Complete information. But did not expect it being held together by a plastic fastener - makes the cards have a weak point that cracks easily especially with careless storage/useCard Set like this should be a folded set / massive laminated not binded by a plastic fastener - for on the go rugged use by a medical ry not good choice to bind the cards by single plastic fastener.
Edited: Just found out that there is actually more than one card but sloppy shipping by amazon only sent one card. A single Card was just thrown into a bag, along with a couple of other things I bought. obviously by someone who does not care about how they do their job. Disappointed, amazon! Returned for a full set. 4 stars are for exc content, I give two stars for amazon e card I received includes very succinct and amazing info but one laminated card for 8 Dollars is really overpriced.
Breaks each section down and tells you what terms the college board uses and what they will be expecting from you. After using this my grade has significantly improved along with my understanding. I introduce this to my teacher and now she will be implementing this in all her future classes. 10/10 Definitely recommend for anyone who wants to ace the exam/create an awesome curriculum for their class
I was hoping “pocket” meant it would fit into my scrub pockets.... but no.... it’s wayyyy too huge to fit into any pocket. In a veterinary hospital it’s not very practical to carry around a full sized book in your hands, so I haven’t even been able to use it. [email protected]#$%! fit in my pocket so that I could carry it and use it.
This book blows away the competition. After reading the Princeton Review study tutorial in to prepare for the AP test, I felt a bit overwhelmed with info and still had questions about LEQ and DBQ writing, so I searched Amazon for another resource and took a shot on this book and boy am I glad I did. The format makes this book simple to read with dozens of practice and example responses that illustrate what you have to know and how it applies to the AP curriculum. The annotated curriculum framework helps to connect huge ideas to specfic examples and limits the amount of content need to obtain the maximum score. Not to mention, all this content comes at an unbeatable price! I will definitely be investing in the AP Gov ver of this book for next year!
Several of the examples in this book would not have earned points at the AP reading. Mr. Harmon makes a nice attempt to structure the writing process, but clearly does not have enough experience with the College Board rubrics and expectations to be writing this type of guide.
This book is so awesome and has all info that are necessary to create note of during each of your cases. There are even specialty exam guidelines and track sheets at the back of this book as well. I have fun following cases and keeping track of them, this will create it easier to organize the cases I am on throughout vet school and in practice! You should definitely consider any of these books.
Barebones summaries of the information. A amazing companion to the larger Princeton Review book, but I would never tell students to just study this book. Better off using the Barron's flashcards & the larger Princeton book for reviewing for the exam.
I used these flashcards to support study for the US History I CLEP try and found them useful. They won't respond every question on the try and the practice questions that a lot of people use aren't always related to the try either. Use these a supplement to your study efforts and you will do fine.
Perfect book. The APUSH exam is no cake walk and this book really helped me to be able to not only understand the material but the ins and outs of the try itself. For someone like myself who finds history boring this was a tremendous help. $16 is well worth the college you will obtain if you take the time to give this a read!
In an exam with lots of content where it is very simple to forget integral info learned in the beginning of the year, Dr. Harmon's book did an perfect job at not only refreshing my memory on previous topics, but also helping me know what the most necessary info was. Compared to other books like it, this one blows them out of the water in terms of actually telling you how to obtain points through targeted info and not just bogging you down with the same broad info that your teacher may have given you.
Specifically purchased this 2018 edition so that the practice tests would contain the changes created to the AP History exam. They do not -- the questions still use the format of the pre-2017 exam. For a "2018 Premium Edition" this is unacceptable and misleading -- especially for those purchasing this "new" ver solely for the most updated try format.Just like a lot of try prep book companies, they are simply recycling content and sticking a Fresh 2018 label on them to more books. Attention to detail and consideration of students' needs is clearly less of a priority.
This a fairly comprehensive book that info info that you would search on the AP exam and is a amazing reference book for US history in general.But it's hard to say that its a amazing study guide. There was no index and the sections are divided into time periods instead of tactics or study hints - such are peppered throughout, but the majority of this book is historical summary and I had to remind myself that it was a study guide.With some work this could be a amazing resource for people wanting to brush up on history, or pass the AP exam. But as it is now, I just don't see it being organized well enough to support a majority of students.
My daughter says this book saved her neck in preparing for the AP exam. Her teacher didn’t really do any exam prep at all in their course but my daughter pulled a 4 and she said it was because of this small book. It was a great, quick review.
The content and historical developments seem to have been updated well according to the changes. HOWEVER, there is at least one major error that I have found on my initial look of this book. The explanation of the DBQ rubric is missing some info and has mixed up other points. Please look up the official College Board rubric if you wish info that is correct, as this is 25% of the total exam score. I have a very difficult time recommending this book to my students when such a major error has been made.
My first criticism is fairly mild, the questions on the MC portion of the tests should be in chronological order, these jump forward and back in time, affecting the flow of the test. My second, more important, criticism is that a lot of of the first and second questions in each MC set do not seem to be AP quality, either too picky, too easy, or not in the fresh curriculum. A lot of of the distractors are so off subject or out of the time period that they are not good examples of a wrong answer. On the positive side, the review sections are well done, so those students who need a concise review can search it here.
me, as a student taking AP United States History, this Princeton review book is extremely helpful, at such a low cost. It contains 4 FULL LENGTH practice tests, and has quizzes for each chapter. Best part is, the detailed explanations. It also contains extra online work, including another full length practice test, and much more. Take advantage of this opportunity, and CRACK the AP United States History Exam 👍!!!!
This arrived the day promised when the publisher released it! My son has been using this in his AP globe history class and it's a large help!!
