A collection of great sources for review for the AP Government Test

BEST LAST RESOURCE
Encourage your students to call-in to C-SPAN's "Cram for the Exam on C-SPAN" this Saturday! This program is to help students prepare for Monday's AP U.S. Government and Politics exam. Two AP U.S. Government teachers from Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois, Andrew Conneen and Dan Larsen, will go over vocabulary, give test taking pointers, and answer any of your students' last minute questions during the Washington Journal this Saturday, May 1 from 9-10am ET. The teachers will also discuss questions that have appeared on previous exams and explain what students could expect to see on the 2010 AP U.S. Government and Politics exam.

For an additional cram session, have your students take a look at C-SPAN's "Cram for the Exam on C-SPAN" 2009 program: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/ program/id/205049

Your students can call-in to (202) 737-0001 ET/CT or (202) 737-0002 MT/PT, email to journal@c-span.org, or send questions via Twitter to @cspanwj during the one hour program. We hope that you and your students can join us for one last cram session before Monday's test!


1. For the entire month of April a CBS News political blog/vlog (written by 2 AP gov't teachers) will be dedicated to AP review. Check it out at cbs2chicago.com/school. Each day will be a key concept.

2. The Facebook group A.Pnyx is open and available to students looking for additional review. In addition to review materials, students are invited to ask questions. A group of AP teachers are on regular call to answer questions. Simply search for A.Pnyx on Facebook and you have review 24/7.

3. You can't go wrong with Betsy Newmark's page. Even though this review is based on the Wilson text, it still covers all the concepts.
