    It was a useful book that helped me with the AP test

    It was nice and condensed. I liked how it told you the main points, and let you pick up those points through details. Really helped me remember them better.

    Great Review Book!

    This book was my main source of review for the AP US History Exam. Although I had worked and studied hard in the class all year long, this book greatly helped me go over major concepts and ideas before the AP Exam. I ended up getting a 5. A great choice for review!

    Good Review

    This is good review that helped me do well on my test and i recommend this! you should also use your notes since it doesn't cover everything that comes on the exam that they ask you on alot overall it is good review the practice exams are excellent and i do recommend it since it does cover alot of material that you need to know. It is especially good for learning to write dbqs and essays and gives you excellent information on how to write good dbqs and essays!
