5.0 out of 5 stars Best Review Book Out There!!!!! May 15, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd bought this book the summer before my test, and had planned on reviewing all year. However, for one reason or another that did not happen and I ended up cramming the night before. THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!! While taking the test almost every multiple choice question was in this review book one way or another (not the exact word for word of course, but similar questions)! Also, the quick review was such a life savor! I honestly think that I was only able to answer the essay questions because of this book! I had a very poor APEURO teacher, and honestly, if I pass this test it will only be because of this book!
I'm gonna go out on a limb here, but honestly, I think you could take the APEURO exam just by using this book. If you're looking for the "meat" of the story of history, with all of the "he said she said" and chapters of why something happened this is not for you. However, if you are looking for what YOU NEED TO KNOW then this book is for you! I cannot recommend it enough! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME!

4.0 out of 5 stars Succinct April 27, 2011
It's officially 8 days from the 2011 AP Euro test now, and I've been reviewing with this book for a week now. I've supplemented it with numerous other books. The best word to describe this book is VAGUE. That's not a bad thing PROVIDED that this book is not your only source of knowledge - e.g. you remember the lectures your teacher gave, facts from your actual textbook, et al.

It's tightly and coherently written. Succinct is probably a better adjective. The mini-quizes after each chapter are very nice. The 2 multiple-choice tests in the back are on the easy side. The Princeton Review book has harder multiple-choice tests. The REA book has the hardest tests, going into a lot of detail. I suppose that's a given since the REA book features an amazing 6 PRACTICE TESTS. The 2 ACTUAL previous APs provided by my teacher are on par with the 5 Steps to a 5 practice tests in terms of difficulty though.

So while it may not be a bad thing to rely on the tests in this particular book, I'm of the belief that running with weights on at first will help you run faster later. If I can run with weights, then I can fly without them. I still prefer the PR book and 5 Steps to a 5 though for information. The REA book is best described as VERBOSE. For essays get the REA Crash Course book, not the conventional REA book.

I'm pretty sure I'll get a 5. I'll let you guys know ;).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good review! January 12, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good for my teen age son! It is brief, and to the point There is a a quiz at the end of each chapter with the answers so no flipping to the back of the book to find the answers. I purchased several review books for my son, but this one is set up the best.
