What’s the AP Human Geography course and exam?
APHG is a social studies course to introduce students to the systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human understanding, use, and alteration of Earth’s surface. Students learn to employ spatial concepts and landscape analysis to examine human socioeconomic organization and its environmental consequences.
APHG Exam consists of two sections. The first section consists of 75 multiple choice questions and the second section consists of 3 free-response questions. The sections are 60 and 75 minutes long, respectively. It is not necessary to answer the free-response questions in essay form; instead, points are awarded on certain key words, examples, and other vital aspects.
How many students take AP Human Geography each year in US?
Since its inception in 2001, the number of students taking AP Human Geography has grown considerably, from 97,762 in 2002 to 191,773 in 2012, making it one of the fastest growing courses. Many low-income students select it to get exposed to college-level work while they are in high school.
Why Human Geography?
The greatest benefit is that students who enroll in APHG course tend to perform better in their later AP courses. The benefits of taking the exam ranged from an increased performance on the AP World History exam to a belief among students that they were more prepared for the rigor and expectations of high school.
The fact that we allow students to gain AP experience at a younger age, allowing the students to focus on only one AP course during their first AP experience. At that time, it was expected that Honors/AP students take two AP courses, AP US History and AP English. Students who are first exposed to AP with two concurrent courses will often fall behind at the onset and spend the rest of the year playing “catch up.”
Is AP Human Geography really as easy as people say?
It is the easiest of the humanities AP Exams. Just read The World Is Flat, study the AP Barron’s book, and watch a lot of FRONTLINE videos. Apart from the memorization of vocabulary words in the Barron’s book, you need to learn a few concepts like the Demographic Transition model, the Von Thunen model, etc… these are not just things you memorize, but that you understand why they are. And that’s pretty much it. You should be able to pass easily. Maybe put some more effort if you want a 4 or a 5.
