About the Author

Larry Krieger earned his B.A. and M.A.T. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his M.A. from Wake Forest University. In a career spanning more than 40 years, Mr. Krieger taught a variety of AP® subjects including U.S. History, World History, European History, American Government, and Art History. His popular courses were renowned for their energetic presentations, commitment to scholarship, and dedication to helping students achieve high scores.

The College Board twice recognized Mr. Krieger as one of the nation’s foremost AP® teachers. Mr. Krieger’s success has extended far beyond the classroom. He is the author or coauthor of several widely used American history and World history textbooks, as well as the creator of REA’s Crash Course® quick-review study guides for AP® U.S. Government and Politics, AP® European History, and AP® Psychology. In addition, he has been a sought-after speaker at Social Studies conferences and conducts SAT® and AP® workshops for students throughout the United States.

The 4th edition of REA’s Crash Course for AP® U.S. History is based upon Mr. Krieger’s intensive study of the current APUSH Framework and released tests. He field-tested the materials in this book with students taking his APUSH prep courses. During the past five years, 90 percent of these students scored a 5, with the rest scoring a 4.

REA’s AP U.S. History Crash Course is the first book of its kind for the last-minute studier or any AP student who wants a quick refresher on the course.

The Crash Course is based upon a careful analysis of the most recent AP U.S. History Course Description outline and available official AP test questions.

Written by a nationally-recognized AP U.S. History expert who has studied the content and format of the latest exam, our easy-to-read format gives students a crash course in the major ideas and events in U.S. history. The targeted review chapters offer students a concise way to learn all the important AP material before test day.

Unlike other test preps, REA’s AP U.S. History Crash Course gives you a review specifically focused on what you really need to study in order to ace the exam. Our review is broken down into specific topics based on the nine historical periods outlined by the College Board.

The book begins with a discussion of seven keys for success and a glossary of 60 AP U.S. History terms you absolutely, positively have to know followed by review chapters arranged in chronological order. Each chapter presents only the essential information tied to each time period in U.S. History.

The Crash Course concludes with chapters that present strategies for successfully answering all the different question types on the exam—everything from the multiple-choice questions to the document-based essay question.

No matter how or when you prepare for the AP U.S. History exam, REA’s Crash Course will show you how to study efficiently and strategically, so you can boost your score.

To check your test readiness for the AP U.S. History exam, either before or after studying this Crash Course, take REA’s FREE online practice exam. To access your practice exam, visit the online REA Study Center at and follow the on-screen instructions.

This true-to-format test features automatic scoring, detailed explanations of all answers, and diagnostic score reporting that will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses so you’ll be ready on exam day.
