    Didn't read my textbook all year long and used the No Bull review book a week before the test, very confident I got a 5. Admittedly I had a 100 average throughout the year but my teacher still said I would struggle on the test having not read. My advice is to save yourself the time reading the book during the year for other things and just extensively review in No Bull a week or two before. My friends' review books were enormous with very extended and overly complicated explanations. The book I used cut all that out and I found it really simple to study.

    edit: my dad got the review book for me, I'm not sure where but try Amazon

    The crash course study book will do. I didn't feel very confident about APUSH (I didn't feel prepared) but the crash course study book got me remarkable results :)
