    It was a big help. I studied it for an hour right before I took the AP exam and it was really helpful. The cases were explained well, in a way that was simple to understand. I would say that some of the information wasn't useful at all, mainly a lot of the facts for each case, because the ap exam uses broad ideas for each case instead of the fine details that this unnecessarily went into. That being said the information that was needed was in this, it was just in the middle of some less useful stuff. All together I got the information I needed for the test, so I guess it's a good product.
