2021 AP US History

Fast Review

The Essential Content is designed to live up to its name. APUSH exam writers do not focus on specific presidents, dates, or places. That’s why Fast Review provides a carefully organized presentation of the key developments, trends, and patterns that are regularly tested on APUSH exams.

Fast Review contains 10 chapters and a Glossary. Chapters 1 – 9 are devoted to the nine required time periods in the Course and Exam Description book (CED). Chapter 10 provides a unique chronological description of key historic comparisons. The Glossary explains the importance of terms that have actually generated APUSH questions.

There is no reason to spend valuable review time memorizing lists of presidents, acts of Congress, or Supreme Court cases. Fast Review provides the essential information you actually need to know.

Doing The DBQ

The Essential DBQ Guide

The Document-Based Question (DBQ) poses a challenge for many students. The DBQ scoring rubric awards 7 possible points. Between 2017 and 2019 average scores ranged from a “low” of 2.22 to a “high” of 2.54. Low DBQ scores make it difficult to earn an overall APUSH score of 4 or 5.

Doing the DBQ is designed to help you write high-scoring essays. The book contains 11 practice DBQs. Each DBQ is followed by an annotated essay enabling you to understand how the essay fulfills rubric requirements.

But what if you are unprepared for the prompt or don’t understand all the documents? No problem! The final section of Doing the DBQ explains and illustrates a unique Plan B strategy designed to help you earn 4 of the 7 rubric points.
