This site’s purpose is to help you study for the AP US History exam… in other words, you should be doing other stuff, too. Like reading. And doing flash cards. And writing practice essays. And whatever else helps you to learn. Do NOT use APUSH5.com as your only tool for prepping for the exam! If you do this, you’ll probably fail. Once again, this is just a study aid.
