This book helps you a lot in learning how to write a good essay for the exam. Each unit has questions that relate to the era you just reviewed. One question in the book was worded in a similar manner that an open-ended offered on the AP 2003 exam was asked; it related to how well the Articles of Confederation handeled problems presented to it. However, the book lacks examples of multiple choice questions. The unit ends with 17 questions but they are very easy compared to the ones on the real test. If you want to improve your essay writing skills this book is highly recommended, but if you need help with multiple choice find another book.
This book gives you in-depth ways to write a fabulous essay for the AP US history test. For each unit, it gives possible questions they could ask relating to that time period, and they answer one in a well written essay. They also look at each TYPE of essay question and how to attack it. If you want a some very helpful lessons on how to write essays, this is the book for you. BUT, if you want an overview of material on the test, and lots of multiple choice questions (some of which were even ON the 2000 AP test!) then I'd go with REA's AP US history review book. Hope this helps!
