Why is this service better than other services for AP World History?
Our videos provide you hours of watching the pros handle the big topics throughout World History and drawing links that you'll need to understand in order to ace the AP exam. Let's be honest, this class covers an outrageous amount of information, and we know a little help in breaking that info down for you into digestible chunks will go a long way towards helping you rock the AP exam in May.
I'm taking AP World History in school, so why do I need to review it?
Or better yet, your teacher might even offer his/her own review! But still, we want you to have review lessons at your fingertips throughout the year, and let you hone in on what you really need to study. It's never too early to start reviewing, and getting a little extra help. Come May, you are going to need to brush up on the lessons you learned in the fall. We'll be here. All year long for you to view and review to your heart's content.
How'd you find the teachers for this class?
We went through a rigorous interview process, after looking for the most qualified teachers out there. We wanted someone who had demonstrated excellence in education, and had a TON of experience teaching AP courses to not only students but new AP teachers.
Does this cover everything that will appear on the AP World History test?
We can't guarantee that this year won't be a “throw you for a loop year”, but our content covers the entire syllabus published by the College Board.
How does this help me prepare for the free-response section?
You have the opportunity to scan in your free-response answers and have them hand-graded for an extra fee.
