Also check out Barron's How to Prepare for the SAT II World History, which is very thorough and contains detail that is glossed over in other books. It excels at comparing ideas, peoples, and cultures, and is more accurate, though it lacks the excellent unit overviews. I ended up with a 4 on the test, which is part due to my excellent teacher (I got very lucky) and of course my other techer John ).

Also featured is advice on answering the comparative essay question, as well as strategies for answering the AP exam's multiple-choice and document-based questions.

This book was my primary source of information, since my teacher was absolutely useless. We were given "study outlines" that were never gone over, and the material was very rarely taught. I didn't really begin studying for the AP exam until March/April.

AP World History is a fascinating survey of the evolution of human civilization from the beginning of recorded history to the present. Because it spans thousands of years and covers the rise and fall of countless empires and nations across the globe, it might seem like an overwhelming amount of information to remember for one test. If you’re missing any notes from class or are just looking for a more organized run-through of the curriculum, you can use them as a reference.

I took AP US History last year and I think I took the weirdest approach to the subject because I did not open the textbook throughout the whole year. First and most important, your teacher should be teaching you how to write a good essay for the APUSH test. There are specific things that the grading committee looks for, including several fact drops.

Two full-length model AP examinations with answer keys plus a chronological general review of world history make up the greater part of this brand new Advanced Placement test prep manual. Other helpful features include an overview of the exam, and strategies for success in answering multiple-choice and document-based questions, as well as help in answering the comparative essay question. Historical eras in the subject review fall within the five following general categories: Foundations of World Civilization (4000 B.C.-1000 A.D.); World Cultures Maturing (1000-1450); World Cultures Interacting (1450-1750); World Cultures in the Modern Era (1750-1914); and The Twentieth Century and Contemporary World Cultures (1914-present).

This book was purchased for my son due to the shortage of AP books at his school. This book provides the extra study material that my son needs to stay on course and excel his grades.

Great value!!!

For once, Barron's has succeeded in creating a review book that, although lengthy, targets every part of the new AP World History exam with precise depth (not too long, not too short). The nature of APWH makes for a long but excellent review. The chapter-by-chapter quizzes keep the reader consistently interested as well. If you're willing to put in the time, you could go through this book in a weekend. It depends on what you're looking for. With the first World History Exam one day away, this was the best book for the course by far.

Would definitely recommend to all. Saved a lot of money on this book needed to study for the AP test

I purchased this book for my son who is a sophomore taking this coarse. He thought is was a great resourse tool to help study and prepare for the AP test.

Generally For a used book it was in Ok condition. Some pages were missing and I would have liked to see that in the description by the seller. Took some time to arrive, but met the estimated dead-line. Well packaged and protected. Helpful book.

This book was an excellent resource. I didn't really crack this book open until about 2-3 months before the AP exam. The book is broken down into sections based on the AP Test and time periods. The first unit was very helpful, in a few chapters one encountered the different types of multiple choice questions, as well as the criteria and answering strategies for the three essays that were expected to be on the AP test. World history was conveniently divided by time periods, the chapter and unit quizes were great for reviewing. I used these quizes to find my weak and strong points. My history book was very long, and the Barron's summaries were very short and to-the-point. The two sample AP tests in the back of the book were excellent preperations! Some say that this book is not good for cramming, that is true if you're try to cram a year's worth of history in a couple of days, but I spent the entire morning before my exam cramming and reviewing chapters that were hazy, and it made a significant difference when I began the test. I can honestly say that I encountered questions dealing with topics that I had read about within an hour before. I recommend the Barron's book for use as a review, practice, a supplement to confusing history books, and even for cramming.
BTW-- I was a sophomore in high school (15 yrs old) when I took this course.

In terms of price per page, this study guide is a bargain. But that's one of its problems - length - and the authors know it. Like they say, "It is best to use this book over a long period of time, rather than trying to cram at the last minute."
I confess that I have always been partial to Barron's AP study guides, in part because they included a comprehensive review. But in the case of world history, we're talking about a terse 500 page `world history in brief' that is still half as long as the average textbook. Yes, they have practice tests, but then so do textbook publishers. The question arises whether this study guide is better than just using the textbook - at least this year.
It's anyone's guess whether 2002 students will find this study guide useful. It's going to require at least 50% more time to read and study than the typical AP guide - probably much closer to twice the time. If you're going to give it a try, I would suggest a careful reading of the test taking strategies, the unit overviews, and the key terms and concepts - and then skim through the review chapters to the questions at the end of the unit. Above all, I would suggest buying this study guide early and following the advice of the author; do not wait until the last minute. Teachers who plan to recommend it to their students should probably do so at the beginning of the year.
In many ways, this study guide is an impressive piece of work, but basically I think an AP study guide should be limited to 350 pages and suitable for a last minute "cram". This one's too long for that.
This resource is well organized, has some terrific quizes, and does a very good job of explaining causation and effects. The unit overviews are splendid. Unfortunately, it also contains some factual errors, so be sure to use other resources as well. The information is sometimes too thin, such as the explanation of the Protestant Reformation (not even a mention of Luther's 95 Theses). at other times, the book has more info than most, such as the effect of the printing press or the contributions of Issac Newton.

It has a very slight European viewpoint, but is fair in its presentations. One of the best things about this prep book, which allows anyone to use it for world history review of any type, is the way it weaves together events and their causes & effects, making the continuity of history and the reason for studying it clear. If not for the factual errors, I'd give it a 5.

Also check out Barron's How to Prepare for the SAT II World History, which is very thorough and contains detail that is glossed over in other books. It excels at comparing ideas, peoples, and cultures, and is more accurate, though it lacks the excellent unit overviews. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't seem to carry Barron's SAT II World History. I used a 2001 edition.
