Post for the Parents

Dear Parents,

As the AP exam approaches it is important that the students do some reviewing on their own.  There are several good study guide books on the market to help them prepare.  We recommend two of them:  5 Steps to a 5 AP World History and Princeton Review AP World History.

We highly encourage you to provide one of these guides to your student especially for the practice tests that each contain.  There is also a guide that contains just practice questions:  Spark Notes AP World History; it is also a good reference.

Thank you,
Chris Peek and Kate Nocca
