Sat 2 World History?!!

<p>Has anyone taken this?</p>

<p>If so..comments? was it hard, easy, what did u get, what was the primary information tested?</p>


<p>i've taken it. i did horribly. i thought i would have gotten 750+, because i got a 5 on the AP. The best advice I can give you is to not rely on your prior knowledge of world history, and actually study the stuff. the curve is also generous :D</p>

<p>i took it, got an 800. i hadnt actually taken any world history courses. jsut AP european history. it was pretty easy</p>

<p>i've looked at it and some of the questions are easy. take it w/o studying because you should do well if you are into history.</p>

<p>hmm i was in euro...but i dont know if i can recall that information anymore lol...</p>

<p>but are there any books u would recommend?</p>

<p>barron's sat II world history & the 22 real SAT IIs published by the College Board</p>


<p>anyone else?</p>

<p>I got 730. Here's a tip: DON'T buy Kaplans, it's a piece of crap. The test in 22 Reals was a good mirror of the actual test (I got 720 on that about a week before the test). Buy some kind of practice book- I don't know, maybe Barrons- and make sure you know all the topics at least at a basic level. Also, if you're good at making smart guesses, that's huge on this test. There are a lot of questions you may not know, but making smart guesses can save you lots of points.</p>

<p>I took it in 9th grade and used Kaplan. I got a 730 on both of the Kaplan pratice tests, and the real thing.</p>

<p>Got a 4 on the AP and a 640 on the test :(
Just study and don't assume that just because you studied for the AP test, you will do fine on the SAT II. I made that mistake and I should've studied for the SAT II from another prep book because it is a little different than the AP.</p>

<p>The test my son took in June had many more questions on Africa than the one in the Real SAT II's. If you are a good visual learner, you could probably pick up a lot of points on the art history questions. Good luck.</p>

<p>well fabulous</p>

<p>thanks guys :)</p>

<p>today i am going to borders to buy a book...
but with so many conflicting opinions who KNOWS which one!!</p>

<p>Is the SATII history test dramatically different from the ap test?</p>

<p>No. Same stuff, a little more in depth. A LITTLE. =) Easy though. I guess on two and got a 760. I bet i got around 5x or so.</p>
