    This Book Is A Must

    This book is really helping me out with AP World History. Im a sophmore in high-school and taking a college course isn't easy. But, with this book i really started to understand the chapers in more detail. The outline is very useful. A must buy for AP World History takers everywhere!!!

    amazing book!

    this book is an absolute lifesaver. my teacher could not teach and this got all the important information in. i had both this and barron's, but this book is much easier to read while still covering all the important stuff. also, if you absolutely MUST cram, this is the book-- i started with this a week before the test and got a 5. its also just a great side reference for the work you do in class because it has an amazing index of every topic you'd ever need. unfortunately, its not the best at teaching essay structures, but it gives you all the information on what essay graders look for as well as all the historical facts.

    Enlightening

    Very enlightening. Unlike most books, this one was very clear and friendly. It wasn't like the textbook--it was understandable, not full of history-babble.

    The best out there

    What's to say? Princeton Review always does a great job with study guides, and they nailed this one. Not only do they not give you excessive and unneccessary information like Barron's, but they actually guide you through. I recommend this study guide to every unfortunate sophomore (or high school student) that needs to go through AP World with a bad teacher.

    Trusty Sidekick

    This is a very thorough book compared to what you really need to know for the AP exam, but it doesn't seem dense, so even if you don't absorb every detail, the general gist is good enough, especially if you know about a few regions or time periods in more detail. This book is easy to digest and I recommend reading it on the train in the mornings and afternoons maybe a month or two in advance (or, if you get it even earlier, it's a great refresher-reference for class assignments!). It's a great book, and gave me much reassurance when nervous; the DBQ tips are very helpful, although two practice tests is more than enough. With a good two-year curriculum the exam can be close to cake.

    Great Review

    I bought this book the weekend before the test, and read it in about three days. It covers the big picture of things, which is the stuff you need to know. It really helped me, and i credit it with getting me a 5 on the ap test. I also bought Barrons and Petersons. Barrons was okay, but Petersons is not worth buying.

    If only life could be this easy...

    Bought this last week... the exam is in two days... and yet I have learned/relearned everything i need to know in that amount of time. Buy this book. Don't bother with Peterson's AP Success, or Barron's How to Prepare, or the Kaplan guide. They're not worth your time. No, seriously, buy this book. If any book can prepare you in a short amount of time for this test, it has to be this book. It's an invaluable tool; it doesn't bog you down with useless information and it uses colloquialism for us younger people to be able to relate. (in other words, its written very casually) I would recommend this before recommending my textbook (and that was the best text there is)
