High school teachers and students recognize Barron's Let's Review titles as important test preparation books and valuable complements to Barron's Regents Exams and Answers books. They cover the topics specified by the New York State Board of Regents, and contain subject review material with review questions, as well as actual Regents Exams with answers. New editions have been updated to reflect the latest changes in Regents Exam formats. This book reviews the formation of the Constitution and how it was tested during the Civil War. Other major topics include industrialization of the United States, the Great Depression and the New Deal, the United States in an Age of Global Crisis (1933-45), the Cold War and its effects at home and abroad, and the state of the nation through the end of the Clinton Administration.
