Anyone here taken art history before and can tell me what the exam is like? Hard/easy... any tips... you know, the works.

I'm taking the exam this year, and from what I've heard it's pretty easy.

The short essays are really straightforward. Just jump right into the topic and maybe make a new paragraph for each art work.

Your teacher should have given you the two options for the long essay ahead of time (Human Body Essay and Narrative Art Essay), so if you write those beforehand and sort of remember your main points, you're good to go.

I hear the multiple choice isn't too bad. The ones you might be unsure about are really easy to guess on.

If you need a good study book, I would recommend The Annotated Mona Lisa. It's not entirely comprehensive, but it covers the important stuff and tells unique stories about artists and works that help me remember what's what.

Good Luck!
