How easy is to SAT II US history for an international that never studies US History?

<p>So I am getting a conflict in test dates so I was thinking in self studying for the </p>

<p>SAT II US History</p>

<p>How easy is it?</p>

<p>Do you think an international good student (top 5%) can easily handle it?</p>

<p>It seems easy from what ive seen</p>

<p>It is actually a pretty difficult test, especially if you have never studied US History. I know people who did poorly after taking AP. I don't recommend self-studying it unless you plan to spend a lot of time with it. I guess you could try to memorize a comprehensive prep book with substantial diligence.</p>

<p>can you recommend some god prep books? do such books as kaplan US History contain all the needed information for the test or do I need some additional books with history facts? I plan to spend 3-4 months several hours a day preparing myself for this test(actually now I don<code>t know anything about US History) and I</code>m rather good at memorizing History facts so the only problem for me is to find good books for preparation. do you know any?</p>

<p>I didn't use any prep book for review, so I can't really give suggestions. Kaplan's book is pretty thick though (I used it for practice tests), so it should cover a lot of the necessary material.</p>

<p>My advice: use REA for the AP US history test. I found that the questions, even though they were aimed at AP, were actually rather similar to the SAT II questions.</p>

<p>How complicated is it?</p>

<p>IT seems pretty easy from what I have seen.</p>

<p>I am used to IB level tests so I am finding the SAT II pretty easy.</p>

<p>Yes, use REA for AP US. The tests are not that hard really. The US History Test just covers a lot of material you must memorize.</p>

<p>it is pretty difficult.</p>

<p>it asks fine details. it's pretty easy if you had a good class on ap ush.</p>
