i have a semester final on chapters 1-24 and im just wondering which chapters i should actually read rather than reading the notes :rolleyes: thanks
Procrastination sucks, huh? (It's okay, I can relate....)
I would recommend (if you only have a week or so to prepare) reading the notes and getting a complete grasp on them and then supplementing what you didn't quite understand with the book. It's just SO MUCH information - I couldn't begin to tell you individual chapters that are/aren't important. Just understand main concepts and then go back and get the "little details".
I liked what dimmick (I'm pretty sure it was him (?)... sorry for my less-than-perfect quoting ;) ) recommended in another post --- know all of the presidents/their platforms/points of view/etc. and then go from there --- it really helps everything fall into place....
Hope I helped a little....
By the way... it was dimmick.... see "Test Taking Tips" for what he actually said (the meaning was - how shall I put it? - "Lost in Translation")
I believe this is the post you're looking for:http://z6.invisionfree.com/ApNotes/index.p...post&p=11891101
And yes, I recommend getting the presidents in order - it really helped me, and often provided a ready-made timeline framework for constructing essays on tests.
