How to Answer an AP MC
Harty 2014-2015
A note on test writing
Please remember that 3/4 answer choices are wrong.
As a test writer, the first thing I do is write the question, then the correct answer.
I then go through and create three other answer choices that will be distractors- they have a hint of truth, but are overall incorrect.
This is where knowledge of the content is so important.
Do not get hung up on questions with an answer choice that is half true. They will be there, they are meant to be there. AP will put them on there. Know your content, and don't take all your time debating between two answer choices. If it's half true, it's all wrong.
3. Process of Elimination
Go through and immediately cross out the ones you know don't answer the question.
If you can narrow it down to 2, make an educated guess and move one.
If you can't narrow it down, skip it for now, and come back to it after you finish the MC so you don't become frozen on one question.
Be sure to clearly mark on your scantron that you need to go back to the question
Know your time frame
Before you panic, realize that over 135,000 high school students successfully took this test last year.
We will have plenty of practice on this!
Know the process
2. Answer in your own words
This does not need to take long or be eloquent. In your mind form your own answer before reading the answer choices.
1. Read the question and put it in your own words
Patrilinearity was found in all but which of the following societies?
A. Rome
B. Sumer
C. Bantu
D. Byzantium
Patrilinearity was found in all but which of the following societies?
A. Rome
B. Sumer
C. Bantu
D. Byzantium
Patrilinearity was found in all but which of the following societies?
A. Rome
B. Sumer
C. Bantu
D. Byzantium
Patri... hm that means father. Lineal, family line. So which of the following civs didn't trace their lineage through their fathers?
Hm, well most classical societies traced their lineage through their fathers. So the major ones are patriarchy. That will help choose the one who wasn't.
Oh good. Rome was totes patriarchy, as was Byzantium because they used to be Roman. So cross out A and D. I'm left with B and D. I think Sumer was in Mesopotamia, which had patriarchy, so I will guess C.
Easier said then done, I know. But practice!
