The Advanced Placement (AP) United States History Exam is a standardized test taken by high school students in the United States who are enrolled in AP U.S. History courses. The exam assesses a student's understanding of the major themes and events in U.S. history, as well as their ability to analyze historical evidence and arguments. The test is developed and administered by the College Board, the same organization that administers the SAT.

The AP U.S. History Exam consists of two sections: a multiple-choice section and a free-response section. The multiple-choice section is 55 questions and lasts 55 minutes, while the free-response section is four questions and lasts 105 minutes.

The multiple-choice section tests a student's knowledge of U.S. history from 1491 to the present. Questions cover a wide range of topics, including political, economic, social, and cultural events and developments, as well as major themes and interpretations in U.S. history.

The free-response section requires students to write essays in response to prompts that ask them to analyze historical evidence and arguments. This section tests a student's ability to think critically about historical events and to make connections between events, themes, and interpretations. The questions in the free-response section may ask students to analyze documents, maps, graphs, or other primary sources, or to synthesize information from different sources to construct an argument.

The AP U.S. History Exam is scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest score. A score of 3 or higher is typically considered passing, and a score of 4 or 5 may earn the student college credit, depending on the policies of the college or university they attend.
