The following is the list of 250-ish works that the College Board has set as the list of works to be used for the AP test.
I am providing this list to help you with your study and preparation for the AP Test. This should let you focus in on the works that you may be directly asked about on the test.
While the list is looooooong, if you take a look we have (or will have) covered the vast majority of this material.
Please note the last two groups: Indigenous Americas and Oceanic. These are the only works we may not have time to cover in class; bonus Saturday tutoring over this material may be scheduled.
