    A Necessity for Studying

    I got this book to help me study for the AP exam about a month or so before the exam date. However, I completely forgot about the test until about a week and a half before. I started reading this book to study. The information is really easy to absorb. And, come July, I got my scores and I got a five! The test seemed a lot easier too. I finished the sections with plenty of time and only left one multiple choice question blank. It really helped me and I would strongly recommend the Barrons guides to anyone who is looking for a study aid.

    A MUST FOR A GOOD GRADE WITH LIMITED TIME TO PREPARE!!!

    This book can supplement or SUPPLANT your textbook if you are out of time to prepare. Perusing through this book at a decent pace of 2 to 3 weeks before the AP test will maximize your chances of getting a 5, especially if you neglected to read your textbook. Credentials--780 on SAT II World History Exam and 5 on AP World Exam
