Getting students ready to succeed on AP Exams
To help students prepare for exam day, the College Board offers several resources for use both within and beyond the classroom.
Students can hone their essay-writing skills with downloadable, previously administered free-response questions available for each AP Course.
Released Exams allow teachers to prepare students using an actual AP Exam. In addition to providing the multiple-choice questions and answers, these books describe the process of scoring the free-response questions and include examples of students' actual responses, the scoring guidelines, and scoring commentary. Released Exams are produced every four or five years per subject on a rotating basis. Released Exams may be purchased at the College Board Store.
