What's on your mind?


Shmoop's guide to AP Psychology explores everything you need to know about the way our minds work...or at least everything you need to know to ace the exam. Why are we drooling? Did someone just ring a bell?

In this guide, you'll learn

  • why you should spend a little less time on the history of psychology, different approaches, and states of consciousness.
  • how to strike psychological gold on the free response section.
  • the definition of "normal"…on the AP Psych exam, at least.

Get psyched.
