    Great way to get a lot of information quickly. There is the ability to categorize the set with handy symbols on the front of each card. This makes it really nice for teaching and learning themes not simply memorizing the information which is helpful for the essay and DBQ portion of the A.P. exam. The cards can also be used in the classroom for review. I have handed out stacks of cards and had students make flow charts for the information so they understand the cause and effect for a series of events. I would suggest this be one of a few review tools and not used alone because it will be harder for students to understand connections of events in this format.

    The notecards are helpful when you need to review information and do not have the time to scour a textbook. The notecards do not cover information in detail(as they are notecards)but they hit the best points which is all you can ask for when you’re in a rush.

    You can organize the information by categories, numbers(dates) and however else you want. They are hole-punched which is so much more helpful.

    The information was pretty helpful especially with information I had forgotten and had never covered. It gave me the basis to do my own studying in the areas I was weak in.

    I would recommend them—if you are actually going to use them.

    Far more helpful than some of the other AP flashcards or study helpers I have looked at. I love that they are divided by time and type of event (economic, presidential, society, ect…). I have found these quite helpful even for studying for tests throughout the year.

    High quality product. Cards are a wonderful tool to memorize everything that was studied in class, and can be used as a very comprehensive and helpful tool to put history in perspective. Cards are a great addition to the AP history book.

    Yeah…

    Don’t use these alone, read your textbook if not a review book. Do plenty of DBQ’s. These do help.

    But i stress (again) do not use them alone.

    I got a 4. I got lucky too.

    overall, these cards are good but no great. they cant replace a prep book. they do a great job in reviewing the major ideas and concepts, but the lesser ones that the ap test might pick the cards arent much help there. and also, i didnt really like the format of teh cards. the bullets on the back aren’t really bullets. they’re like mini-paragraphs preceded by a dot.

    The set of AP history cards are fairly good to study off of, but the price is a little high for something that most likely has been printed for several years. A list of all the card subjects and the cards numbered would have been a nice touch.

    This is literally the best review of US History. I felt yesterday that I knew no US History and I had my final exam at third. That night as well as before third I had gotten through the cards three times and knew the answer to every question on the exam. There is nothing better. If you want a 5 get these cards immediately. Great for a quick rview before the exam and a great value. These cards saved my life.

    These cards are a really great addition. Highly recommend them for group studies or just easy practice whenever and wherever and a great way to see how much you KNOW about each specific topic instead of just reading a book and hoping you retain it.

    My daughter’s Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH)teacher recommended these cards as a study aid. In the first three weeks, they already showed their value. My daughter had a unit test and was the only student in the class to have purchased these cards. The teacher, in preparing the students for studying, asked if anyone had purchased the cards. To those students, she recommended the relevant numbered cards for study. There were questions on the test that my daughter knew as a direct result of having reviewed with these cards. We are very pleased with our purchase and would recommend these review cards to anyone taking Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH).

    **Also this item was $8 cheaper at Amazon.com vs. the local chain bookstore.**

    Really helpful, but these are flash cards and they do not replace knowing the material in depth.

    I purchased these cards for my daughter when she was taking AP US History 2 years ago and now my son is taking the same course. Both of my kids use these as one of their primary study guides. My daughter got a 5 on her AP exam and B+ / A- during her AP US History class her Jr. year of high school. My son just got a B on his AP US History mid term for his class as well as his buddy who borrowed the cards to study with. Needless to say, these cards are quite helpful! My only complaint is that they aren’t numbered so keeping them in order can be a bit tricky if you aren’t meticulous with them. Put the card after it sideways, always, and it will be fine.

    I got these for my son who is a good student (A- or B+) in history and he found them very helpful. Not a replacement for studying the material but a very good review before the exam. They are color coded on the edges for different time periods so you can take just the blue ones for one era, or the yellow ones for another time period. He went through them all and selected the ones he needed the most and just kept them with him for a few days. He took the SAT and AP US history exams. The SAT he found pretty easy, but the AP test was hard – mainly because of the essays. These cards helped on the multiple choice.

    Most of cards contain much more than just a date or name, they have a little paragraph summarizing the facts (including dates and names) in context. They cover social and political movements not just events or famous people.
