crash course ap us history dbq


Get ready to learn the skills and strategies to score better than 87% of students on the AP US History FRQs- the SAQ, the dreaded DBQ, and the 'We still have one more essay to write?!🤯” LEQ. The FRQs are 60% of the exam, so lets get you prepped to crush it! 

After the three live trainings, you will understand how to best approach each section of the written part of the AP US History exam, learn the common mistakes other students (but not you!) make and how to avoid them. And on May 5, you can walk into that exam room with confidence and some swagger! 😎

In the three, 75-minute live trainings you will get overviews of each section, a strategy to maximizing your points for each part of the FRQ, (even if you have struggled all year), practice with skills and live feedback as you do so!
