The material in this book covers most things, but very briefly. For example, each historical character might be favored with a sentence or two. For this reason, reading through this book alone will not get you a five, although it probably will gurantee you a four if you read carefully. However, if you sit down and memorize every proper noun in this book, it should be enough for a five.
Our school administered a practice test about a month before the exam. During the day before and of this practice test, I read through the entire review book and actually scored a five. However, during the week of the exam, I went through the book again and took notes on everything I could not describe in enough detail. AP Euro FRQs are extremely detailed, but the multiple choice is relatively okay. I didn't leave any blank and was unsure of about ten.
The practice exams are comparable, although the FRQs are somewhat easier, but it doesn't matter because College Board releases all old FRQ questions on their website.
I also had two other books: Rea and Modern European History by Birdsall S. Viault. Rea is overly detailed. The questions are not realistic at all, being fact-based instead of cause-and-effect based. Modern European History is not a book written for the AP exam. It doesn't make sense to study from this book either, but I would recommend buying it as a reference during the year.
Overall, Princeton Review's Euro AP is quite excellent.
The information reads extremely well and easily. It doesn't seem like you're reading a text book, but more like you're reading a story- and that's the way history should be. The writers seem to be very witty and occasionally throw in jokes, for example: In the passage about Martin Luther, they talked about how he made a promise to God, and then wrote, "Unlike many of you, who will pray for help on your AP exam, Martin Luther actually kept his promise." Little jokes like that will make you laugh right outloud because it's so unexpected for something to actually be amusing while studying.
The only thing I would change about this book is that I would add more practice questions after each chapter. There's only 5 after each chapter, and some of the chapters are pretty hefty and contain a lot of information. But I would most definitely recommend this book, it's great!
