2013 AP® Biology Free-Response Questions

New Review

AP® free-response questions are often challenging for scholars. Give them practice writing free-response questions using former questions from the AP® Biology exam on topics such as genetic mutations, cellular respiration, evolution, and experimental design. This gives the opportunity to experience the style and type of question seen on the exam. There are scoring guidelines and teacher's resources that allow for accurate grading of the responses.
