Format: Paperback
This was an excellent study guide for the CLEP subject exam. It covered all subjects on the exam in a concise manner, easy to understand, not too wordy, yet complete. Also, a great value. Gives a good basic understanding of American Government.

Format: Paperback
A good text for an introductory course in American government. The authors pack a surprising amount of information into each of their chapters. While this text needs to be supplemented for use at the college level, it provides a very good framework and is quite well-organized. For the price, it is a very good value

I read this book for the CLEP test but I also supplemented it with a college textbook. I wouldn't recommend someone take the CLEP after reading just this book, it is just too basic. Read this book and supplement it with a textbook for key areas and you'll easily pass the test.
