I'm going to self study for the APUSH and US Government tests next May, and I have a couple questions on textbooks for the courses.
1. Do you need a textbook for APUSH, or can you just read through AMSCO and REA's Crash Course? I was looking at getting the American Pageant if I need a textbook.
2. For U.S. Government, does it matter if you have the most recent textbook? i was looking at getting "Government in America: People, Politics, and Policy" but I wanted to get an older version if I can.
