    My son says it is very helpful in studying for his upcoming test.

    I had purchased the McGraw Hill brand for the US gov book, but all my teachers were pressuring me to buy a Barron's book so that's another reason I purchased this.

    It's very in depth but the short chapters that summarize everything seem to be missing a lot of material.

    Format: Paperback
    This book is perfect for anyone that wants to keep up with their class throughout the school year or if you are self-studying for the test from the beginning of the school year, it exceeds all my expectations. One VERY important thing to note is, if you have 1 month or less left to study for the test and you are self-studying DO NOT buy this book no matter how fast you think you can read and understand the book. I bought this book with a month left for the test to self-study thinking I can self-study all of world history in one month using this book and boy was I wrong. Unless you have no school in the month leading up to the test and can dedicate day after day for a month reading this book do not buy it for self-studying. On the other hand, if you're buying this as a supplement to the class or to self-study with a wide berth of time left for you to study this is a must have product. The book provides you with 2 options on how to study it. You can either read the shortcut sections with condense about, oh say, ~40-50 pages into ~15 pages or you can read the scenic route which covers everything in depth. What this book does so well that school textbooks can't do is analyze the major themes of the AP World History curriculum that you are tested about. Another feature the Barron's book has that other books don't do as well on is teach you how to nail the FRQs (Free Response Questions) and the tricks behind it. Good luck to everyone taking the test in ~1 week!

    Edit 11/22/14: Got a 4 on the APWH test without taking the class for the test and only studying the 2 days before the test using this book. When I opened the test up I was smiling because I realized how this book literally covered every single question asked but what dropped me to the 4 was that I misread the prompt on one of the FRQs. I still HIGHLY recommend this book because the APWH test doesn't have a planned revision for the 2015 year (since it had its biggest change in 2014 which this book is made for).

    As an AP World History teacher, I would currently rate this resource as my first choice. I recommend the Barron's 6th edition to my students and their parents. My students from last year also rated this as their first choice. I am trying to get a class set for this school year.

    I bought this at the last minute when i realized I had purchased the wrong book at the store (I purchased AP US Government by accident) and I didn't want to trouble my father into driving me back to the book store with finals right around the corner so I ordered it online and thankfully it arrived safely. I had purchased the McGraw Hill brand for the US gov book, but all my teachers were pressuring me to buy a Barron's book so that's another reason I purchased this.

    I would definitely recommend this book. I got it much too late, but it still helped me. The practice tests are decent.

    I've been using this book to study for my AP World History course. It's very in depth but the short chapters that summarize everything seem to be missing a lot of material. If you really want to do well, I would use the full-form chapters and read it like they recommend in the beginning of the book. The book is very well written, and not as dry as some other history books. There's also a practice AP World History test at the end. I think that this is a reasonable price as well.

    growing up, history used to be my favorite subject but since India was competitive, my parents used to encourage me to study more of science and maths so that I can get in Medical school which I did but when we immigrated to America and I got an opportunity to train my son for SAT/AP , I chose the entire series by AP for my son. I must say, we are impressed with the content and the ease of studying this book....it doesn't intimidate you.
