AP Economics: 12 April 2010

Current Events (none because of the Diagnostic Test):

The last class Test, a short (20 Question, multiple choice), Diagnostic Test, is scheduled for today to determine which macroeconomic topics you need to review most. You will hand in only the Scantron for grading; you may keep the Diagnostic Test as a study tool.

You may also try your hand at the non-Graded, Section II free-response question administered at the same time as the Diagnostic Test. You can check your answer with a hand-out at the end of class.
