[This book] was designed to be used by students as a review text in the weeks prior to taking the AP U.S. history examination in May. At the same time, the book was also conceived as a guide to accompany a year-long course in AP or honors U.S. history. It may be used to bridge the gap between the typical textbook used in these courses and the needs of AP history candidates, who must be able to deal successfully with a challenging exam.-Pref.

As a current high school student using this book for my AP U.S History course, it is a good book to use for someone's further studies towards the AP Exams, however, I urge students and teachers to read carefully because the book may offer a clear overview of history, yet, it might misinterpret history also; specifically speaking on behalf of the Second Amendment. The creators of the book might not have misinterpreted the Second Amendment on purpose, however, this slip up can give the wrong idea to students and future generations which is detrimental to the initial purpose of the Second Amendment.

Communist tripe, lies.
The textbook notes the Second Amendment as, "The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia."
The actual Second Amendment reads, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
So, the premise is to re-write the Bill of Rights? Nothing screams insanity like trying to re-write history to fit an anti-freedom of rights Communist agenda.
