*crosses fingers it'll give me a 5*
Here's the deal:
I got a 4 on the AP World History exam last year using Princeton Review, while everyone else used 5 steps to a 5. Not saying you shouldn't get that since everyone studies differently, but I'm putting that out there. The other 2 kids who got a 5 in my class used Princeton Review too.

Flash forward a year and I'm worrying over the AP Euro test, but I bought this book while everyone's getting Crash Course or 5 Steps.
Whatever floats their boat, man! But I've been talking to the upperclassmen at school and they all got 5's after reading this book through ONCE.

So if you're looking to study for the AP tests, Princeton Review's always the place to go. They have bits of snark and sarcasm throughout all the history in the pages, and is much more than a quick outline like Crash Course (although I like that too, for different reasons).

Happy studying!

My 10th grader's teacher (who is excellent and has been teaching for 30 years) says this is the book to get. It's definitely thorough and, if you work your way through it, is worth it.

Cracking the 2015 AP Euro Exam? Not Really...
This book was wonderful. It really was. But it is WAY too focused on the earlier times of European history. Most of the "2015" AP multiple choice questions were of the mid to late 20th century, but I feel that this book was much more focused on the time periods before that. It was like that especially for the multiple choice questions. So the title is kind of deceiving. When I looked at my friend's 2011 book, I noticed that they literally just copied and pasted their earlier copy of this book and slapped the new year onto it. I could have purchased the same exact book with a different year on it for cheaper. Kind of a bummer.
Pros- Well written
Cons- It is exactly ( I mean word for word) the same book as the earlier versions. The only difference is the new cover for each year. It also needs to explain more about the periods around and after the 1960's.

It was a very good book to use
It was a very good book to use. The only thing I don't like about it, is the fact that it doesn't have a section for just vocab words. Also it very lengthy. So if you like to read a lot than this is the book for you .

Ps. It the same stuff each year. Word for word, even the questions in the back. so a 2011 is the same as 2015

It sis a terrible book, with too much information that is not legitimate. I recommend the REA Crash Course for AP European History.

I've only just recieved the book, so I really can't give it a proper review. It looks good, so for the time being I will give it a 5, and I'll update it over the course of my studying. My goal is to get a 5 on the exam, so we'll see how I do.

Although I am not an AP student, I read eight different books about European History for the sake of learning about it. They were as follows: AP European History Crash Course Book + Online (Advanced Placement (AP) Crash Course), The Complete Idiot's Guide to European History, 2e, Cracking the AP European History Exam, 2009 Edition (College Test Preparation), CliffsNotes AP European History, 2nd Edition (Cliffs AP), Kaplan AP European History 2013-2014 (Kaplan AP Series), Barron's AP European Although I am not an AP student, I read eight different books about European History for the sake of learning about it. They were as follows: AP European History Crash Course Book + Online (Advanced Placement (AP) Crash Course), The Complete Idiot's Guide to European History, 2e, Cracking the AP European History Exam, 2009 Edition (College Test Preparation), CliffsNotes AP European History, 2nd Edition (Cliffs AP), Kaplan AP European History 2013-2014 (Kaplan AP Series), Barron's AP European History, 6th Edition, AP - European History, 2nd ed (Peterson's AP European History), and 5 Steps to a 5 AP European History, 2012-2013 Edition (5 Steps to a 5 on the Advanced Placement Examinations Series). Because I usually read literature that takes place from 15th to 19th centuries, the political and religious climates were unfamiliar to me. I found myself illuminated during my education of European History through the eight books.

Now, my understanding of political and religious climates is much greater than ever before. With the exception of AP European History Crash Course Book, all of the main AP books are more or less the same, and not a single book is superior to the others. Truth be told, I find the text on them to be bogged down with so much information, so it can get pretty boring. Hence, AP European History Crash Course Book is the best book of any because it excises the fat, keeps the information organized, and is filled with many tips from an experienced AP Euro reader.

On the other hand, although the goal of the books is to prepare the students for the AP examination, I feel many of the questions in the main books to be inordinately difficult and mostly nitpicking. They are more geared towards to graduate level students. I just cannot believe that high school students have to be subjected to these type of questions. Some of them aren't covered in the texts, and some of the other questions are just plain minutiae. Taking the practice tests, I usually scored between 50 and 60 with several 60s out of 80. From what I understand in the explanation of the scoring system, it is good enough for a 5 provided that I do reasonably well on the essays. I guess so because achieving a low score like that doesn't really boost confidence in terms of knowing European History well enough.

The test-taking strategies proffered by all of the seven main books aren't much of help because the test-taker's success on the examination boils down to two necessities: the knowledge and memorization of European History and the writing skill. The former is achieved by reading and retaining as much of the information as possible, and the latter is achieved by writing as much as possible. So, you are better off getting the AP European History Crash Course Book.

A negative aspect about the main books is the lack of a chapter or any pre-test analysis of quotes and pictures. That's why I was never able to do well in the questions. Thanks for the lack of preparation, guys! Finally, I compared the older versions with the newer versions of the same book. Guess what? None of the information has changed, only that the cover is different. Therefore, you are wasting your money on the newest version possible and should get an older one for lesser price. Better yet, go to the library and borrow the books for free. All in all, I actually enjoyed reading about the history of Europe, but the main books didn't help very much about getting at least 80% of the questions correctly yet I still got a 5 regardless; what a joke. So, you are better off working with AP European History Crash Course Book if there is only one book you just need. ...more
