I kept an OPEN mind for this book, but it didn't MAKE the CUT,
This review is from: How to Prepare for the AP European History (Barron's AP European History) (Paperback)
I was keeping an open mind while reviewing this title because I KNOW everyone has different learning methods, but I don't think being presented with spaztic, unorganized material is one of them. This is one of the most poorly organized books I have every studied. But in all fairness, I WAS subconsciously pinning it up against the Cliffsnotes and Princeton Review which are FAR more efficient to study. The essays that are presented are FAR TO DETAILED and not a good indication of the expectations of the College Board, especially with the few minutes given to write the essay (DBQ and free-response). I was very surprised at this Barron's book, because its SAT and other AP exams preps are among the elite.
