So thankful for this book! My teacher was utterly horrific at "teaching" my class anything about European history, so everyone essentially was self-studying for the exam. This was kind of the "go-to" book for my classmates and me. Crash Course refrained from unnecessary complexity, wording, and information, while also being extremely well organized. It has a sort of glossary for common terms and essentials as well as tips for each part of the exam. Having already taken and passed the exam, I can say that all the suggestions were really valid, and I honestly believe it was such a good tool for any student to study in preparation for the AP test! It's totally worth the small sum of money, and it comes with a code to take an online full-length exam (though I faced some technical difficulties with it). I wouldn't recommend solely using this book to study,- it's probably best to combine it with another, longer prep book- but, this is totally the book to buy if you are short on time to prepare for the exam. Good luck! I think you'll be extremely satisfied with what REA's Crash Course has to offer!
