Great book to help prep for the AP Euro Test. I used it last year in conjunction with my notes from the class and scored a four on the exam. The book is nice since it has enough important information but not too much, also the practice tests and explations of correct answers were extremely helpful.Was this review helpful?

REA's multiple choice section is the highlight of this book. The questions are are BASED on old multiple-choice questions and its not true when people say they're too hard or harder than the real thing, because I just took the test on May 5, 2006 and the questions were right on the money. Iv'e taken REAL practice AP Euro exams and even the pictures are the same. Even though legally they can't put the same questions, they are very accurate and whoever says they are harder is a mediocre, average loser who knows nothing about the AP Euro exam. The best preparation for the AP Euro exam is this: 1. Take GOOD notes during class and review them. 2. Use Barron's AP Euro, it had the BEST review, my teacher even recomended it...beleive me it's the best. 3. Get the AP PowerPack from SparkNotes and review the SparkChart and the FlashCards...they are VERY good, but DO NOT use them alone they are not enough. 4. Memorize all of the multiple-choice questions from REA...all of them. Barron's has a good review, but the MC questions do not reflect the real exam, and again I know because I just took it. Don't believe those other slackers. DO NOT get PRicetone REview-it has many factual errors. For example they credit the Commercial Revolution to the increase in population growth when clearly it was due to the influx of gold/silver. THEY are EVIL!!! IF YOU DO THIS YOU WILL GET A 5, NO DOUBT.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I am a high school student who is using this book in conjuction with the AP European History book put out by the Princeton Review to review/study important topics for tests. I have found that this book is very disorganized. Major topics such as the Enlightenment crop up two or three times in just the first three chapters, making it difficult ot use this book as a reference guide, or to review specific topics. The lack of an index (present in P.R. book) makes it even harder to find topic. However, the practice tests are explanations are somewhat helpful, as you can quickly go through and see what you have learned. I am a bit surprised that they did not include questions at the end of each unit though.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book has a lot of information but you will have trouble finding any one piece of it at a time because it is poorly organized. The practice tests are the most helpful part of the book, but don't buy the one with the CD just for the CD. I made the mistake of paying way too much only to find out that the tests on the CD are exactly the same as in the book and the software is nothing special. It just has 3 tests and that's it. I would only recommend this book as a supplement to another. Barrons gives a better overview without the excessive detail and disorganization of this book. Also, the practice questions in Barrons are more similar to what was on the AP test!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Honestly, I used this book in combination with Princeton Review. I would say that, if you are studying alone, use REA, but Princeton Review is better if you're looking to review. If you are aiming for a 5, use Princeton to clear up the history for you, and then use REA to get tons of facts. DO NOT use REA as your cramming guide two weeks before the test. Rather, use REA over a period of time. Thus, I would give REA 5 stars as far as breadth/coverage, but I got my 5 in the AP exam by combining Princeton Review and REA.Was this review helpful?

This covers EVERYTHING you will need to know, but I would recommend using another book along with it to help you through the massive material. The 6 practice tests are good for testing your knowledge, but they are WAY WAY WAY harder than the real exam. I got a 5 on the real exam, but I was missing a ton on REA's tests.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book was so helpful. I used it to study for tests for my AP Euro class and to study for the actual AP test. The six practice tests didn't give a very accurate score though. On most of the practice tests I took I got either a 2 or 3, but On the real AP test I got a 4. I would say that that the book over all was a great deal, and a great help.Was this review helpful?

If you're going to use only one book, use this one. While other books claim to prepare you fully for the AP Test, they only help you on the multiple choice section: there is simply not enough information to provide help on essays. So if you want a complete review, buy this book (but don't buy the completely useless CD that sometimes comes with it).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I picked up this book after reading the great reviews from the other customers. The review section wasn't any more helpful than any other AP European History review book. The 6 practice tests were a waste of time. No question on the actual exam was like any of the questions in this book. They were much easier, and much more straight forward. Also, this book presented a superfluous amount of documents in its sample DBQ questions, more than double the amount of the average number of documents on a real AP test. In addition, the sample responses were unrealistic. They were long and too wordy. There is no way that one can write that much. This book helped me very little, if not at all.Was this review helpful?

I recommend spending your money on some other study book for AP Euro. The REA guide for the AP European History Exam is overloaded with information that is not pertinent to the study curriculum for the Exam. I took the Exam and found out that reading other books helped me out more than cramming all the info in the REA. If you are obsessed about AP Euro, you probably should buy it. But if you want a good score on the AP Exam try another book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
