This test bank includes thirteen original stimulus-sets of multiple-choice questions written in the new style which will be used on the 2015 AP US History test. Each stimulus set includes a short primary- or secondary- source excerpt, and 2-5 questions over the excerpt. The bank includes a total of 39 questions. The questions cover AP US History Periods One (1491-1607) and Two (1607-1754). **The bank has been revised as of May 2015 to address some buyers' concerns and includes more questions that are better aligned to College Board objectives. Previous buyers will be able to download the revised bank for free.**

and to the nine historical thinking skills
emphasized on the revised AP test.
