I felt like it really prepared me and it got me a 5, so what more can you ask for?
This Crash Course is literally an answer book for the Government AP. It is great in so many ways. Not only does a review of this book guarantee a 5, but the fact that everything comes in a bulleted format, meaning reading the whole book only takes 3-4 hours. And that's what makes this review book so much better than the others. That it can convey the necessary information and only the necessary information in a still thorough way. One read through of this book the night before the AP is all that's really necessary for a 4 or 5.
