Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Ursula Adams
How To Ace The National Geographic Bee is aptly titled. It is a study guide to prepare the reader for test questions in geographic trivia. The book is endorsed by Jeopardy host Alex Trebek, who also serves as the moderator of the National Geographic Bee, and by the 2011 winner of the contest, student Tine Valencic. Valencic wrote the book's foreword, sharing his experiences preparing for the geography bee. The book then separates into six distinct chapters. It begins with defining geography and giving the reader an overall understanding of how the bee is conducted. Chapter 3 is paramount for students of geography, whether or not they plan on participating in the contest. This chapter simply and excellently defines the various types of maps and how they should be interpreted and also explains map features and landforms. Sample questions are given in chapter 4 to prepare the reader for the various types of questions. Answers are provided at the book's end. Also, within the last chapter readers are provided with a wealth of geography resources, from atlases to Internet sites. Overall, this thin guide provides a wealth of information in a very easy to understand format. It is a great resource for any student of geography, as well as those aspiring to become the next National Geographic Bee champion. Reviewer: Ursula Adams
