In today's world, we cannot afford not to know.
This guide prepares students for the AP Human Geography Exam. It focuses on spatial organization--the location of places, people, and events, and the connections among places and landscapes that shape virtually all human endeavors on the planet. It includes narrative reviews for each of the topic areas of the AP Human Geography curriculum. Each unit is followed by new multiple-choice and free-response questions. The narratives are concise and focus specifically on topics from the AP curriculum.
"World history" covers a lot of ground, both in terms of land space and time. Students learn the broad "story" of humanity by using some tools provided in the book that help to connect the parts of the story from beginning to end (or present).
