This book is designed to help you prepare for the AP Macroeconomics and Microeconomics exam. As a student, your task is to sum up all of the information that was given to you in your economics class. Taking the exam could earn you college credit and/or placement into advanced coursework at the college level.
Each exam consists of two sections. Section I consists of 60 multiple-choice questions. Most of these questions are not basic factual recall questions; rather, they demand an analytical processing of the material you already know. Section I accounts for two-thirds of your final grade. Section II consists of three free-response questions (one long and two short). These analytical problem-solving questions involve several subject areas. Note that the essays do not require full paragraph explanations. Rather, each essay should have a brief explanation and a graph to support the explanation. The long-response essay is scored at twice the value of each of the shorter questions. Section II is one-third of your final grade.Download CliffsAP® Economics Micro & Macro
