This test bank includes seven original stimulus-sets of multiple-choice questions, which are 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 27 questions. 5 of the questions require knowledge of illustrative examples from the curriculum framework.

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