However, it’s worth noting that official resources for AP Language and Composition are a little bit sparse, especially when compared to the AP Literature exam.
However, it’s worth noting that official resources for AP Language and Composition are a little bit sparse, especially when compared to the AP Literature exam.There are, in general, three resources that the College Board offers for any given AP exam: complete released exams, released free-response questions from previous years, and sample questions from the “AP Course and Exam Description.” Unfortunately, the College Board doesn’t appear to have released any official complete AP English Language and Composition practice exams, so I have nothing to link to here.While the exact wording of the multiple-choice questions isn’t exactly the same as on a real AP exam, the tasks are very similar and the passages are well-selected.
The best practice test resources come from the College Board.
This is because they are the ones who create and administer all AP exams, including AP Lang and Comp, so their materials are the closest to the real, actual questions you will be seeing on test day!
The academic publisher Mc Graw-Hill offers a 25-question multiple-choice diagnostic quiz for the AP English Language exam.
The quiz is nominally 25 questions, but you might actually be able to get more than 25 questions’ worth of practice out of it because every time you open a new test window you get a subset of questions that are randomly selected from a question pool.
Albert offers a huge number of mini-quizzes on analyzing the rhetoric of various notable nonfiction passages.
The questions don’t exactly sound like genuine AP questions—the style is a little more informal and to the point—but they are decent practice for answering questions about rhetorical techniques as applied in a given passage.

With the AP English Language and Composition exam coming up, it’s important to find the best practice resources, and that includes practice tests!
However, only the tests from 2007-onward include the same three question types that are on the test currently.
Earlier tests include two rhetorical analysis questions instead of a synthesis question.
