We are pleased to announce the publication of the 7th edition of MULTIPLE-CHOICE AND FREE-RESPONSE QUESTIONS IN PREPARATION FOR THE AP ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND COMPOSITION EXAMINATION.
In light of the fact that the AP English Language Examination is comprised entirely of nonfiction,
the new 7th Edition AP English Language book has retained its
popular six examination format. The completely new sample exams, totaling over three hundred
challenging multiple-choice questions, are accompanied by equally challenging free-response prompts that
address the three disparate language tasks: the essay analysis, the response to a citation, and the synthesis
essay. Featuring two fully-explicated practice exams (with sample papers, rubrics and assessments), the
edition has an additional four sample exams that challenge students with an interesting variety of
nonfiction, including classic and contemporary essays, speeches and sermons, letters and travelogues, and
even literary criticism. Among the over forty authors represented are Wright, Didion, Morley, Brokaw,
Lamb, Emerson and Mencken.
Each class order is accompanied by a FREE
which contains all the sample questions as well as thorough explanations for both passages and questions.
Separate student Answer Keys for the multiple-choice sections are included with each question
Though the greatest factor in student success on the AP English examinations is good teaching,
test familiarity and practice should not be ignored or underrated. Prepare your students for the AP English
Literature and Language examinations by ordering the books that provide the most comprehensive question
selection (over 300!) and the most diverse and engaging passages. Increase their comfort – and your
satisfaction – by ordering today.

Here is what some of your colleagues have to say about our previous edition AP English Language book:
"What a wonderful resource for an AP teacher! The books provide ample practice for the students. They are accurate and
include the newest synthesis essay questions and sample student essays; in short, they are indespensible in my classroom."
Sigita Miltier / Tidewater Academy, Wakefield, VA
"The synthesis essays were very helpful. There are not very many of them available, and I used them all."
Philip Fickling / Francis Parker School, San Diego, CA
"Diversity of periods and levels of difficulty were exceptional."
Linda W. Shaw / Kerr-Vance Academy, Henderson, NC
"The books are an incredible resource for AP test practice. I have been saved countless hours of time by using these prepared materials."
Marie Marcincavage / Hazel Park High School, Hazel Park, MI
"I love the multiple-choice questions. They are challenging enough to give the most complacent student a reality check.
Love the sample essays as well. These books allow me to give my students AP practice with helpful commentary to improve.
Your explanations are terrific as a teaching tool!"
