How does the SAT II World History exam compare to the AP World multiple choice?

I took the AP World exam on May 12 and thought the multiple choice was VERY easy. I finished with about 20 minutes to go.

I haven't forgotten much since and feel prepared for the SAT World this Saturday. However, I'm not sure how much different the tests are. I don't have an SAT II World history prep book and don't intend to buy one. Is going over the material from the AP World Barrons or PR review book sufficient? Is it that much different from the SAT II prep book information?

Also, what happens if you do horrible on an SAT II test? You don't have to show your score do you?

Thanks, btw I'm a sophomore if that helps. Any other tips would be much appreciated :)

    One more thing, how many questions do you think you can miss on the SAT II world to still get an 800?

    Sorry if this isn't in the right category, I just know that most people come to this one :P

    If you take a look at any of the SAT 2 prep books at your local or school library, that will give you a good sense of what the exam will be like. I don't imagine that it will require too much review.
