CONGRATULATIONS! You've survived the three largest sections of the AP World History Exam.  Bringing up the rear is the LOOOOONG Essay Question. Don't think you have to write 5 pages here.  It is simply named because they require you to write a bit more than the SHORT answer questions.  Good news: you will have an option between two choices.  Let's look at what the College Board says...

CONGRATULATIONS! You've survived the three largest sections of the AP World History Exam.  Bringing up the rear is the LOOOOONG Essay Question. Don't think you have to write 5 pages here.  It is simply named because they require you to write a bit more than the SHORT answer questions.  Good news: you will have an option between two choices.  Let's look at what the College Board says...

Section II, Part B of the AP Exam consists of a choice among three long essay questions from different time spans of the course. Students choose from the three long essay questions, which deal with periods 1–2, periods 3–4, or periods 5–6 of the course. The three question options all address the same theme and assess the same reasoning skill.
In order to receive the highest scores, students must develop an argument and support it with an analysis of specific, relevant historical evidence of their choosing. Long essay questions ask about large-scale topics specifically mentioned in the concept outline, but they are framed to allow students to provide in-depth discussion of specific examples drawn from the concept
outline or from classroom instruction
 One final question. You got 40 minutes. It will cover one of three types of questions (COMP, CAUSE, or CCOT).  Oh, and you need a thesis.

 Basic setup: They'll give you THE RUBRIC, then ask you a question.  You will need a thesis, use the skill they're asking for, back it up with evidence and Boom.  That's it.  Below are two examples given from their course description:  https://secure-media.collegeboard.org/digitalServices/pdf/ap/ap-world-history-course-and-exam-description.pdf
