Released FRQ Economics' Tests
It is quite interesting in that students know there the Free Response Questions are out there for previous AP exams and teachers know they know, but few on either side talk about it. No matter the AP class, I exclusively use released AP FRQ questions as there is nothing better (short of being an AP Reader) to prep a student than to use the real tests. To that end the only problem is that kids talk between periods, so I tell them the curve goes to the combined classes so if students talk, the curve is essentially eliminated. Secondly I use different questions on different days.
