I have 4th and 5th grade girls who are using this so I will answer from that point of view. A lot of ancient history is not going to be retained at this age, however impressions of major figures and the geography tends to stick. My daughters probably wont be able to tell you what year a king reigned after this but they can tell you all about ancient Egypt and China. We add books from the library to each chapter and I look up videos, and magazines on the topic. Overall I believe if your willing to take that approach with this book then your child will get much more of an history of the time then any textbook is going to give. Children tend to remember stories and fables and this book has them.
The Test and Answer Book:
The questions are well thought out and make the child think, but are not complicated. The questions are completely from the chapter tested on and not prior chapters. I do think that the full 16-20 questions per chapter may be a lot considering some of the chapters the tests cover are not very long. We do use the entire test. We do not test after each chapter typically we test after a subject transitions.
Each Chapter has its own test which includes:
Approx 4-5 Fill in the blank questions
8-10 Multiple choice questions
and 4-7 True/False questions
Easy to use and copy a great compliment to: Story of the World, Volume 1:Ancient Times if you are looking to save a few dollars you could use the Review Questions found in the Activity Book instead of having a traditional test after each chapter. The description given of the product when I purchased it and my use of the Test and Answer Key have been consistent with what I expected to receive.
