I bought this for my mid-term and am now going to use it for the exam in May. I was getting 70s all year on the tests and on the mid-term I got and 88! This pack really helps especially if you are someone like me who has a lot of trouble with history (and ended up in the AP class).

I was a sophomore in AP US History this year and took the examination on May 9. I felt that this PowerPack did prepare me 'enough' for the exam however I felt that the actual review of material was a bit too broad therefore those who choose to utilize this product will need to consult additional devices for assistance in areas where more detail is needed. I called the Grade Reporting hotline on July 1 and received a 4 on the exam this year. In closing, I recommend this product only when used in conjunction with other devices. I did not earn a 4 by just reviewing this pack.

This AP U.S. History review pack was extremely helpful. I bought it a week or so before the test, and am confident that I passed the AP exam with its assistance. The note cards were a quick and easy way for me to ensure that I remembered important events. They were certainly more stimulating than reading a review book. Because I learn better in a linear fashion, it may have been helpful to have the cards in order of occurrence. I was, however, able to use the SparkChart to get the order of events clear in my mind. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in search of a last minute study guide for the AP U.S. History exam.

This history pack is very useful in preparing for the AP US History exams. The note card system is one of the best ways to get the material organized. It also helps in quick reviews of the material. The cards can be used to carry around for quick reference to remember the material that may be difficult. This system was one of the best ways to review the material and to find out the areas of weakness. The cards helped to strengthen the weak areas.

I got this hoping it would help me with the class and the exam, but sadly it didn't. It's sad because I followed everything. I studied the flashcards all the time at least two months before the exam. I even did the whole five days to a five program. I ended up with a 2 on the exam. A TWO? Um, this definitely did not help. It also didn't help that I had a terrible teacher. What a waste, don't get this. I also had AP US history for dummies book and it was ok, but obviously didn't help much either. I think what would have been the best is the US History for Dummies book (not AP). That's what I used for AP Euro (European History for Dummies) and got a 3.
