    Do not buy this book! I have tremendous buyer's remorse right now. This book is rife with errors; I honestly don't know if it was edited at all. Punctuation throughout is flawed, often to the point of changing the meaning of the sentence. Verb tenses jump between past and present within the same sentence or within bullets. It's a history guide... shouldn't the tenses all be past tense?
    Aside from these sloppy errors, there are also significant typos/incorrect diction that would cause the reader to study/learn incorrect information. For example, on page 99 alone, Senator SumNer is referred to as Senator SumMer, "poplar" sovereignty is cited as a key component of US gov't (sovereignty of trees?), and the sentence, "Anti-slavery settlers refused to REORGANIZE their laws and the new government and instead created their own government" is clearly supposed to have the word, "recognize" instead. On page 30, Wampanoag Chief Metacomet suffers yet another indignity by being misnamed as Chief Metacom, and the final period of the French & Indian War was stated as "...resulting in a victory OF the French." In fact, the French lost, so it should read as, "resulting in a victory OVER the French."
    I could go on and on, but I have to get back to studying -- with a different guide. This book is only fit for the recycling bin. What a waste of money! It's especially ironic that people will buy this to help them get ready to take a test on the information. Reading this book is an exercise in testing your knowledge because once you find the first set of inaccuracies, you can't help but to second-guess everything else you read in it. The publisher should seriously recall this book. It's an abomination.
