While there might be quite a few students who might be aware of facts like the Boston Tea Party took place in 1773 and that the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, there might still be a lot of facts that they are totally unaware of. For instance, not many high school students would know that the American constitution came into effect in the year 1789. However, for students who do know all this and more, there could be no better choice than studying US History. |
The Advanced Placement United States History course is ideal for such students, as the curriculum covers all the important aspects of the history of the United States of America. With books like 5 Steps to a 5 AP US History with Downloadable Tests, 2014, preparing for an exam that is considered quite difficult, can actually become easy.
The AP US History 2014 – 2015 eBook has been designed to help students prep for the exam in a manner most effective. The opening pages of the book assist the aspirants in setting a proper schedule, which will not only allow them the chance to use their time properly, but also pay attention to the areas that need the same, the most. After setting a proper study regime, there is the added chance of testing the actual amount of knowledge a student has on the subject. The diagnostic tests are a great way to gauge the exact position of an aspirant, vis-à-vis the curriculum.
While there are plenty of strategies and methods of acing the exam, there is no substitute for getting all the information into one’s head. There are several sections in this book and they are devoted to important eras of American history. There are chapters on the British Empire in America, the American Revolution, the establishment of the new political systems and America’s transformation into an industrial giant. There are also sections on the Progressive Era and what all changes came into being, during the World Wars.
The beginnings of Modern America and the Great Depression have also been given a lot of emphasis, as this was the start of the way the country is today. In addition, there is a lot of analysis on the more recent history of the nation and other aspects like terrorism as well as the increase of power in the hands of the president.
After having completed a thorough study of all these sections, students can try completing the two practice tests, provided in the book. As these tests are designed exactly like the AP tests, students can time themselves and get a clear picture of how things might be on the actual test day.
The book has been written by Stephen Armstrong, who is not only an AP history teacher, but also the supervisor of social studies at three schools, including Hall High School. He is also an adjunct professor of the same subject at the Central Connecticut State University.
