The DBQ was on the elements of the New Deal, if I remember correctly. Another essay was on the Articles of Confederation.

AHHHHHHHH AHHHHHHHH
Who can answer this question:
In 1890 the most important source of revenue for the fed gov was...
income tax, sales tax, liquor taxes, or custom duties.

that question was on last years test. i took it for practice.
the answer is custom duties

Income tax wasn't a source of revenue until later (although the Populists wanted them during the 1890s). So that kills that choice.

Id say custom duties because protective tariffs and reciprocal trading was big during the 1890s.

This is my worst time period, so dont take my word for it...

The correct answer is JFK

By Cherrybarry (Cherrybarry) on Tuesday, May 04, 2004 - 07:12 pm: Edit

I think it will be on the colonial period. Haven't asked one in five years.

i took it last year and got a 5, yeah that new deal was easy :). I have been calling it for a while to my friends in apush now that this years will be either jacksonian or gilded age. I don't think it will be the 1900s. Colonial wouldn't be bad unless it is before 1780's or so. Like colonies that would be hard! So long ago. Good luck!!! Oh and one strategy make sure you read all the answer choices, and read carefully! Also try to eliminate and guess when you aren't sure. The odds become in your favor then.

What's the breakdown of the MC part of the exam grade versus the essay/DBQ part? As in, how many multiple choice correct answers are necessary to get a 5 with some varying ranges of the essays? Anybody out there know?

By Celebrian23 (Celebrian23) on Wednesday, May 05, 2004 - 03:05 pm: Edit

here's how they score:
take how many mc you got right, and subract the number wrong times .25, once you've got that number times it by 1.125,okay now take your dbq, its out of 9, so take your score and times it by 4.5, now take your two essay scores and add them and then multiply that number by 2.75 now add your dbq weighted and your essay weighted and your mc weighted now in 1996 a 5 was a 116 and up, a four was a 95-115,
