In the past few days, the College Board has released important information regarding the 2020 AP exam schedule.
Tests will consist of free-response questions only; last approximately 45 minutes each; and be administered online from May 11-22nd, with additional makeup dates in June.
After some discussion with my SAT vocabulary book co-author and APUSH expert extraordinaire Larry Krieger, I’m happy to announce that we’ve decided to release condensed (approximately 50-page) AP guides that specifically target the 2020 online exams. We’ll aim to make them available within the next 2-3 weeks, sooner if possible.
Our current plan is as follows: I will be covering the AP English Language and Literature exams, and Larry will be handling APUSH.
The 2020 dates and questions for these exams are as follows:
- AP English Literature (May 13, 2pm EST): Prose Analysis essay (on the full exam, Free-Response Question #2)
- AP English Language (May 20, 2pm EST): Rhetorical Analysis essay (Question #2)
- APUSH (May 15, 2pm EST): Modified DBQ with 5 sources (Question #1)
What about if we already purchased the full length book through your website before the AP announcement? Will we get a complimentary digital copy of the condensed version?
If you have already purchased the updated AP English Language and Composition book, there will be no need for the condensed version. The condensed guide is going to consist of the exact material found in the book.
