Book Preface


Your route to a high score on the AP World History: Modern Exam depends a lot how you plan to use this book. Start thinking about your plan by responding to the following questions.

  1. Rate your level of confidence about your knowledge of the content tested by the AP World History: Modern Exam:

    1. Very confident—I know it all

    2. I’m pretty confident, but there are topics for which I could use help

    3. Not confident—I need quite a bit of support

    4. I’m not sure

  2. If you have a goal score in mind, choose your goal score for the AP World History: Modern Exam:

    5 4 3 2 1 I’m not sure yet

  3. What do you expect to learn from this book? Choose all that apply to you.

    1. A general overview of the test and what to expect

    2. Strategies for how to approach the test

    3. The content tested by this exam

    4. I’m not sure yet


This book is organized to provide as much—or as little—support as you need, so you can use this book in whatever way will be most helpful to improving your score on the AP World History: Modern Exam.

  • The remainder of Part I will provide guidance on how to use this book and help you determine your strengths and weaknesses

  • Part II of this book contains Practice Test 1 and its answers and explanations. We recommend that you take this test before going any further in order to realistically determine

    • your starting point right now

    • which question types you’re ready for and which you might need to practice

    • which content topics you are familiar with and which you should carefully review

    Once you have nailed down your strengths and weaknesses with regard to this exam, you can focus your test preparation, build a study plan, and be efficient with your time.

  • Part III of this book will

    • provide information about the structure, scoring, and content of the AP World History: Modern Exam

    • help you to make a study plan

    • point you towards additional resources

  • Part IV of this book will explore various strategies such as

    • how to attack multiple-choice questions

    • how to write effective essays

    • how to manage your time to maximize the number of points available to you

  • Part V of this book covers the content you need for the AP World History: Modern Exam.

  • Part VI of this book contains Practice Test 2, along with its answers and explanations. If you skipped Practice Test 1, we recommend that you take both tests (with at least a day or two between them) so that you can measure your progress. Additionally, taking these tests will help to identify any external issues: if you get a certain type of question wrong more than once, you probably need to review it. If you only got it wrong once, you may have run out of time or been distracted by something. In either case, reviewing your practice test results will allow you to focus on the factors that caused the discrepancy in scores and to be as prepared as possible on the day of the test.

You may choose to use some parts of this book over others, or you may work through the entire book. The ways in which you use this book will depend on your needs and how much time you have. Now let’s look at how to make this determination.

Extend Your Practice!

Head over to your Student Tools, our online hub for additional resources, to download your third practice test. Follow the instructions on the Get More (Free) Content page at the beginning of this book to access this content and more!


1. Take Practice Test 1

Before you can decide how to use this book, you need to take a practice test. Doing so will give you insight into your strengths and weaknesses, and the test will also help you make an effective study plan. If you’re feeling test-phobic, remind yourself that a practice test is a tool for diagnosing yourself—it’s not how well you do that matters but how you use information gleaned from your performance to guide your preparation.

So, before you read further, take Practice Test 1 starting at this page of this book. Be sure to do so in one sitting, following the instructions that appear before the test.

Got Bubble Sheets?

We provide a bubble sheet for each practice test in the book. You can also download one from your Student Tools if you need extra copies.

2. Check Your Answers

Using the answer key on this page, count the number of multiple-choice questions you got right and the number you missed. Don’t worry about the explanations for now, and don’t worry about why you missed questions. We’ll get to that soon.

3. Reflect on the Test

After you take your first test, respond to the following questions:

  • How much time did you spend on the multiple-choice questions?

  • How much time did you spend on the short answers and essays?

  • How many multiple-choice questions did you miss?

  • Do you feel you had the knowledge to address the subject matter of the short answers and essays?

  • Do you feel you wrote well-organized, thoughtful short-answer responses and essays?

4. Read Part III of This Book and Complete the Self-Evaluation

Part III will provide information about how the test is structured and scored. It will also set out areas of content that are tested.

As you read Part III, reevaluate your answers to the questions above. At the end of Part III, you will revisit and refine the questions you answer above. You will then be able to make a study plan, based on your needs and time available, that will allow you to use this book most effectively.

5. Engage with Parts IV and V as Needed

Notice the word engage. You’ll get more out of this book if you use it intentionally than if you read it passively, hoping for an improved score through osmosis.

Strategy chapters will help you think about your approach to the question types on this exam. Part IV will open with a reminder to think about how you approach questions now and then close with a reflection section asking you to think about how or whether you will change your approach in the future.

Content chapters are designed to provide a review of the content tested on the AP World History: Modern Exam, including the level of detail you need to know and how the content is tested. You will have the opportunity to assess your mastery of the content of each chapter through test-appropriate questions and a reflection section.

6. Take Another Test and Assess Your Performance

Once you feel you have developed the strategies you need and gained the knowledge you lacked, you should take Practice Test 2, which starts on this page. You should do so in one sitting, following the instructions at the beginning of the test.

When you are done, check your answers to the multiple-choice sections. Ask a teacher to read your essays and provide feedback.

7. Keep Working

In addition to this book and its online Student Tools, there are other resources available to you, including a wealth of information on AP Students, the official site of the AP Exams. You can continue to explore areas that can stand to improve and engage in those areas right up to the day of the test.
