In this class, you will develop your ability to analyze historical data, assess historical evidence, analyze significant issues in European history, and understand historical sources, images, graphs, and maps.
The course content focuses on events from 1450 to present and provides five themes for framing connections over time and between places.
Section 1(b) contains four short-answer questions, takes 50 minutes, and accounts for 20% of your total score.
The last two sections are both long-answer responses.
Many AP teachers have posted complete study guides, review sheets, and test questions.
Be careful when accessing these, as many will be from previous versions of the exam.
The European History AP exam is one of the less common exams taken among self-studiers and enrolled students alike.
In 2016, only about 100,000 of the 4.4 million students taking AP exams took the European History AP exam.
Though the course content remains largely the same, it is now more focused towards clear learning objectives for the exam.
It is also now limited in its scope to 19 concepts falling under the aforementioned five themes. Starting with the 2016 test, there are now fewer long essays and multiple-choice questions, and short-answer questions were added for the first time.
