This handy little book helped highlight topics to help study for the CLEP American History II exam. I highly suggest that you pair this with a textbook to get more in depth. It is certainly not enough on it's own. Great way to stay to focus on appropriate topics which are part of the exam.

I bought this book in addition to the REA CLEP History II Study Guide to help me study for the CLEP History of the United States from 1865 to present exam, which I took yesterday. This book was really helpful. It saved me from buying one of the history textbooks recommended in the CLEP History Study Guide. It helped me really get a feel for things, and I earned 70 out of max 80 on the test, with 50 needed to pass. I STRONGLY recommend making a list of presidents in order, and supplementing some of this reading with looking up more details in Wikipedia or another reference. This book is great, but the test asked for A LOT more details than what the book provides. I did, however, pass the test, which is all I was looking for.

I bought this book along with "American History to 1877" for the AP History exam. There is not enough information to learn all about the history, but these books are great for reviewing. They cover briefly most of the historical events and figures, and are organized so you can find the information quickly.

This is a quick synopsis of American history up to 1877. The chronological events are described in such a way, that would enable any person in learning about the American historical events in a concise manner. i would recommend this book to all history buffs.

The only way this book helped was that it made me familiar with major things that happened within the specified timeframe. Other than that, I was lost on the CLEP.

This book helped alot. Used this book more than the REA book. Not enough to get 71+ on the CLEP test by itself, will need other resources.
