The AP U.S. History course is designed to provide students with the analytic skills and factual knowledge necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in U.S. history. The program prepares students for intermediate and advanced college courses by making demands upon them equivalent to those made by full-year introductory college courses. Students should learn to assess historical materials—their relevance to a given interpretive problem, reliability, and importance—and to weigh the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship. AP U.S. History will thus develop the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and to present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in essay format.

Pretty good place to get info in powerpoint/notes fashion. The notes I looked at seem to focus on some of the key elements that you guys need to know for each section...unfortunately they aren't labeled by topic but by chapters (which mean nothing to us, so you'll just have to check each until you find what you are looking for).
