Seeing as the questions are now in the public domain, I think that means they are fair game. I have one thing to say:

WTF was up with #2?!

I'm a little confused as to why the form B questions are up too. I was under the impression that form B was the alternate test, to be given in two weeks, but I must be mistaken.

#2 was the strangest AP test question I've ever seen. But, I can't say I didn't like it. I'd much rather be given the freedom to decide the "two sides" by myself, instead of having to read a passage and "agree/qualify/defend" that person's opinion.

EDIT-just looked at the "B" questions... ugh! I would have hated to write on the propriety of nude statues, or "how unspoken rules contribute help to define group identity. Rachel Carson wouldn't have been bad, though.

the #2 essay i wrote.....serioiusly could have been written by a third grader. i didn't show that i knew my stuff. this bites.

Hm.. I took the Form B one because I live in Asia. The form B is for international test takers, I think.

Just_forget_me, They actually weren't that bad. Practically everyone I talked to afterwards didn't think they were too bad. 3 put me off for a second but was pretty easy to write about once I thought about it for a minute or so. 2 wasn't that bad either. I hated 1, though, cuz it's just so formulaic.. analyze rhetorical strategies blah blah blah.

I'm kind of happy I didn't get YOUR number 2.. haha.. I thought the Form B's #3 was easier than the other #2.. hehe.
