    This book prepared me so much for the AP exam … (Amazon review of first edition)
    May 24, 2018

    This book prepared me so much for the AP exam! It had tons of activities for me to review and study from.

    A Very Thoughtfully Written Study Guide! (Amazon review of first edition)
    February 21, 2018

    I am extremely happy with this AP U.S. History learning guide. The book states very clearly what my son will need to know for the APUSH exam. It is based not only on assimilating facts, but in providing practice in analyzing and thinking about ideas that correlate directly to the AP test subject matter.

    I’ve been somewhat apprehensive about my son taking the test because he seems to know a lot of facts but not how to relate them. From what I understand, he is going to have to present ideas and arguments that are independent from those in his textbook. This book is a god-send. The readings get right to the point (and frankly are more engaging and easier to follow than the textbook he uses in class). The exercises give him practice in juggling complex ideas and communicating them clearly. It seems to be helping build his confidence as exam-time approaches.

    Great Study Tool (Amazon review of first edition)
    May 24, 2018

    This book was able to help me learn what I needed to know and retain it for the test. I loved how many different activities it had! Without this book, I don’t think I would have been able to study as effectively for the test as I did.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Easy to read, with exercises to work on that follow the writings (Amazon review)
    June 4, 2019

    I liked that it was easy to understand for someone in high school, without it being too wordy.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    I love this course reader, the condensed readings provide great context for my students and the activities force them to go beyond the facts and make meaning. I love it.
