AP Government Review #7: Civil Rights and Liberties  

This is 5-15% of your exam! See Review #9 for more on Civil Liberties and Rights (since most of it has to do with knowing Supreme Court Cases). I would put the court cases again, but that’s kind of repetitive, and I’m tired. Therefore, study the court cases[: Honestly, civil rights and liberties is a pretty easy section of the exam if you know the major supreme court cases relating to them!
