In the increasingly competitive world of college admissions, your score on an AP exam can mean the difference between acceptance into the college of your choice and disappointment. Let the experts at McGraw-Hill help you optimize your study experience and score big on the AP U.S. History exam. This comprehensive app will enable you to assess your current knowledge level, review the relevant subject matter, and test your skills—all at your own pace.
Designed to assess a user's current knowledge of American history and based closely on the actual AP U.S. History test given each year, this application uses an ingenious 5 step method to prepare students for the exam.
The 5-Step Plan helps you get the most out of your study time:
Step 1: Set Up Your Study Program
By delving into the background of the AP U.S History test and scrutinizing the layout of previous tests, users can design a study schedule that works best for them.
Step 2: Determine Your Test Readiness
The app can also be used as a diagnostic tool, assessing a user’s current knowledge level. This section of the app provides 120 questions spanning 22 historical periods.
Step 3: Develop the Strategies for Success
As with all exams, there are certain strategies that savvy students can employ to maximize their chances for success. Different types of questions demand different approaches.
Step 4: Review the Knowledge You Need to Score High
With 499 flashcards, this app provides a thorough review of the major events and themes of this country's history. From the settling of the Western Hemisphere and Colonial America in the 1400s to the current circumstances of Modern America, the user's historical knowledge will be challenged and broadened by this dynamic tool.
Step 5: Build Your Test-taking Confidence
Once you have completed Steps 1 through 4, you are ready to test your knowledge. The app provides a full-length practice test which can be timed just as the official AP exam.
The content for this application was created by Stephen Armstrong, author of McGraw-Hill's 5 Steps to a 5: AP U.S. History. Mr Armstrong is an AP History teacher, supervisor of social studies at Hall High School in West Hartford, and an adjunct professor of history at Central Connecticut State University.

What's New in Version 2.2
Simple and Professional
Exactly what I expected from a textbook company, and definitely a better choice than any third party review app for any subject.
This is a worthy investment for anyone serious about scoring high on the AP exam.
Not worth it
You can get the flash cards from quizlet rather than spending $10 on them. Also the explanations for the answers to questions are not specific or helpful. I was hoping to actually learn from this app but all it does is test how much you already know. Seriously buy a book or just get flash cards on quizlet instead.
These questions are too trivial and specific, not helpful at all.
