    Great study aid!

    Last year I took the US History AP Exam and I scored a 5 and I believe it was because of the "5 Steps to a 5" books. I like that each section gives a great overview of what I learned this year. You actually have two diagnostic exams plus two more practice exams, giving you a great amount to study with! It's detailed but straightforward!

    Awesome Layout!

    This is coming in super handy, especially as my Gov class is only one semester long, so I have to do most of the review myself. The format is nice and presents things in the simplest way possible- not an easy thing when it comes to politics let me tell you.

    What I really love about this is that it's practical, and I don't mean just for the big test in May. Because this was an election year, I got to see a lot of this stuff in action and this book helped me muddle my way through with fewer migraines then expected. I haven't taken the test yet, but if this can get me through real life, paper application should be a breeze!
