Apguy, did you study alot before the test? I took one of the Barrons test and I only got about half the questions right, i'm only in the regular U.S. History though, but i mean these questions were so f-ing obscure. How many questions is the auctual test and how many can you get wrong to still get a 600? Thanks.

I didn't study as much as I could have and that is why I am taking it again. I read through the Kaplan book once or twice but never actually memorized a lot of dates/events/people and since some of the questions were so obscure (as you said) my score inevitably suffered. I thought the test would focus more on "big picture" questions than it really did.
For a 600 you need about a raw score of 46-48 out of the total 90 to 95 questions on the actual exam. The Barrons test is A LOT harder compared to the real test, so if you are getting half right on that you should still be in pretty good shape for the exam.
Oh and I was in regular US before they put me in AP later in the year (scheduling problem) so not being in a college level course may not put you at that much disadvantage so as long as you put in the effort for independent study.
