AP European History Flashcards
The Advanced Placement program offers three different history programs, including Advanced Placement European History, which covers a period starting from the year 1450. This course focuses on several themes: how Europe and the rest of the world interact, poverty and prosperity, states and other institutions of power, objective knowledge and subjective visions, and the individual and society.
Also known as AP European History, the course is the equivalent of two semesters of a college-level history class. If you’re signed up for this class, you’ll learn skills like interpretation, argumentation, and the ability to analyze evidence. You’ll learn to examine patterns of continuity and change over time and how to categorize historical events and processes by time period, or determine why an event could be a defining moment in history, or why that event is not a defining moment.
These are complex skills, and the course covers complex topics, so you’ll likely be looking for study aids. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools, including Flashcards for AP European History, are a great option to use when you need something to help you study.

An example question in this flashcard set asks you to identify areas ruled by a dynasty prior to unification in Italy, with five potential answers; another example is a question that asks you to identify groups associated with laissez-faire economics.
