About the AP U.S. Government Test:
The exam is 2 hours and 25 minutes long, and is divided into two sections. The AP Government Multiple Choice section is 45 minutes long and has 60 questions. Each question has five possible answers, and no points are deducted for incorrect answers. So make sure you answer all the questions, even if you are just guessing on some.

The Free-Response section is 100 minutes long and has four essay questions. Each of the essay questions are weighted equally, so you should spend approximately 25 minutes on each of them. Students are expected to demonstrate analytical and organizational skills, while incorporating specific examples into their answers.
