Reviews of AP Review Books for United States History, English Language, and Psychology

Hey everyone! This post contains reviews of all the AP review books I used this year. I used three for AP United States History, one for AP English Language and Composition, and one for AP Psychology. I scored 5’s on all of my exams. I hope this is helpful!

I contribute a slight portion of my 5 to this book, specifically the practice exams. Continue reading

Immediately I thought to myself,” Why is that depressing, huh? Just because one of your brothers has a slightly higher chance of being homosexual? Does that mean you would stop loving him? That’s so shallow, my goodness…”
