There are several parts to the Question of the Day that can prove useful to your understanding of the material and your test-taking skills. One of these is the timer feature. Unlike the AP exam, you are not required to answer the Question of the Day in a specific amount of time. However, you can see how long you take to answer the question, which can help you determine how familiar you are with different topics covered by the material. Knowing where you are strong and weak will help guide your test review sessions.
You can also use the timer to reduce the length of time you take to answer the Question of the Day. You will have less than one minute to rapidly answer each question in the multiple-choice portion of the exam, so you must be very familiar with the material to do well on it, and be very familiar with answering questions under pressure. The Question of the Day also offers graphs showing you how well you do over time and how well you understand the AP World History material compared to other AP students across the country. And best of all, the Question of the Day offers a detailed explanation of the correct answer at the bottom of the page – even if you get the answer right, you can use this information to improve your understanding. In addition to the AP World History Question of the Day and AP World History tutoring, you may also want to consider taking some of our AP World History Practice Tests.
Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools offers other free online tools to use in conjunction with the Question of the Day, including practice tests, flashcards, and Learn by Concept.
