Okay, so this really doesn't look like much at first, and to some may even be considered a bit useless. This is really not the case. **** tl;dr people -- Just get it. It will save your behind when you're reviewing for your APUSH exam, so really. Get it. **** Barron's APUSH Flash Cards are probably one of the best products that I have gotten for school yet; it contains 500 different flash cards, which are numbered (always a plus!), with brief yet in-depth content about each of the terms. The APUSH Exam, as said by my teacher, picks its content and questions from hundreds of different terms in any random order. These cards will be a great resource to test your memory, insight, and determination (mostly determination...). Each card has a hole in the corner that can be attached to this neat little ring so you can easily flip through each card, one by one (of course not ALL of them at once!) -- very handy for quick on-the-go study sessions. Of course, they can be tough to handle if you take them out of the box and spread them out, so unless you're one of those OCD people like me who just HAVE to have every card back in order, I suggest keeping the cards in the nifty little box in which the cards came; it'll save you all of the trouble of scrambling about for a lost card with a very important term on it. **** Of course, it seems a bit ridiculous to attempt memorizing FIVE HUNDRED (500 -- for those of you who don't like words) different vocabulary words, events, pieces of legislature, figureheads, etc., but don't worry; you don't NEED to know every single thing. This is just a simple resource out there for people to study over a long period of time before the exam. It may not seem like it, but over time these things will begin to sink in and on the day of the exam, you might think to yourself, "Hey! I remember this from my flash card!" ... If you're taking APUSH right now, keep a look out for this little box of flash cards. Next to your NASH textbook, this will be one of your best resources when preparing for the exam. If you're planning on taking APUSH sometime during your high school curriculum, all the better. Try to study these on the side with whatever content you're currently learning so that you can get a head start with the course's content. Well, that's it for my super-long review... (>__

I had left studying for the AP U.S. Exam until the last week (as usual) when I came upon these cards. My AP U.S. History teacher wasn't really much of a teacher, so I didn't know much, but studying these cards really helped! Alot/Most of the multiple choice section can be lowered down to simple recognition, which these cards can definitely help you with. However, they didn't really help me with the FRQ section- to get a good score I had to mention more facts than were included on the cards- but for the multiple choice section these cards were great.

While these cards are awesome for quick reference instead of a book, they don't really help you comprehend as much as you would by reading. The cards have watered-down facts on them. My history teacher gives us practice AP tests and these cards didn't help me as much as I'd hoped. The index also doesn't include a lot. If you are in desperate need of cramming, I would recommend these, but get a book instead if you have time to read it.

These cards really helped me remember the material while I was studying for my AP U.S. History Exam, perfect for easy memory recall. The material within the cards were very useful and on point, valid information as well, I highly recommend these flashcards.

This collection was a true help in studying for my AP US History final. Covers a wide range of topics and I was able to touch on the spots I was a bit weak on so the exam went very well. Would definely recommend these to anyone.

I think that these cards were ok but when i bought them i hought there were going to match the textbook i had but i found that the majority of the words that i have had to know have come from www.corse-notes.oeg no these cards. They are useful but if you are buying them for unit exams in your AP class they are not that good.

Last year, I used the World History Flash cards and they helped me get a 4 on the exam. I bought them super close to the exam but I'm sure that if I got them earlier I would have gotten a 5. I got these cards today and they really do help me remember everything my teacher doesn't get to cover or explain completely. They are amazing for the multiple choice section. I used them with the Barron's review book and it was a great help. I am strong writer so I really didn't need to worry as much for that section. However, If you really study, using these cards, you'll have enough information to write a great essay.

All you need is time and dedication.
