Online prep and review

You might be struggling with separating your Mesozoic from your Cenozoic. Or maybe you’re curious about how scientists are trying to genetically modify organisms (not the ones you’d think). Did you know that that there are more than 1,200 varieties of banana? Shmoop’s AP Environmental Science guide does. Check it out.

A Student's Guide To AP Exam Prep

Test-Taking Tips

Specifically designed for mastering the AP Environmental Science exam. Discover what Black Friday has to do with survival of the fittest, why the Earth is like a toasted marshmallow, and why the laws of thermodynamics could be something straight out of Star Wars.

Three Full-Length Practice Exams

The test is 3 hours long (ouch). The first hour and a half consists of 100 multiple-choice questions. You will have the second hour and a half to answer 4 free-response questions:

  • One will be based on a data set, for example a graph or table.
  • One will be based on a document, like a report or an article.
  • Two will be about synthesis and evaluation—meaning they can be pretty much anything to make you think and connect information.

Practice Drills

We have plenty of practice questions to help you get comfortable with everything on the test. Carefully read the instructions for each question, and follow them exactly. If you do anything differently by accident and/or on purpose, you will lose points and/or precious time, and we will be forced to continue using and/or in sentences.

Extreme Topic Review

Environmental science is like a patchwork quilt. No, not because Mother Earth sewed it together in her free time. It combines bits of information from several different fields to give a picture of how the world is put together and how it's changing.
