Overview

The Global History and Geography Regents exam will soon be changing, and Barron's Let's Review: Global History and Geography, 6th Edition, is the book you'll need to prepare for the latest exam. Starting with the June 2018 test, this Regents will have a similar format to the current exam, but it will only test content ranging from 1750 to the present. This edition will cover all of these changes to the exam while reviewing all of the content that you'll need to know to achieve success on this test!

Written by experienced, award-winning teachers of global history from throughout New York State, this edition has been fully updated to review the new test format, cover significant world events from 1750 to the present, and include practice questions as well as a sample Regents test, with answers explained, that is designed to mirror the upcoming June 2018 Global History and Geography Regents exam. This book offers detailed analyses of the following topics:
  • One sample Regents test with all answers thoroughly explained
  • A basic knowledge of world history from 1750 to the 20th century
  • A chronology of war and peace from 1900 to 1945
  • Important world developments since 1945
  • Global connections and interactions in the 21st century

This book is designed primarily to prepare high school students for the Global History and Geography Regents exam, but it will also be helpful to students in their daily Global History and Geography coursework.
