The College Board has broken down how much each unit is weighted on Section 1 (in a normal AP Exam year), so make sure to distribute most of your studying time equally between the units! Here is that breakdown by unit:
APHuG Breakdown by Unit
|1: Thinking Geographically||8-10%|
|2: Population + Migration||12-17%|
|6: Urban Land Use||12-17%|
|7: Economic Development||12-17%|
Here are some strategies that will immensely help you on the exam! This is not an exhaustive list and to get all of the strategies and information, check out the APHuG Ultimate Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) guide 📖
Instead of trying to find the correct answer to every question, try looking for incorrect answers and cross them out ❌
Always cross out wrong answers as you go!
If you can't choose, try looking for specific words in a question or answer that make it wrong.
Always be picky 🤔 when selecting your answer
Sometimes you get a question that you are simply just stumped on 😥
If you really just don’t know the answer, make your best guess, circle the question so you can come back if you have time in the end, and then move on.
Pick 1 Letter of the Day (LOTD) before you even start the exam 🅱️
Sometimes you understand the concept, just not the question 🤨
A helpful trick is to take the question out of fancy 💃 AP language and into phrasing you understand 😊
If the question says "A negative consequence of the internal migration of the United States of America is-"
You could Rephrase ✍️ the question to "Bad effect of people moving inside of the USA is-"

Focus on the topic: when looking at a question, focus on the topic it is dealing with and try and recall everything you remember about the topic. Oftentimes it will help you come up with the correct answer.
If you have 60 minutes and 60 questions, this gives you one 1️⃣ minute per question. If there is one you are stumped on, use the Mark It ⭕ Strategy. If you have some questions that take you less than a minute you can come back at the end and try again. If not, it is just one point.
Remember, it's always better to get one hard question wrong because you skipped it than to get 5 easy questions wrong because you didn't have time.
