This isn't your standard multiple choice test. The College Board will present you with 55 questions over the course of 55 minutes. So, if you do the math... That's 60 seconds per question. But, again, this isn't a list of questions. These are ALL stimulus based. Below is what the College Board tells you about the Multiple Choice section:
THEY'LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING (READING, PIC, MAP) AND ASK YOU QUESTIONS ABOUT IT. (BUT ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLES WILL NOT APPEAR IN THIS SECTION UNLESS THEY EXPLAIN THEM TO YOU!)
Luckily, the College Board won't leave you hanging here. They've provided some examples! So, let's walk through a few together so you don't freak out in May. (They give you 8 sets of examples. If you want to see all of those CLICK HERE and scroll down to page 148)
SAMPLE #1: IMAGE
OK. So, each question will have a stimulus. Well, there it is. This one appears to be showing Hammurabi (yea, the law code guy). They will give you the stimulus (in this case an image) and a little description. What's next? The questions (2-5 questions based on the stimulus). For the answer key, scroll down.
SAMPLE #2: CHART
ANSWERS, 1. D, 2. D, 3. B, 4. B, 5. D, 6. A, 7. B
55 questions. 55 minutes. All stimulus based. Expect reading excerpts, maps, charts, images, etc. followed by 2-5 questions. This will be the first hour of your Thursday on test day in May. Next we move to SHORT ANSWER. Click the BANNER below to go to the next section.
