Advanced Placement Report to the Nation 2006 - This report provides information on Advanced Placement (AP) course- and exam-taking by the Class of 2005.

State reports are also available, providing information on changes between 2004 and 2005 in the number of students taking AP exams and, conversely, the number of AP exams taken by students in each state.
