American History

American history covers the historical events and figures that have affected the progression of the United States of America. A typical American history course covers topics such as the Colonial period, the struggle for independence, the creation of a national government, westward expansion, the Civil War, the Great Depression, the presidents, and various other events and figures.

Test Trade offers a study guide and a set of practice test questions in American history. The study guide covers the Colonial era, the birth of the nation, expansion and reformation, reconstruction, the Great depression, World War I and II, America as a global power, the Cold War, and various time periods from the 1920s to the 1990s.

The practice test provides 400 multiple-choice questions for students to study. The practice questions provide students with the opportunity to understand what will be covered in an American history course and also a means to assess their own current knowledge. In addition to multiple-choice questions, students should be prepared to answer true/false questions, provide short answers in phrases or sentences, and write essays.

Students can use the study guide and practice questions to create timelines and a key terms list. For instance, it may be helpful for students to create a timeline to help memorize the order of the presidents of the United States. Timelines may also help to organize important events such as wars and economic climates. Students should be able to explain the significance of terms such as Communism, the Cold War, industrialism, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. By combining the information in the study guide and in the practice exam, students can gain a comprehensive understanding of American history.
