Stimulus-Based Multiple Choice Questions
The AP U.S. History multiple choice format is not the same as tests students may have encountered in other classes. The Stimulus-Based format provides students with excerpts from primary sources, or excerpts from secondary sources (the works of historians, mainly), and at times there may be political cartoons or graphs of data. These types of questions might sound scary, but they're usually easier to approach than are the quizzes you take in class! The videos posted below contain pointers to help you know how to approach these questions.
