I used to say the BEST APUSH Review book was Princeton Review. I thought their content was great, and their practice questions were practical. But now with the restructure - I'm not sure. Lately I have been liking Kaplan. But lately I've been hearing about this book above - Amsco.
Quite a few people have said this was just great! I want to encourage all to get a review book! You need one!

I keep talking about this in US Government - so I wanted to show you! This is my favorite tattoo and I love the message! What I have learned in my short life is you MUST know your rights! People who are in a position of authority - will take advantage of you! Not all, but some! You must be your biggest advocate!
One way you can know your rights is to read the Constitution! Next time you are bored!

Today I showed my government students the two videos below. I called the videos life wisdom. Life is too short. There is no point to learn everything on your own. That is why I love history! You can learn from people! The two guys below have so much wisdom about how to live life! The big idea was find your passion! Do what you love!!!!

This is most of what I've graded this weekend! I have more! I am trying really hard to stay on top of your grades! Your grade is important to me! While I was grading I became very present to something - I was reminded of something.
I have a study tip. Mainly for APUSH, but anyone can do this! Be prepared! When you get work - make it into flash cards or whatever you need! For all my classes I do NOT have you do busy work. All your homework will help you. So don't wait till the test to study it! Study it now!
When I was in my first year of college - we had no homework. We didn't do anything till October. This was strange to me, and I noticed. But then it happened. About Mid October every teacher said we would have a midterm over the first 20 chapters plus their lecture. WHAT!!!! I only had two nights to study. I was freaking out!
I never wanted to experience that again! So after I survived those tests - I would make flashcards of my notes every time after class. I learned in high school I am a flashcard girl! Every time I used them I would pass the test!
High school is a great time to learn how you learn!

There is no point, and others might look at you like you are crazy, but who cares! It is your life! Make it easy! This speaker offers real wisdom!
