I can tell you what helped me get a five:
Take good notes all year so you have something to study from before the exam. There is a lot of memorization; to remember all the events, try to think of them like a story rather than separate things. This helps you remember and also forces you to make connections between different countries/time periods, which most questions will want. Finally, have a couple of broad topics that you know really really well, and you will most likely be able to bring one of them into an essay.
hope this helps

i took euro last year, and loved it more than anything. and normally i'm not so much into social studies. first semester i had borderline grades, but 2nd i finally opened up a bit to the subject and ended up doing extremely well, even managed to get a 5. first thing, love and embrace the subject. if you see it as something to overcome or fight against, then it'll be really hard. as for studying, i actually didn't take many notes. i had my 2 textbooks, a binder full of excerpts, charts, timelines, papers i had written, etc. but really, not that many notes. i had unit outlines, which i used to study off of. my method was take a topic off the outline, find a classmate, and discuss it until you've ripped apart the concept or event to its most tiniest detail. then repeat with all other topics. then link all the topics together, religion to politics to social to diplomacy to science and technology, and so on. class and study group discussions is what helped me get my 5.

I took Ap Euro two years ago and got a four. My advice is to get the Princeton Review book to review. It's very good. Don't worry about tons of memorization. Know some facts, but know how things flow together. Write good essays. Practice on the essays from previous years. They dont need to be great; they need to be coherently written and to exhibit some knowledge.

that's our school's website. our ap european teacher (mr. elmhorst) wrote up very detailed-- make that TOO detailed-- outlines of every chapter from the book we used. I got a 5 on the test so hopefully those help you, too.
