This books is perfect if you want to review the material or have a hefty amount of practice multiple choice questions. It worked great for that part of the test. However, if you are like me and it is the free response questions you are worried about, prepare to not receive much help from this test book. While all the practice tests come with well written free response questions, the scoring guidelines are horrible. They basically say "1 point if you got it right" and don't explain what exactly what was needed to receive that one point or give you a sample response and you are left to grade yourself. Simply reviewing the released FRQ topics on the College Board website might be a enough though.

We were able to use this book during the year to help review for tests. We liked the structure and approach of the book. Our student did receive a 5 on the test. The orderly review provided by this book boosted her self-confidence.

Last year I had a pretty terrible teacher for AP US Government, so I bought this book about a week before the exam. I went through all of the review chapters and highlighted them, did all of the practice exams, and made some flash cards for the vocabulary I didn't know (there was a sad amount that I didn't know), all in the week before the test. When I went in to take it, I found that I knew the vast majority of the material. This book is not the best for practice FRQ's, but it does provide you with the information you need to do well on the FRQ's. I received a 5 on the exam. I definitely recommend this book.

This book is really helpful, and really easy to understand. It is a really fast read and speaks in words that are easy to understand. With it, my AP Government class is alot easier and more understandable. It gives you all the things you need to know to pass the test.

I like this book because it really goes into detail in each chapter without being overwhelming. I also like how many practice tests there are.

Liked the key terms definitions for every section. Summaries at end of sections helped for last quick minute review before test.
