Welcome to AP European History!
The AP course and examination in European History are intended for qualified students who wish to complete studies in secondary school equivalent to college introductory courses in European history. The examination presumes at least one year of college-level preparation. The current AP program in European History corresponds to the most recent developments in history curricula at the undergraduate level. In colleges and universities, European history is increasingly seen in a broad perspective, with teaching methods reflecting an awareness of other disciplines and a diversity of techniques of presentation, including visual and statistical materials.
The AP European History Exam is on Friday May 12, 2017.

Short Answer Questions (SAQs)
The short answer questions (SAQs) are a new addition to the revised exams for AP history courses (AP US History, AP European History, & AP World History). These questions require students to respond directly to prompts in complete sentences, but not to the point of writing an essay.
I have created a guide to the AP History SAQs that includes four questions that are completely irrelevant to any exam content. This will allow teachers to introduce SAQs to their AP US, AP Euro, and AP World History students in a way that will acquaint students with the format in isolation from the content.
In the future, I hope to include links to sample SAQs for all of the AP History subjects.
