For high-achieving high school students who wish to get a head start on their college coursework, AP or advanced placement classes like AP Art History are great options. There are many benefits to taking AP classes that make the increased workload that comes with them worth it. Primary amongst these benefits is the dual credit that high school students receive for undertaking AP coursework. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offers a Learn by Concept interactive syllabus that provides you with extra help as you work towards that dual credit.
Instead of just taking a normal high school Art History class, for example, students who choose to take the AP Art History class will satisfy both their high school Art History credit requirements in addition to getting those credits applied to their college degree. Besides the time-saving aspect, taking AP classes can also be a money-saver, as those students who choose to take AP classes will have one less class they need to pay for once they make it to college. With some colleges charging upwards of $300 per credit, and with most classes being 3 credits or more, high school students who take AP classes can expect to save almost $1,000 per AP class taken!
In short, the benefits of taking AP classes are great. However, for any of those benefits to come through, students must pass an AP exam at the end of the school year. These exams test students on what they’ve learned throughout the year. If a student passes, they get college credit for the course. However, if that student fails, they only get high school credit. This means passing the end of the year AP test is extremely important.
Luckily, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools are here to help. For students who are planning on taking the AP Art History exam, Learning Tools offers free Art History sample questions in their interactive and online AP Art History syllabus known as Learn by Concept.

Because of the extensive nature of Learn by Concept, students will want to use it as a means of having a general overview of what they need to study, and how well they know each subject matter they will eventually see on the test. One of the best aspects of this Learning Tool is that the sample questions include explanations for every subject students will see on their AP Art History exam. As such, having all of those subjects listed and explained in one easy-to-use page is invaluable to students who want to put together a solid study plan.
