The College Board in the United States of America offers an advanced placement course, which deals exclusively with world history. |
5 Steps to a 5 AP World History, 2014-2015 is an ideal book to utilise for students who are planning to appear for this exam. This book not only covers all the important concepts and terms that are outlined in the curriculum, but also offers students the chance to try their hands at a range of tests. While the book begins with a diagnostic test, using which students can judge how much they already know about the subject, the practice tests in the end, offers them the chance to see how much they have understood.
The first chapter of the book is actually devoted to creating a study schedule for the students, which will allow them to utilise their time in the most efficient manner. In order to meet the requirements of different types of students, the book provides three types of study schedules. After this, students can head onto the diagnostic test, post which they can dive into creating strategies and methods of acing the exam. There are also tips and tricks on how to handle each of the questions.
The book has detailed sections on how agriculture and technology developed, as well as how the earliest of civilizations were structured. The rise of the classical civilizations, origins of religions and belief systems including Islam and the growth of the late classical periods have been given a lot of attention. There are also chapters on the growth of China and the modifications in the various European institutions as well as the several empires in the Americas.
The AP World History eBook gives sufficient attention to the rise and fall of empires, slavery, the industrial revolution, and the changing face of world trade. Sections devoted to western imperialism, the world wars, cold war and the various social, technological and global changes will also help the students, in their preparation.
After completing all these sections, the students should certainly attempt both the practice tests. Not only are these tests structured on the exact format of the actual AP tests, but attempting these with a timer, will allow students to get the feel of being in the actual exam hall.
This book has been written by Peggy J. Martin, who currently teaches world history at an advanced placement level at the Texan Del Rio High School. As this book can be downloaded onto laptops, smartphones, Kindle and Blue Fire Readers, students will be able to continue their studies, anytime anywhere.
