    Good choice

    Last year as I began taking AP Euro both my teacher and past students strongly recommended a review book. I was overwhelmed by how many choices there were as far as review books there are, but chose AP Achiever because I had heard others recommend it. I'm so glad I bought this book. It was a great way to review before the chapter tests, but became most important towards the end of the year, right before the AP Exam. My class had pretty much ran out of time and we were on our own to learn all material after WWII. I didn't have to time to read the textbook and instead turned to AP Achiever to learn the new material and review the old right before the exam. I guess it worked because I scored a 5! I would recommend this book to any AP Euro student.

    Best Review Book - No Contest

    I've taught AP European History for 10 years and never recommended a review text to my students, until now. Unlike other review texts, the AP Achiever is comprehensive well balanced in terms of political/diplomatic, intellectual/cultural, and social/economic history, user-friendly and even entertaining at times. Freiler manages the broad scope of European History with humor, clarity, and the expertise of someone who has been on the inside of creating the AP Exam. I strongly recommend his text for both students and instructors.

    A reviewer

    As an AP European History student, this review book proved to be a vital asset. I often found myself reading chapters out of the review book rather than the school's book for the simple reason that AP Achiever was concise yet detailed. The author didn't drag on like in the school's book, and information that otherwise would have had me drawing blanks was displayed in a down-to-earth fashion. AP Achiever saved me hours of my life that otherwise would have been spent staring blankly at an odd-smelling textbook. In addition to that, the practice tests and sample essays proved to be a valuable asset in preparing for tests. I recommend it to any student interested in taking AP European History.

    An Incredibly Helpful Review!

    This book has been extremely helpful to me! I am an Advanced Placement European History student and this book has been one of my most important resources while reviewing for the AP Exam at the end of the class. Not only does this book thoroughly cover all of the material with easy-to-read charts and timelines, but it also gives useful tips on how to study. I was also able to check how well I knew about the topics using the review questions at the end of each section and the practice tests covering the whole class. I would highly recommend this book to any European History student to use as a guide to reviewing for the AP Exam and throughout the school year.
