I bought both this book as well as the barons sat US history book.
This one dominates in that it makes it 10 times easier to understand. Barron's has a lot of unnecessary info but it is much more thorough in basically all the reading. BUTT it is many times more boring and often very hard to read and understand.
I read this book about 3 times (takes about like 3-4 hours, short read!!), did the tests and skimmed over the barrons and amazingly got a 760!!! it was weird cus on the practice tests in this book, i score no higher than 720. the barrons tests are RIDICULOUSly hard!!!! might be good just for info review. If your like me, where if the reading gets to complex then you tune out, get this one!!! Barrons is unnecessarily cus i did not learn anything from that to be honest..
*make sure you memorize the ammendments,acts,court cases, and important election dates......which leads to (down)
BUY the sparknotes flash cards!! They work pretty. welll i thought soo.
good luck kids!!!
I like the end-of-chapter quizzes too!
Before buying, I skimmed through Barron's and this book is much better. Barron's distracted me from the main points, going way too far into detail. I like that this had detailed, yet pertinent, information.
So buying off Amazon would have saved me about 8 bucks, but I had 2 weeks to study. Anyway...
Reading through it, I found it was simply written. However, I constantly found grammar and punctuation, as well as misspellings, throughout the whole book which irritated me and distracted from my reading. How could a book that costs around 20 have so many errors?
It made me realize that Kaplan was not as professional as I thought. Where the heck were the editors? Did they not proofread the book? I mean, COME ON. I'm sure there were more editions before this one, and did not anyone check the book to make sure it was all correct?
I'm sending it back to them.

A great review for both SAT II US History and AP US History. Pulled an all-nighter with this book; the practice tests were useful as hell. Read morePublished on June 1, 2009 by Aleydis
The surest way to get past 600 is by reading an actual USH textbook. I highly recommend the American History A Survey by Alan Brinkley.Published on October 8, 2008 by YONGZUO LI
