Homework Helpers: U.S. History: From the Discovery of America Through the Civil War is the latest book in the popular series designed to help students master the material and tackle the tests. It will help any student learn and remember the many facts about the people, places, and things from Columbus and his fellow explorers to Lincoln, Lee and Grant.

Rote memorization won’t do it. Neither will just timelines and lists. But there are some simple tools that will make history come alive, that will enable any student to manage a vast amount of historical information.

Homework Helpers: U.S. History: From the Discovery of America Through the Civil War is a user-friendly book that will make any student—or those trying to help them—feel like he or she has a private tutor. Each chapter focuses on a major theme and explains it with a variety of diagrams, charts, and maps. Each chapter also contains detailed questions that allow students to assess how well they’ve mastered various concepts. Not only are the right answers to these self-study questions included, but also detailed explanations as to why the wrong answers are wrong.

Whether used as a stand-alone text or to supplement a poorly written or badly organized “official” text, each volume in the Homework Helpers Series is just what students need to boost their confidence and given them the tools they need to succeed in the most challenging classes or on the most difficult tests.

Homework Helpers: U.S. History: From the Discovery of America Through the Civil War is the essential help you need when your textbook just isn’t making the grade!
