Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, has announced the launch of Shmoop AP World History at www.shmoop.com/ap-world-history. As the twelfth major subject area guide available on the site, AP World History offers a wealth of information about our storied - and sometimes sordid - past.
Shmoop's new section simplifies and summarizes the key people and events as much as possible, providing students with the whos, whats, and wheres they need to conquer the AP World History exam.
Each chapter is broken down chronologically, and each time period covers the key themes that students need to know to ace the AP exam. Have your nagging questions finally answered:
--How many different uses were there for Egyptian eye makeup?
--What do the Industrial Revolution and Thomas the Tank Engine have in common?
--How much of a mark did Genghis Khan leave on today's population?
--Was Napoleon taller than what the history books indicate?
--Samurai v. medieval knight - who would have kicked whose butt?
Shmoop also provides timelines and lists of key terms for each subsection, giving the reader an overview of everything that has ever happened, globally and historically speaking. Most of the juicy stuff, anyway.
Help students become masters of their own domain with Shmoop's guide to AP World History.
