Apr 02, 2012I took the AP World History test in 2011 and I credit this book for helping me get a 5! I picked up the 2009 edition from Half Price books at the beginning of the school year and read it in the weeks leading up to the test (not like I had a choice though, my teacher actually required us to read it) and it was a HUGE help. The authors worded things in a way that was easy for me to understand and oftentimes amusing (for example, when they were talking about how Commodore Matthew Perry opened up I took the AP World History test in 2011 and I credit this book for helping me get a 5! I picked up the 2009 edition from Half Price books at the beginning of the school year and read it in the weeks leading up to the test (not like I had a choice though, my teacher actually required us to read it) and it was a HUGE help. The authors worded things in a way that was easy for me to understand and oftentimes amusing (for example, when they were talking about how Commodore Matthew Perry opened up Japan to trade, they added in parentheses after his name: "not the one from Friends". I laughed). The history review was very helpful itself; the outlines at the beginning of each chapter helped me find what I was looking for fairly quickly, and the gray boxes helped me focus on the important concepts of each time period (I'm pretty sure one of the essays I had to write pertained exactly to information inside one of those gray boxes). Also, being a visual person, the maps, graphs, charts, and timelines helped me better understand what was going on and helped me chronologically organize everything in my brain. I HIGHLY recommend this book if you are planning to take the WHAP exam. :)
Jul 30, 2016So I usually don't rate books like this as a rule, but I think my recent inactivity warrants it.
May 27, 2011Can I even begin to tell you how AWESOME this book was? I had a really good teacher this year, but the textbook was incredibly dry and the only book I've ever fallen asleep on because I was bored, rather than I was tired. And I was freaking out about the exam.
Apr 10, 2016I'll rate it once I get my scores back, but this was a great review book overall!
Jun 03, 2014This prep book was amazingly thorough, and got me a 5 on the test! The practice tests really prepare you for the real thing. A must-have for all AP World H. students.
Jun 18, 2016I feel as though it's okay to count this as a book I read. it was incredibly long and I read it cover to cover. I'm also slacking in my challenge this year, and every single book counts.
May 01, 2013Not overly boring but didn't really help me. I suggest taking lots of practice tests and outlining possible comparisons.
May 14, 2009I learned nothing from this book; in fact, I never read it! I had my AP World exam today, and I think I got a 4 or 5, so I didn't even need to buy the book :(
Apr 11, 2008this book didn't really help to much-
Jun 11, 2015Pretty basic - definitely need something else more substantial to go along with it. On the other hand, it is great for last minute review/overview before the AP test.
Dec 12, 2011This book was really helpful; it deserves some credit for helping me score a five! :)
May 02, 2012I really hope this helps with my test. It was written in a way I could process and remember the information. Thank you, Princeton Review:)
May 06, 2008Funny and informational, though a little brief.
Apr 29, 2016Good. A little biased, but overall a nice representation of WH.
Jan 06, 2018I have a very tough teacher for my AP World History class and this book has helped me a lot throughout the year in hardships like learning things that the teacher didn't cover in class, but make it to the tests and quizzes later and understanding the material in a more story like form.
May 12, 2009Okay, I was pretty sure I was going to fail the AP exam yesterday, but thanks to this book, I might have gotten a 2 instead of a 1 (which is still a fail, but hey... I only had it for a week.)
May 25, 2015As I started reading this from the beginning of the 2014-15 school year, I used it to study at the very end for my AP World History Exam in May. I read the whole book, start to finish, in three entire days before my test, and I found it very beneficial with help on essays, period reviews, and just plain advice for the test.
Jul 07, 2012I am not a high school AP student, but rather I'm an adult who has been wanting to read a general overview of world history. Without any other ideas, I picked up Cracking the AP World History Exam 2012, a general review book for high school students produced by The Princeton Review. I read about 200 pages of world history summaries, timelines, and key terms.
May 12, 2011I realize that this is not an actual book, but I practically read the whole thing, so I might as well review it right?
May 03, 2014The book serves as a satisfactory review for basic concepts, although it lacks a lot of necessary information and at times is even blatantly incorrect. It was very disappointing, especially for the price and company as the Princeton Review tends to have a reputation for being very helpful and accurate.
