How I Use It
Although I no longer teach AP U.S. Government and Politics, I am still active as an AP reader and help tutor students to pass the exam. This app is wonderful, and I have recommended it to many students. They love being able to practice on a regular basis without lugging around one of the exam prep books. This particular company also offers a AP World History app that my daughter is currently using to prep for the exam in May. I wish they would expand into my current field, AP Psychology!
My Take
Overall, this is a tool best used for outside practice. It is a little pricey at $9.99; however, most good review books will cost you at least that much. The app is great for students consistently on the go, and as AP U.S. Government tends to be a senior level class in our area, that is most students. I would not necessarily recommend it for use in the classroom; it is best used as a supplemental tool.
