    Great for the test in May, not the one in October...

    I love a lot of things about the layout of this book; for example there's a bunch of killer charts on continuity over time which are going to be awesome for essays, but there are some drawbacks.

    Say, for example, that you're an average student in an average AP World class, and you forgot to do the assigned reading on Greece. It's not because you're lazy, but you just have a lot going on. And you also forgot that today was the day you just so happened to have a quiz on that Greek reading, not because you're chronically disorganized, but because yesterday there was a traumatic incident involving spinning out into the middle of an intersection because you aren't used to driving in snow and the car you were in doesn't have anti lock brakes, and even though you didn't hit anyone, and no one hit you, it was scary damn it! If somehow you found yourself in that situation and tried to read up on what you missed in this book during passing time you would still not do so hot on that quiz. Hypothetically.

    The way the book is arranged is chronologically, and not necessarily by area the way most textbooks are. It's great because you get to see what's happening at the same time, but if you're looking for information on any particular people, be prepared to skip around a bit.

    The bottom line is that I would still recommend this book, but just be aware that it's going to help you on the big test, but maybe not as much in class.

    Highly Recommended

    Taking AP World History currently, and I already know I wouldn't be able to survive without it. Very helpful for last minute cramming! But don't do that, trust me, don't cram at the last moment! You should start pressing your noses into this book by March the latest!

    Yeah....

    I just wanted to rate something. Although I suppose it would be better to rate after I take the AP test on Thursday... I just started reading this yesterday. Oh well.
