Optimize your study time for the AP U.S. Government & Politics exam with Brainscape!

Brainscape’s 600+ dynamic flashcards, covering the foundations of American government to modern foreign policy, present a highly effective, efficient, and fun way to study for one of the most demanding AP courses you will take. We have ensured that we cover all the fundamental material from the College Board’s AP U.S. Government topical outline, so you know you are covering all your bases! What's more, this app is more than just a set of facts and definitions; we also present the context and significance of the events and decisions we describe.

Whether you want help with your civics homework and quizzes, or want to do a comprehensive review for the AP exam, these flashcards will put the most important facts and concepts about the U.S. government at your fingertips. Study by specific topic, or with a randomized mix; search for specific terms and trials; check your stats to track your progress -- it’s up to you!

Research shows that quizzing yourself is one of the best ways to study. Brainscape’s adaptive platform lets you immediately diagnose weak areas (which will repeat more frequently as you study) and avoid over-studying already strong areas (which will be sorted out for you). It also tracks your overall success throughout. This won't completely replace your books -- but it will help you memorize the most important information you need to know for the AP exam.

Brainscape has embarked on setting the highest standard for AP prep in the mobile community. The idea is to mesh the complete College Board outline of material with clear explanations in a streamlined adaptive flashcard software, so you can study as efficiently as possible. Good luck!

Best App I've Ever Used!

Out of the five review apps I've downloaded for this year's AP exams, Brainscape was by far the most helpful, informative, correct, and extensive of them. Bountiful with review cards categorized by section, you can rate your knowledge of each question. Then, at a neurologically set speed, the same questions will relapse based on your mastery of them, and you will have the opportunity to redo them and rerate them as necessary. I love Brainscape and wish I could recommend it to every student out there, whether in high school or college. It is very user-friendly and worth the download! Amazing! Thank you Brainscape!

This app is amazing ..... I think it's really great that someone took the time to create something that is going to educate people on American history and government ..... It is also very helpful for high school or college students studying subjects relevant to gov or history .... It really helps you to learn and remember .... Totally worth downloading .... This is my favorite app
