This review book really saved my life in APUSH. I read this book multiple times during my preparation for the APUSH test and found it extremely useful and easy to reference. Unlike other study books, it is small and gave me only the information that I needed, making studying much more practical and easy. I could also reference it easily to double check a fact or date quickly during review sessions, something that would have taken much longer in a larger, more complex study book. APUSH Crash Course is seperated into chapters that seperate US history into its different time periods, which really helped me to better classify events, terms, and people. Also provided within the outline style review of US history, are tips on what is especially important to and minded by the AP test makers on the actual AP exam. This book makes multiple references to past tests which helped me get a better idea of what was to be expected on the exam. Conveniently included as well are tips and strategies for the multiple choice, free response, and document based questions. Not to mention the fact that this green edition book was printed on recycled paper makes it very desirable and preferable. I would recommend this book to EVERY APUSH student. It will help you tremendously!!

This study guide is perfect for procrasinators who wait until the last minute to study. ITs straight to the point and tells you which points will show up on the test. Presents the information in three differents forms so its easier to remember. It did wonders to me since I have a lazy teacher who passes worksheets out but anyways great overall

This book worked very well for my students APUSH review. It is clear, concise, and well-organized for reviewing U.S. History. I liked the way it was organized in several different formats to allow students multiple methods for mapping historical themes and facts for study. I highly suggest this book AFTER studying U. S. History.
