Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is definitely the best review book I've used for any of the eleven AP exams I've taken. It does a great job of presenting the key details of European History in a very clear and concise matter and it avoids the all too common mistake of turning a review book into a second textbook.

Everything in this book is outlined instead of thrown into paragraphs, which makes reading and comprehension a lot faster. Furthermore, the book leaves out non-essential details of European History. When dates or events aren't necessary, they aren't provided. The book is based on a close study of all released multiple choice questions from the AP exam so that it can cover each topic with the right amount of depth. This means that the book can be in large print on small pages and still be thinner than any other AP prep book I've seen, all without losing its usefulness.

Another key benefit of this book is that the content is really readable. It doesn't contain jokes or anything like that, but the prose is very conversational and easy to read. With most books I find myself reading some sentences multiple times to really understand them, but I never had to do that with this book. I was able to quickly read each page and understand the material on the first try.

This book also does a great job presenting relevant resources beyond a play-by-play account of the history. It includes little tips that explain which aspects of an event to study or warn that a particular event shows up on the exam more than others. In addition, it provides a really helpful list of key terms and several important comparisons of figures and eras that commonly appear on the exam.

This book was invaluable for my AP Euro test this past year! The test was on a Friday, and I got this on the Tuesday of test week! While I admit, I did not read all of the book, and I did not use everything they suggested in the way of essay strategies, it was definitely an excellent way to recap everything of importance that I had learned throughout the year.
To be fair, I did also use the Princeton Review book (which was required by my teacher) and I read most of that and took one of their practice tests. However, the majority of that book is just a bunch of "hints" on how to answer multiple choice questions and essay questions, which was uselessly redundant for anyone who's taken a final or a standardized test. It was also very big and annoying to carry around.
The Crash Course is small, concise, and perfect for the student who doesn't want to start studying in October for one little test. Other people in my year started studying six WEEKS in advance and got 3s and 4s. I started studying six DAYS before and I got a FIVE!!
THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!!

I highly recommend this book to anyone taking AP European History. This book got me a 5 on the exam!!!!!!

All I did to study was read this book (I read it pretty carefully, though, periodically "testing" myself by running through important wars and people in my head) and I got a 5. I did use another book, Modern European History by Birdsall Viault, to quickly understand my weakest points, but since the Crash Course is so concise and informative, I rarely used my other book.

Compared to other prep books like Barrons and Princeton Review, this book is so cheap and SO MUCH MORE WORTH IT! It tells you everything you need to know in a short, clear way and helps you analyze trends in history (good for your FRQs).

GET IT, YOU WILL GET A 4 OR A 5! :]

I was a bit of a slacker when it came to AP Euro last year. I got by in the class, receiving a B+ first semester and A- second semester. Unfortunately, I decided to meticulously study the course material only 2 or 3 weeks before the AP test. Although I had read a majority of the chapters (using an in-depth summary when I did not have the time to read), I still felt flustered by the amount of facts that I needed to memorize. To give me a boost, I decided to check out this review of the course. I created flashcards for each topic and tried to cram as much information as I could.

Suffice to say, I received a 1 on my AP Exam (I did not at any moment purposely stop). Bear in mind that my class spent most of the school year just analysing the chapter's in which we read and categorizing the information (no tests, no essays). We only wrote practice paragraphs (not full essays) two weeks before the final. Practice multiple choice tests were optional (although I took one and some online).

I am not going to make my class nor this book a scapegoat for my failure. To be frank, I think this book is an excellent resource and my teacher intended us to learn how to use our own resources for future tests. However, you must not buy this book a month before the test and expect to do well on the test as your only resource. The amount of knowledge required for any AP class requires the whole year to study (not just taking the class alone). I recommend buying the book during the summer, read the summary (it's a quick read) and creating note cards that you can use to study throughout the year. This summary is the glue for the knowledge you will acquire during your school year, allowing you to piece together the convoluted mess of European history; but without taking time to study the material, the summary will have no merit.

I hope my lesson will help you in the future. Be careful when reading the success stories from others. Reading a summary can not excuse studying.
