NOW is the time to study!!!!


I want ALL of you to pass the APUSH Exam on  May 10th!!!! More than anything I want you to get college credit!!!!  That is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself!  Take it from me a girl who has to write a check every month to her student loans.

If you come to class and listen to me talk - that sadly is not enough.  YOU MUST STUDY outside of the classroom.  Pay attention to the ideas and concepts that are repeated in the Key Concepts!  Now is the time to get a prep book!  They are all FANTASTIC, but APUSH teachers and readers LOVE AMSCO!!!!

This morning I googled AP US History Multiple Choice Questions, and a plethora of FREE websites came up that will practice and review the material!
