If you learned everything you know about human geography from the Ice Age movies, you might still have a ways to go. Hint: Prehistoric animals couldn’t actually talk. Warm your testing chops (get it?) with Shmoop’s guide to the AP Human Geography exam.
Specifically designed for mastering the AP Human Geography exam. Get a grip on the difference between immigration and emigration, the reason some languages go the way of the dodo, and the definition of a "megalopolis" (also, why it's so fun to say). Megalopolis, megalopolis, megalopolis.
Curious about what it is really like to answer 75 multiple-choice questions in 60 minutes and answer 3 free response problems in another 60? Take a full-length practice exam with Shmoop... and then take another one. Because we have three.
If you forget everything you read approximately three seconds after you read it, never fear: refine your mad human geography skills with drills, more drills, and—you guessed it-even more drills.
Check out our in-depth study guide and practice problems galore on each of the topics.
