OLD Testing Strategies:
Multiple Choice
OLD Testing Strategies: Essays
Two useful tips
Questions are in order of difficulty with the easier questions first.
Questions are grouped in chronologically ordered groups of 8-12 questions; after one group ends, another chronological sequence begins.
Ready Made Theses & Themes
-consider continuation of, or departure from themes and trends
Foreign Policy: isolation, neutrality, etc
Domestic: strict vs. broad constructionism, Jefferson vs. Hamilton, rights vs. Federal authority, shifts in political party positions
Social Issues
-consider minority vs. majority rights and the growth of American democracy
-consider laissez-faire vs. govt. intervention
-consider conformity vs. change
Organizing Tips
-Address the Prompt. Read and address
of the prompt
time frame
look out for words such as "and," "also," "be sure to," etc
your essay according to the verbs in the question.
the evidence you use to your thesis and to the other evidence (repeat, repeat, repeat).
Advance and Defend
your thesis.
Supply relevant detail AND analysis that links it to your thesis. Keep doing this

"If you are discovered disclosing through any means any multiple-choice question, any free-response question from an alternate exam, any free-response question from a regularly scheduled exam within 48 hours of its administration or any free-response question that is not released on the College Board website 48 hours after the regularly scheduled exam administration, the College Board will automatically cancel your exam score."
Choosing the Right Question
Pick the question you have the most content knowledge about (even if the tasks look harder).
This single factor can make or break your score.
