Very good preparation materials. When you get this, be sure to studiously review the history chart and memorize the cards. Also, you must take the two tests! They are extremely helpful in helping you to get that maximum grade. By far, this book and/or barron's ap world book are/is all you need to succeed. Credentials--used this and got a 5 on my AP world history test in 2007 and 780 on the SAT II world history subject test in 2008(this pack is not enough to get you a good score on the subject test but good enough for you to get a 5 on the AP test).

The ad claims 5 powerful tools 4 14.95. Not true. It contains 300 excellent study cards, that I really enjoyed, a few pratice tests, which are okay, a history chart that's cool but not a great study item 4 the AP test and two laminated pieces of paper that basically tell you to use your cards and take your pratice tests and repeat. So it's actually more like 2 and 1/2 powerful study tools for 14.95 which isn't all that expensive so it's worth it.

This pack is a great benefit, but I would not rely on it totally. I used this in addition to my textbook, Princeton Review (extremely important), and '5 Steps to a 5.' The practice questions are the reason I purchased this book. Although they were easier than the actual test, some of them reviewed me on information that was very important for the test. The SparkChart, however, I do not recommend. In APWH, memorizing dates is not very important at all. It may make your essays a tad bit better, but over all they are not important. The note cards are somewhat beneficial, but the best part of this is its practice tests. Worth the money.

I think I just go through the features of the pack in explaining my disappointments with this product: 1)300 flash cards- Many were repeats, many were WRONG!!!! 2) Online Diagnostic Test- This Test is free without buying the pack. Mistakes on answers, mistakes in grading 3) SparkChart- A six page fold out chart with more than 1,200 useless facts organized in a very awkward manner 4)Many Mistakes and poorly explained answers When you buy this product it seems like its really going to be helpful but it just confuses you and is very time consuming, taking away from any actual study that you could be doing.

AP world wasn't hard for me but when the time for the exam came around I got scared. There were hundreds of help books but this pack caught my eye. The flashcards were a huge help and actually were included into a few of my essays. The tests were great too because in my class we just went through the meat and the tests let me review alot of what I had learned before. This book is great but not a miracle worker you have to study at least a month before and be dedicated, having a love for history helps too!! P.S- The essays really aren't that tough, if you know what your'e doing you'll get it or if you dont write as much as you can about that subject usually about other countires and stuff and bs it, it worked for me!

This is a great source to choose. It contains a variety of study techniques, like notecards and timelines. This is coming from a person who only took World History for a semester and got a 4. Trust me, it helps a lot!

The Sparknotes A.P. World History Study Pack is awesome! It prepares you for the exam through 300 note cards, practice exams, and a DETAILED timeline of important dates. I recall looking through the dates, hours before taking the exam- remembering one in particular that happened to be-a date on the Comparative Essay! If this product was $100, I would still buy it. I personally believe that I am stealing from Sparknotes-it's worth way more than it's priced. What's my logic? I got a 5.

The AP World History Power Pack helped me out SO MUCH. The flashcards are absolutley great. If you buy this product, STUDY THE FLASHCARDS, you will be extremely thankful if you do because a lot of the flashcard questions have information you REALLY need to know on the exam. This product is worth every penny.
