I did a project on this song and it taught me more than I ever learned in school lol. I had to research every lyric.

Last year my history teacher showed us a video with this song in it and a bunch of pictures of the events in it... it was awesome.

The song The Presidents by Jonathan Coulton is quite helpful too. I'm using it as my alarm song until the APUSH exam.

@nantsingonyama Ahhh! It's too soon :(

Well we're still learning about the Civil Rights movement so it's gonna be pretty tight....although I'm not too worried personally, it's not too tough to get a 5.

Yeah, I figure it won't be too hard but there is just so much to cover without a whole lot of time. We're somewhere in Nixon right now, but the other APUSH teacher at my school just finished the New Deal yesterday...

Holy crap! That's WWII, the Baby Boom, Vietnam, the return to Conservatism and modern history in a week and a half!

You might have already seen this, but this breaks down the scores so you're not going in so blind: http://apcentral.collegeboard.c...-worksheet.pdf

Yeah, they are completely screwed. and I did actually see it that before. we have mandatory after school practice and thats what we do in most of them.

We discovered this one --> http://sites.google.com/site/mr...istory/dbq-s-1 the other day which helped with the DBQ's, which is apparently one of the harder parts.

@nantsingonyama Yeah, they are completely screwed. and I did actually see it that before. we have mandatory after school practice...

The DBQ is different, although I took European History last year and it's harder for that class so I'm not too worried.

Except nobody knows more than 1% of the words to the song

@1192134 (528491): I think the one you aren't sure about is "Bondo." And you really should know this: You made my day. Thanks. (:

It would be if it taught you the meaning behind the lyrics, but all it does is list things without any detail.
Good song though.

@528491 True, it's a good review then or if you studied the topics it lists

It'd probably be as helpful as the Animaniacs country song then. Which is helpeful, just in a different way. It doesn't teach you anything or help you remember what anything is about, just reminds you those thigns exist.

Reminded me of two and a half men

In my history class junior year we did use it for history lessons lol. We would take ten minutes at the beginning of each class and tell us the meaning behind one of the topics/lines, whatever you want to call them.

way back in highschool my teacher made us memorize the song and list off the significance behind each person/event... It was a ton of fun :)

On the first day of World History, our teacher played this for us. Started a trend for the rest of the year, there was at least one song per unit. My personal favorite was "Rapustin". "Ra-Ra-Rapustin, lover of the Russian queen! There was a cat that really was gone! Ra-Ra-Rapustin, Russia's greatest love machine. It was a shame how he carried on!"

My teacher played that in class one year!

my history teacher made us write our own with stuff that happened from when we were born to present day. it was so cool

I grew up with that song and I still love it.
