    1. This was my textbook in sophomore year for AP World History. I loved it! Everything was so interesting and easily understood and the graphics were nice too :D I didn't even mind outlining every chapter. Having a great teacher helped too.

    2. It was very informative, butso. long.That in addition to its (sometimes needlessly) advanced vocabulary and small script made it hell to slog through, even though it was an interesting hell. I read the entire thing, did a review book and got a 5 on the AP exam, so mission accomplished, I suppose. For what it's intended to be, it deserves 4-5 stars. But it IS a textbook. Don't expect it to be fun, especially since it's one of the major reasons I don't read as much for fun anymore.

    3. I usually like history books, but this book was lacking a little. Information wise it was rich, but it falls short of the five star mark. I would have liked it more had the structure of it and layout of it been a bit better.

    4. I was forced to read this book in Freshman year, and I did so--complete with Advil to ward off the migraines and eye drops for my red eyes after all-nighters before tests. Suffice to say that it was miserable, in the process of learning the material.Afterwards, though, I gained a great apprecation for this book. I just graduated from High School and went back to a Freshman classroom and bought the book off some grateful kid for ten bucks. I've begun to read it again, this time with a much more l [...]

    5. What did I think? Well, everyone out there probably doesn't want to read everything I have thought about this book. But now that I am finished I am ecstatic and want to have a party and will never take another AP history class again. Through this book I have discovered that history is definitely not my calling. I just don't enjoy it. Props to people who do; its just not for me. CONGRATULATIONS to anyone who has ever read this textbook, I am glad to join your rankings.

    6. Reading it because my daughter complaints about her APWH teacher does not teach. :-)The reading level is a bit over a high school sophomore, especially for a class that finishes a chapter (20-30 pages) within a week, in about two sessions, with all the quiz and testing time included. Teachers who expect HS students to read the book and get most of it are kidding themselves. As much as I love history and reading, I did not enjoy reading this particular history book. I can understand why some kids [...]

    7. This textbook was the worst thing that ever happened to me.AP World HistorySome chapters were not mind numblingly boring. I loved reading about the Mongols, I think.As the chapter approached more Modern Times, the chapters became overly detailed and lengthy. Yes, we have a lot of information on that time period, but do we really have to know about it? The excess information made me skim around, so I miss important detail that end up on the quizzes my awful teacher gives. This means bad grades. T [...]

    8. I had to read this for my world history advanced placement class this year to prepare us for the exam. Sterns is very thorough with each civilization, and has more information than most textbooks on this subject have. Although it is very fun to read in some places, most chapters are extremely difficult to read as they are so dry and 'boring'. The topic of the paragraphs seem to jump around without cause, leaving the reader wondering if Sterns is still taking about the original subject in the par [...]

    9. I absolutely loathe how long-winded this textbook is. The paragraphs are most definitely not succinct and a few pages could be edited out of each chapter. The entire book focuses more on certain civilizations than others, producing quite an unbalanced view of world history (I mean, how could ANYONE combine the civilizations of Persia, Greece, and Rome into ONE chapter, while dedicating three consecutive chapters to Islam) The only aspects that were helpful in the least were the timelines and voc [...]

    10. My AP World History textbook taught me that being ignorant is very easy if you don't truly understand what has happened before us. The class definitely enlightened me (lol curriculum joke), and I believe that in order to be a civilized representative of planet Earth, you need to know all of the history in this textbook.

    11. I took World History in my freshman year of High-School and I absolutely loved it. Sometimes outlining this book seemed tedious but after I was done with the course, I'd really grown to love this book.

    12. I'm adding this to my "read" list because after taking notes from every page in this book for my A.P. World History class this year, I think of it as an accomplishment :) Haha.
