'Are you a history buff fascinated by the rich and varied history of this great nation? Or perhaps you're a student struggling to decipher the timeline and corresponding details of the many milestones that helped to shape America. Either way the McGraw-Hill U.S. History Quiz Set 1 app will prove to be an invaluable tool.
Designed to assess a user's current knowledge of American history and based closely on the actual AP US History test given each year, this application consists of 80 multiple choice questions and provides detailed answers to each one. The application measures your progress as you go along and allows you to save your work, returning later to finish the test at your convenience. It also allows for repeated usage since, once completed, you can scramble the questions and take the test all over again. To minimize frustration, the application also allows the user to skip a question, returning to it at a later time.
The content for this application was created by Stephen Armstrong, author of McGraw-Hill's 5 Steps to a 5: AP U.S. History. Mr Armstrong is an AP History teacher, supervisor of social studies at Hall High School in West Hartford, and an adjunct professor of history at Central Connecticut State University.
With each of 80 multiple choice questions providing 5 possible answers, the McGraw-Hill U.S. History Quiz Set 1 application provides a thorough review of the major events and themes of this country's history. From the settling of the Western Hemisphere and Colonial America in the 1400s to the current circumstances of Modern America, the user's historical knowledge will be challenged and broadened by this dynamic tool. So whether your goal is to achieve your best score on the AP exam or simply to expand your personal knowledge of US History, this application will be an indispensable tool.'
