Overview


Students preparing for the Advanced Placement U.S. History exam will welcome this revised and updated set of flash cards. The cards encompass the entire AP course and offer students the flexibility to study American history in ways not available with textbooks and study guides. The 500 cards run chronologically from the Colonial era of the early 1600s to the present day, and are divided into seven general categories: Arts and Sciences, Domestic Policies, Presidential Matters, Wars and Foreign Relations, Economy and Business, Legal Issues, and Society and Culture. They are numbered and labeled so that students can arrange them within a chronological time frame or according to any of the above-noted categories. Students can use the enclosed metal ring to rearrange the cards in any order that fits their study needs. Each card has a small corner punch hole to accommodate the ring.

Okay, so this really doesn't look like much at first, and to some may even be considered a bit useless. This is really not the case. **** tl;dr people -- Just get it. It will save your behind when you're reviewing for your APUSH exam, so really. Get it. **** Barron's APUSH Flash Cards are probably one of the best products that I have gotten for school yet; it contains 500 different flash cards, which are numbered (always a plus!), with brief yet in-depth content about each of the terms. The APUSH Exam, as said by my teacher, picks its content and questions from hundreds of different terms in any random order. These cards will be a great resource to test your memory, insight, and determination (mostly determination...). Each card has a hole in the corner that can be attached to this neat little ring so you can easily flip through each card, one by one (of course not ALL of them at once!) -- very handy for quick on-the-go study sessions. Of course, they can be tough to handle if you take them out of the box and spread them out, so unless you're one of those OCD people like me who just HAVE to have every card back in order, I suggest keeping the cards in the nifty little box in which the cards came; it'll save you all of the trouble of scrambling about for a lost card with a very important term on it. **** Of course, it seems a bit ridiculous to attempt memorizing FIVE HUNDRED (500 -- for those of you who don't like words) different vocabulary words, events, pieces of legislature, figureheads, etc., but don't worry; you don't NEED to know every single thing. This is just a simple resource out there for people to study over a long period of time before the exam. It may not seem like it, but over time these things will begin to sink in and on the day of the exam, you might think to yourself, "Hey! I remember this from my flash card!" ... If you're taking APUSH right now, keep a look out for this little box of flash cards. Next to your NASH textbook, this will be one of your best resources when preparing for the exam. If you're planning on taking APUSH sometime during your high school curriculum, all the better. Try to study these on the side with whatever content you're currently learning so that you can get a head start with the course's content. Well, that's it for my super-long review... (>__
