A on my exam and A + for this book
on June 1, 2008
Adult learners do not have hours of free time to devote to studying , we have to make every moment count and this book is perfect for that. For my RN-MSN course I needed to take 2 history courses as quickly as possible. I decided on the CLEP US History I and Western Civilization I.
In preparing for the US History this book was AWESOME. It cuts straight to the important events, people and topics, the exact items that were all on the CLEP exam. Everything you need to know all in a nice neat little condensed book.
I used this book in conjunction with the REA CLEP US HISTORY book , which is also excellent. Infact, some of the practice test questions were on my actual CLEP exam, word for word. It did not matter how nervous I was going into the exam, I walked out of there with a score = to an A and I have to give the credit to these 2 books. What a great feeling it is to look at the test question on the screen and think " my gosh I know all of this ! " For those that want or need a bit more background in the way of a text book , please consider America A Narrative History 6th edition by Tindall. It too cuts right to all the important topics but is written in a very entertaining informative way. I will be reading that book from cover to cover just for the fun of it, it is that good.
