US History AP Cliff Notes Review  Oct 18, 2007
Good for last minutes studying before AP exam, and for reviewing details that are not taught in the classroom.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK  Dec 16, 2004
This book does just about nothing for you. At first I was amazed to see that they could do an AP US Review in so few pages. Now I know why. It merely gives you a list of "things to know." Each chapter literally consists of a header and a list of terms, such as "election of 1800" or "Articles of Confederation," and it suggests that you look it up in another book. I personally suggest the REA AP US book which provides full and simple explanations of everything.
OK Book for Practice Tests; no review  May 2, 2004
This A.P. preparation book is not the best book I've ever seen. Unfortunately, I only purchased this book as a sole review shortly before the test and was disappointed. The practice tests in the back are great and there are four full example tests, therefore, I must give them some credit. Overall, would not recommend this book as a primary resource for studying.
this book is an awful review  Sep 26, 2003
Being a cliffs study guide, I thought this book would be helpful, but it is NOT. I had to get another book that would actually help. The book just lists important names and places, and rarely explains them, resulting in you having to look up in the textbook all of the answers. It was worthless. The end multiple choice part was fine though.
Excellent When Used with other AP Reviews  Feb 18, 2003
Although this book lacked depth of information when reviewing history, the tips on the multiple choice section and how to write the essays was fabulous. The practice tests were very helpful to me because I used this book to skim through the material, to look at the terms and to make sure I knew what those terms were (even though they were not defined). The tests will help you know how to deal with the real test. I used this review book with the one by REA and the Princeton Review, and found it very helpful.
