In elementary school when they were teaching us, the teachers kept saying "You need to learn cursive, you always use it in high school." I finished elementary school and never used cursive except for that one time.

i learned cursive in elementary school, i don't think i use it anymore. The only time i really use it is to sign on the SAT, but i still remember enough to be able to accomplish that.

Not sure about essays, but I'm pretty sure you can't discuss multiple choice, as they re-use them.

That's the way AP's are...no discussing multiple choice questions ever, and no discussing FRQ's until 48 hours later until the booklets are returned.

Not that anyone actually pays attention to that anyway.
yeah. but, I'm sure no one really remembers the multiple choice anyway.

erm...is it against the rules to post what your essay topic was? i mean...you had to write in that cursive thingy that saaid you wouldnt tell... :?
it took me like 10 minutes to write that... and i was one of the first done in my room.. no one can write in cursive.. it's kinda funny
:oops: i actually raised my hand and asked how you wrote something in cursive...the proctor wouldnt tell me! grr...but i eventually figured it out...it was kind embarassing...
lol. proctor?

I think you're allowed to post the essay topic AFTER they release your score and essay...

Idk I took it twice, in march and in may. I feel like the may essay was a lot easier but I still didn't score well on it...oh well!

Did anyone else take the SAT II in US History???

Do they not teach cursive anymore?
Here, they teach it in third grade and pretty much ignore it after that.

In my district, you're forced to use it in elementary school because "in the real world, everyone uses cursive." Which then turns out to be utterly false. Most kids never use it, so a lot of them forget most of it.

Lmfao.
In my school, we were in the middle of capital letters before my teacher lost interest xD
I think I was the only person in my class who bothered to learn the rest myself, but that was mainly because I thought it was pretty :3
