It is a two-semester survey of United States history from the age of exploration and encounter to the present. Special emphasis will look at the areas of social, political, economic, cultural and diplomatic history. Solid reading and writing skills, along with a willingness to devote considerable time to homework and study, are necessary to succeed. The APUSH exam is Friday 7 May 2010.
