Which units are the most critical for the AP World Exam?

I'm a junior prepping for the AP World Exam, and it's a ton of content to cover. Can anyone break down which units or eras are the most important to focus on so I can manage my study time better?

Hey there! First of all, kudos on taking the initiative to prepare in advance for your AP World Exam. Each unit has its importance, and the exam tends to be structured in a way that represents content from all periods. However, historically certain units like Unit 3 (Land-Based Empires) and Unit 4 (Transoceanic Interconnections) are rich in events and developments that have significantly shaped the modern world, and you will likely see a fair number of questions related to them. Ensure you understand the key concepts, and have a good grasp on cause and effect relationships during those times. Practice previous years' questions on these units as much as possible since they often provide the format and the kind of content that is tested. Best of luck with your studies, you've got this!
