Checks and balances

Just remember that federalism is like a triangle

Everything!!!! Eschew Mediocrity!!!! Go HAM!! #YOLO. But really, I think knowing a lot about interest groups and how they operate is a big key.

they should read and watch the news and study government and politics each every day like i did

Know the amendments. I was surprised and did not have knowledge of what the 22nd and 24th amendments did. Also, isn't federalism more of a horizontal line?

Joe no federalism is like a triangle hopefully you didn't screw this up on the AP exam

iron triangles = issue networks....also, I think that knowing public opinions and the aspects of political participation would be helpful as well. Additionally, knowing EVERY single committee would truly help. I was confused on a lot of the committees and I think that making a little chart would help a lot to understand them better and not mix them up! Also, like Liberski said, checks and balances, and as Joe said the amendments! Overall....VOCAB VOCAB VOCAB

Bureaucracy came up numerous times on the test and it would have been helpful to have covered the fine details of it

Thank you class of 2012! This compliation will really help me to start review for the AP test. I think that my Amendments song will help me with the order and contents of the 27 amendments, but I should start to review everything since May is coming up soon!

Thank you all for the help. I will make sure to know all of this material for the AP exam in May.
