What should I bring for my APUSH exam?

My APUSH exam is coming up and I want to be prepared. What are the essentials that I definitely need to bring with me to the exam?

It's important to be well-prepared for your APUSH exam, so here's a list of essentials to bring with you on test day:

1. Photo ID: You'll need a valid, government-issued, or school-issued photo ID. This is a requirement for taking the exam, so make sure you have it with you.

2. AP Student Pack: If your school provides an AP Student Pack, which contains your AP number, make sure to bring it. The AP number is necessary for exam administration.

3. No. 2 pencils: Bring a few sharpened No. 2 pencils with erasers for the multiple-choice section of the exam.

4. Black or dark blue pen: You'll need a black or dark blue pen with non-erasable ink for the free-response section of the exam. Bring a few pens just in case one runs out of ink.

5. Watch or timer: A watch (without an alarm or a smartwatch) or a small timer will help you manage your time during the test. Note that some exam proctors might not allow timers, so check with them beforehand.

6. Water and snacks: Bring a bottle of water and some snacks like energy bars, nuts, or fruit to keep you hydrated and energized during breaks.

7. Additional materials: If you have any materials such as a required calculator for other AP exams you're taking, double-check and make sure to bring them as well.

Lastly, remember to get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast on the day of the exam. Good luck, and I hope you do well on your APUSH test!
