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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An inexpensive, yet relatively complete introduction. September 11, 1997
By A Customer
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic review of American government June 25, 1999
By Rianne
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars American Government February 24, 2006
This book gives a clear, factual overview of the governmental system and institutions in the US. Very helpful especially for foreigners and beginners who want to know more about how the US governmental system works.
