Nothing good on TV? Welcome to the wonderful world of, um, World History.
Shmoop's AP World History guide shows you why "revolution" is a dirty word, what exactly was happening behind closed portholes on the HMS Beagle, and—of course—how to kick butt on the AP exam.
Specifically designed for mastering the AP World History exam. Learn about things that happened before humans invented the wheel, how to "craft a historical argument" without getting belligerent, and why you should save U.S. history for that other AP test.
Curious about what it is really like to answer 70 multiple-choice questions in 55 minutes and answer 3 free response problems in another 130? Take a full-length practice exam with Shmoop... and then take another two. Because we have three.
IIf you forget everything you read approximately three seconds after you read it, never fear: refine your mad world history skills with drills, more drills, and—you guessed it—even more drills.
Check out our in-depth study guide and practice problems galore on each of the topics.
