These cards were a great, quick way to review the topics I learned about earlier in the year and forgot the details of earlier in the year. They're marvelous for dates and reconnecting the links you've lost over time. I highly recommend them to everyone, as there were about 100 cards my text book never even mentioned. I got a 5 on the APUSH test and attribute it to these cards. In short, you won't have to push your way to a 5 on the APUSH test if you use these cards. Wow, that was a tad too corny, but I'll leave it for you to groan at anyway.

These cards are the perfect pre-AP study tool. They definitely come in handy a couple weeks before the test if you're not sure where to start. Just don't buy them too late- my problem was that I bought them a week before, and stayed up every night until 2:30 just to finish going through them. There's 600 study cards, so if you buy them, make sure you have ample time. Also, the cards are alphabetized. Other AP study cards usually come chronologically ordered, so it's good to keep that in mind. However, the time period is written at the bottom of each card, so when I went through them, I sorted them out, and then reviewed by going through the time periods that I didn't know. Overall, these are really helpful and I definitely recommend them.

I wasn´t looking for a gift, but it turns up that once you open the box and start reading the cards, you automatically think that a young teenegar, a housewife, even a politician could remember or learn from the cards.

Seriously. I studied these things constantly, and they helped me on the APUSH exam tremendously. If you know all or even most of these cards, I can guarantee you will do well. They will help you with MC as well as examples for your open response and DBQs. NOTE: THESE SHOULD NOT BE YOUR ONLY STUDY TOOL! You still need to know trends backwards and forwards.

Very useful, particularly when it comes time in March and April to study for the AP Exam and it makes SATIIs a breeze. If you have the discipline to shuffle through all of the cards, it should help you on the exam. I got a 5 and I believe this really helped strengthen my MC ability on the test. It was also much more affordable and convenient than other APUSH supplements.

I took the AP test after using these cards to study with a friend. Both of us had no problem with the test, and we both made a 5, its a lot simpler and more fun to use than a textbook, though there are a couple errors.

These study cards were worth every cent of the 10 dollars I spent. They definitely save a LOT of time, and are much better than writing out the 600 cards that are included.

The little cards are great. You can quick-reference and rewiew with them, or you can use them as sources for a paper. They have condense reliable information on topics throughout US history and I know that because of them I will get an A for semister.
