By Ethel Wood. Designed to prepare students for the exam by giving them a sound footing in comparative concepts as well as specific information about the six core countries (Great Britain, Russia, China, Mexico, Iran, Nigeria), this thorough study guide also includes two complete practice exams with both multiple-choice and free-response questions. A spiralbound 8½" x 11" teacher's manual (available separately) contains detailed explanations of answers to the questions in the student guide, plus eight tests (one on general concepts, six on the core countries, and a quiz on the European Union), also with answers explained and grading rubrics.
