Editorial Reviews

The Princeton Review realizes that acing the U.S. History exam is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about U.S. history--only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the Virginia SOL EOC U.S. History, TPR will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and:

  • Remember important historical facts using TPR's Big Picture approach to studying
  • Eliminate incorrect answer choices by using Process of Elimination and other techniques
  • Master the most frequently tested material with TPR's U.S. History Hit Parade
  • Test historical knowledge with review questions that cover each time period tested

***This book includes 2 full-length simulated exams. All of TPR's sample test questions are just like the ones test takers will see on the actual End-of-Course U.S. History exam, and TPR fully explains every solution.
