5-0 out of 5 stars it's a very good book to use
I chose this book over many others was because i read the reviews other people wrote about this book, and it was very helpful. So thank to all of you who put your thoughts down!!
5-0 out of 5 stars YOU MUST BUY THIS!
This book was excellent.
5-0 out of 5 stars GET THIS BOOK
If you are getting ready to take the AP PSYC exam you need to get this book. It contains quizzes on each section of psychology and two practice full length tests at the end. It also has very helpful tips for writing essays. I took the AP exam in the spring of 2005 and got a '5'. I am now a freshman neuroscience major at the University of Delaware (one of the best schools for psychology and neuroscience) and have passed both of my two psychology classes with A's (the highest grade). This book is a must have and I refer to it often. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great book, buy it!
honestly, i didn't pay any attention at all in my ap euro class. but a month before the test, realizing i didn't know anything, i bought this. though it doesn't cover all the facts in enough detail, if you know this book you can still pull off a 5, and who can remember all the details anyway? the practice tests are easily the best availible too. and trust me, if i can scrape a 5 with this book, so can you!

It's a great book, however, the facts are too consice. It would be great if it had more meat, however, the practice tests are great. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Better Than I Expected
When I bought this book, I wondered how a book could help you review for the AP Lit exam, since there are no facts to really cover like in other exams.However, this book is extremely useful for those seeking a high score.It brings you step by step through the process of writing prompts, pointing out important details and giving a plethora of examples.The tips on the multiple choice questions allow you to review all the major terms you need and offers many opportunities to test yourself, with the why behind the answer included.Plus, you will feel better about the test because it is written by a former test writer.This makes it feel like you can trust what he is saying about the test, and I do not remember him being wrong once when it came to the actual exam.In conclusion, buy this book or don't buy one at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Reasonable, though slightly outdated

1-0 out of 5 stars Very frustrating
I am a first year Ph.D. student, and I find this book quite frustrating to read. The reading drags on and on, and I can't really remember what I read. The examples in the book are somewhat helpful, but they do not seem to fully explain the concepts very well. I hope the next edition will have a more comprehensive explanations for the concepts in the book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Cram101 should be Scam101
This book consists entirely of glossary entries on the even pages and blank note pages as the odd pages. The glossary entries appear to have been automatically computer-generated for the big words in the text, as the definitions tend to be standard dictionary definitions without consideration of any of the rich context of the Shadish et al. textbook. Many of the glossary terms are medical terms such as clinical depression, chemotherapy, spinal cord, phenylketonuria, etc., which demonstrates the mindless compilation of this outline.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very informative.......
but very boring too!Actually, that's not completely true, it's just the first few chapters that are excruciatingly boring, but once you get past all the introductory material, it's quite informative.I'm reading this right now for my graduate course in experimental design, so I most likely found the first few chapters as boring as I did because I already knew the stuff.Although some pictures would be nice, and I'm talking about more than just the illustrations that they use to...uh... "illustrate" different experimental designs, it's nice that there's not a bunch of fluff to sort through looking for the information that is actually important.It's a well written and pretty easy to comprehend must have for those of in the wacky world of experimental studies. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars SPOILER ALERT
I'm only writing this to warn you that the review right below mine (if it hasn't been removed) has MAJOR SPOILERS.It reads like a book report and gives away the entire book.I guess that's great if you want to know what your kid is reading, but terrible if you wanted to read the book yourself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Long -awaited Sequel to "Charmed Life" Does Not Disappoint
Nearly a year after the events of "Charmed Life," Cat Chant has settled into Chrestomanci Castle and learned some mastery over his own powerful magic.During the summer holidays, the young enchanter faces new challenges that range from learning how to ride his capricious horse, Syracuse, to caring for a mysterious egg that has been given to him by his new friend, Marianne Pinhoe.And then there's that magical barrier in the woods . . . a barrier that seems designed less to keep strangers out than to keep even stranger things in.

4-0 out of 5 stars Exam Style
This book is a hasty review of Orgo, but it covers most of the MCAT material in relatively small number of pages. Although some diagrams are not very helpful, it tells you most of what you need. It is basically a good book if you are a time-pressed pre-med trying to take the MCAT in 2 months. If you have more time, I recommend reading over your orgo textbook once more and doing problem sets in various other MCAT preparation materials (the ones with only MCAT style problems). Hope this helps.

2-0 out of 5 stars Decent
This book was decent in that it reviewed some of the fundemental concepts necessary for the MCAT.However, most of the questions were too easy, and none resemble the format of an actual MCAT question (not passage based).There were some errors, but easy to identify.The book was worth having for extra practice if you have the money, but don't expect much.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect practice problems for MCAT
Practice is the key to the MCAT.Review is an essential first step, but is only part of the complete preparation for the MCAT.ORGO 1001 will help you guys ace the Biological Science questions.Everything from stereochemistry to lab techniques is in this book.There are over 90 stereochemistry questions alone.This book won't guarantee a 15, but it may help raise your score a couple points. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Fight for Freedom
This book has a very powerful message to it.This made me think about all the things that I take for granted.With Amari beingfifteen, I can relate to her.Usually you can not find books like this now a days. This book makes me think more about how lucky I am and how there are kids in the world that aren't as fortunate as I am.Sharon knows how to grab the readers attention. My friends and I are not big readers and we thought this book was good, and it is one of the very few books that we can stand to read.Drapers knows how to catch your wondering eye because whenIsaw this book on the amazon website I wanted to read it and I was not really interested in reading any other books.
5-0 out of 5 stars VEEEEEEEEEEERY Good!
Copper Sun was an exceptional book.I completely fell in love with it.The characters were well developed, the plot wasn't very predictable, and it gave me a sense of awe and wonder when I finished it. The book is under the genre of historical fiction and is about a 15 year old slave girl who was captured and sold into slavery from her native home in Africa.However, this isn't your typical fly-away-to-freedom slavery book.Amari, the maincharacter, was raped and brutally beaten before she escaped to freedom with her white friend and a young boy.Sharon Draper offers two perspectives-that of Amari and of her white comrad Polly.Ironically instead of escaping to the North, they escape to the South where a non-discriminatory fort exists.There all are free and equal which is extremely uncommon during the year 1738.I won't tell anymore-you have to read it for yourself!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best review book for AP US History
This is with no doubt the best review guide that you can buy for AP US History, if you use it to its full potential, no questions asked.
3-0 out of 5 stars Review section was okay, practice tests were lacking
I really didn't go through this book as much as other prep books. The review section, while lengthy, lacked information on specific historical figures and left out many of the unifying themes that are indispensable when writing essays for the exam. At best, I skimmed some of the sections, but I found some irrelevant information. This book is great if you have lots of time on your hands to read all of the review section carefully. As for me, I found the information presented in a less than stimulating manner and I ended up relying on course-notes outlines, rereading my American Pageant, the Princeton Review book and my teacher's afterschool review sessions.

Editorial Review

It's meant for high schoolers, but adults who haven't inhaled chalk dust for years might appreciate it even more. The process of organizing, researching and writing a paper is laid is out in easy-to-understand normal-speak. The chapters on grammar and usage are very user-friendly, and lots of extras (suffixes, parliamentary procedure, periodic table, metric system, the U.S. Constitution, world maps, etc.) make this an extraordinarily popular and useful household item. If you're feeling generous, you might even let the kid take it to school on occasion. ... Read more

When my daughter entered high school, her English teacher recommended this book and informed the parents that it would become the "bible" for writing papers.How correct she was!!! This book was used extensively by my daughter in high school. Now that she is away at college and took it with her, I purchased another one for my son.I believe it is the most used book in our house, besides the dictionary.No one can write a paper correctly without owning this resource.

Cole has many problems. His dad beats him, his mom says nothing about it, so his anger towards his parents is taken out on the world, and specifically at a schoolmate, Peter.

When Cole is put into a detention center, Garvey, a man working at the detention center, tells Cole about a Tlingit Indian justice ritual called Circle Justice. Cole will do anything to get of prison. He agrees to his terms and is sentenced to a year of banishment on an island off the coast of Alaska. There he encounters a Spirit Bear. After almost being killed by it, Cole is left thinking about his life, his choices, and the healing ramifications of Circle Justice.

Small Steps is a book about a boy named Thedore(Armpit) who tries to turn his life around. While doing so, his friend X-Ray gets him into this scheme to sell tickets to the biggest popstar sensation, Kaira DeLeon. Miraculously, through his disabled nieghbor he develops a relationship with Kaira.
4-0 out of 5 stars An Awsome book
The book small steps is Awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have all ready recomended it to my whole class. I think this book was very adventueres but still could have happend. Pleeeeeeease make a sequel to this book

3-0 out of 5 stars A Little Boring
Small Steps is too predictable in the first half. You can tell what is going to happen with X-ray and Armpit trying to sell the scalped tickets but it takes too long to get there. The second half is where it gets exciting and unpredictable. In the first half you see the puzzle pieces before they're in, in the second half puzzle pieces come flying in from all different directions. Will X-ray and Armpit sell the scalped tickets? Is Armpit in love with Tatiana, a girl at school, or the famous singer Kaira DeLeon? I think it has too much bad language and in a competition Holes would win 24-7. Others may disagree but this is what I think. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cut
The book Cut is a good book to read if you are going threw the same as Callie the main Character. Callies way of dealing with things going in her life but cutting herself. I thought that cut was an extremly good book. I felt like i could connect to what Callie was going threw.

3-0 out of 5 stars Cut
The book Cut is good for anyone who likes books about over coming problems. If you like other books by Patricia McCormick like my brother's keeper, Cut is right for you. In my opinion this book was dry and boring in many places. But there were some parts, you had to keep reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars Something from a very deep sleep.
What a strange, dark, pretty thing. Before I was buried under The Bible and other such required college reading this year, I took a couple of days to loose myself in this book. It's a rare and wonderful thing for one to find part of his or her own subconscious tucked into someone else's pages. A book for those of us reared on Grimm's fairy tales and English ballads. I don't know how to recommend things, but perhaps if you loved Steppenwolf and Sandman, fairy stories and The Mystery of Harris Burdick, you may love this as well. It is the kind of story one would expect their cat to relate after a late night out.

2-0 out of 5 stars Neil GAHman: Flat characters, dull plot, poor prose
I'd heard so much hype about Gaiman that I finally decided to check out his supposed masterpieces of dark fantasy.
5-0 out of 5 stars I am lost in this new world and dont want to be found!
I found this book accidently and did not expect to like it.I loved it and want more, more, more.Neil Gaiman's mind scares me a little but the creativity and feeling that the characters in this world generate are wonderful and so much like the "real" world only under eschewed circumstances to say the least.I loved all of the characters.The nasties found in this book were so unbelievably nasty and the good folks were good even if in a somewhat flawed way as most of us are.

4-0 out of 5 stars the carnivorus carnival
"Rraww," growled the prowling lions in this book, The Carnivorous Carnival. When this book begins, Violet, Sunny and Klaus are trapped in Count Olaf's car trunk as they go to Madam Lulu's carnival. At the carnival, it is weird. The Baudelaires worked at the House of Freaks, where people make fun of them.Also there were deadly lions there too, which ate people, a dangerous roller coaster, andMadam Lulu's strange crystal ball. Eventually Count Olaf decide to put the House of Freaks in the lion's den.The other freaks must fight the Baudelaires. None of the freaks falls into the lion's den.The Baudelaires barely escape, but with Count Olaf. I'd recommend this book because it is suspenseful, humorous and has interesting characters.
5-0 out of 5 stars freaks and fear and the breaking of formula
Here is the ninth volume in Lemony Snicket's bestselling children's collection A Series of Unfortunate Events.

With The Carnivorous Carnival They arrive at the Caligari Carnival out in the middle of the hinterlands and are able to get out of the trunk before Count Olaf discovers them. Klaus, Violet, and Sunny disguise themselves as Carnival Freaks so that they can stay at the Carnival and have the opportunity to discover some facts about the possibility of one of their parents still living and the rest of the "Snicket File". Klaus and Violet are disguised as a Two-Headed Freak Beverly / Eliot, Sunny is Chabo the Wolf Baby. They join with other freaks, like Kevin the Ambidextrous Man, Colette the Contortionist, and Hugo the Hunchback.
5-0 out of 5 stars Mr. Snicket's Best
In the ninth installment of the Series of Unfortunate Events, The Carnivorous Carnival, Mr. Snicket leaves behind the basic kids get a new guardian, Count Olaf tries to get them once again outline of the first eight books. This is the first book in the series where the Baudelaires are guardianless. Instead, they find themselves stuck in a sinister plot involving Count Olaf and his troupe, an enigmatic fortune teller, and one damn creepy carnival. This book is quite well-written, and Tim Curry perfectly depicts the sinister quality on the book-on-tape version.
