Helping my Son ace the exam

More help for a great son! These exam aids are great if used, and assist good students in getting a 4/5 on the AP Exam!

Great study tool

This is a great tool to get an overview of everything that will be on the Ap exam, since textbooks have too much information to possibly remember at once and tend to go into unnecessary details. The Barron's book provides a good and detailed summary of every time period and lists economic, social, and political developments that are necessary to know for the essay portion of the exam. It also provides good sample multiple choice questions in its practice exams, though its essay topics are definitely not like actual essay questions. However, the book still offered me a comprehensive and detailed summary of all topics covered on the test without going into extra detail. I got a 5 on the AP test =]

A great guide!

This book contains a brief overview about world history from every culture. I highly recommend it!

Lengthy history review, but inaccurate practice problems.

I took the 2008 AP World History exam. To prepare for the test, I read Kaplan's, Barron's, and Princeton Review's AP World History test prep books. Of the three, Barron's has the lengthiest history review. Pretty much the entire book is history review. The review is really detailed, and actually seems more of a textbook than a test prep book. In addition to lengthy reviews, this book also summarizes each time period, breaking it down into sections, such as gender role or political structure, really well. This book has a lot of practice questions, 10 almost every few pages. Unfortunately, the sample tests and practice questions don't reflect the actual AP World History exam questions at all. The practice questions in this book are more context questions than conceptual questions, and doesn't really challenge the student to think about the interactions between different cultures, which is basically what the AP World History exam test is about. This book does an even worst job to prepare you for the essays; although plenty of essay questions are provided, none of them have a sample essay so that students can see what might be expected of them in their essay; the general tips/suggestions in the beginning of the book just doesn't cut it. If you have several weeks before the test, you may want to consider this book for its lengthy review. I just got my grade, a 5.
