AP® World History

What in the world?


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.

In this guide, you'll learn

  • what happened before humans invented the wheel.
  • how to "craft a historical argument" without getting belligerent.
  • why you should save U.S. history for that other AP test.

The Beatles weren't the only ones talking about a revolution.
