo and read up on the areas where you mess up. AP USH really isn't too bad. It's just a bit long, that's all. have you done any mock AP exams in school?</p>

<li><p>...Stayed awake in class. That's really it.</p></li>
<li><p>I felt just really drained. And, well, I'm sure it's a familiar feeling to anyone who has taken an AP before. I didn't feel as confident as I probably would if I didn't have the equivalent of 7 cups of coffee before the test. It's hard to focus on how you're doing when you're practically shaking from the caffeine. </p></li>

<p>If you're not really a caffeine drinker, DO NOT have too much before the AP...</p>

<p>I felt refreshed coming out of it. An hour of sleep in a seasonable room is always good.</p>

<p>I was really relieved walking out, the DBQ question was on a topic I'd done a huge project on and I knew I'd done well on that.</p>

<p>I got a 4, but I'll say this:
a) know how to BS. well.
b) just study dude with everything you have.</p>

<p>for calc AB (not recommended, but answering your question):
2 days before the test I started doing problems, and I wasn't too hot on the subject before. I kept it up til the day of the AP and ended up getting the 5</p>

<p>Do any of you know how many of the multiple choices you can miss and still get a 5? The Princeton Review book didn't mention.</p>

<p>For the DBQs, how many of the documents should you reference to get a 5, assuming the rest of the essay is good?</p>

<p>I didn't really study--just winged it from staying awake in class/review sessions (because our teacher can't pace his class well) and skimmed a couple spots of some cram guide I saw on the Internet as well as a study book from REA (not recommended). I got a 5. Writing a metric ****load definitely isn't necessary; I kept it to maybe 3 pages on the DBQ and 1.5 on each SEQ with medium-large handwriting.</p>

<p>Sleepy_Sentry: The MC score needed for a 5 will vary with your FR scores and with the curve that year. As for the DBQ, I'm not sure how many you need to reference for a 5-pace score on it, and I don't remember how many I used, but you should use at least 50% + 1 in any circumstance.</p>
