Good Studying Books for Ap European History - October 30th 2010, 03:43 AM

Does anyone know any good book brands that can help me to study and get ready for the final for AP European History? I've been doing bad on my tests (well, everyone is) and I want a good study book to study for it as well as preparing for the final. The thing is, there's so many brands , which is the best one? Brands I'm talking about like Princeton Review, Kaplan, Barron's, Cliffsnotes, etc. The site is here by the way that I'm getting these names : http://www.borders.com/online/store/...ype=0&simple=1

If anyone knows any book that helped them a lot or any advice and told me that would be awesome

I like Barron's, I'm not sure how much help they'll be in the previous exams department (the AP board is stupidly restrictive on making past exams available, or even telling teachers what their students scored), but they helped me for other types of tests.

Okay thanks, this is my first Ap class, so I'm new to all this Ap stuff, all I know is that there's so many things to memorize...

My advice would be...skip the CliffsNotes.
For example, at my school, we are not allowed to use those to do anything. So, don't use them, just in case.

If you can, find a study guide that comes with flashcards. It will cost more, but it will be the best money you spend. The reason I suggest this is because you can use them to figure out what you know and what you need to study again. Reading through all your notes for the entire year will be extremely time-consuming, and the study guide is meant to be read throughout the year. Flashcards, however, are very useful in those couple weeks leading up to the exam.


So I will find my fears and face them
I will cower like a dog
I will kick and scream
I will kneel and plead
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm givin' up
