    The only reason this got a star is because you can't give 0 stars.
    I HATED THIS BOOK.
    I bought this and the Princeton Review. Started reading the first 10-20 pages of Barrons and almost fell asleep from boredom. Opened the Princeton Review and I almost felt like I was having fun learning about history.
    I barely used Barron's, and trusted the Princeton Review- and it worked! I ended up getting a 5 on the exam. Don't waste your money on this, and when it comes to any AP History class, ALWAYS go for Princeton Review.

    I teach this class. And I used this book for the first time. My results for my class came higher than I ever expected. Half of my students scored 5 or 4. And not one student got a 1. The truth is that this book does the job, and I have my student scores to prove it.
