Shmoop Launches AP World History

Shmoop Helps Students Pass History So They Are Not Doomed to Repeat It

Mountain View, California (October 31, 2011) – Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, announces the launch of Shmoop AP World History at As the twelfth major subject area guide available on the site, AP World History is bursting with a wealth of information about our storied—and sometimes sordid—past.

Remember how much there was to learn in your US History class? A lot, right? Believe it or not, there is even more material to cover when you’re studying the history of every single country in the world since the beginning of time. Go figure.

Shmoop’s brand-new section simplifies and summarizes the key people and events as much as possible, providing students with the whos, whats, and wheres they need to conquer the AP World History exam.

Each chapter is broken down chronologically, and each time period covers the key themes that students need to know to ace the AP exam. Have your nagging questions finally answered:

  • How many different uses were there for Egyptian eye makeup?
  • What do the Industrial Revolution and Thomas the Tank Engine have in common?
  • How much of a mark did Genghis Khan leave on today’s population?
  • Was Napoleon taller than what the history books indicate?
  • Samurai v. medieval knight – who would have kicked whose butt?

Shmoop also provides timelines and lists of key terms for each subsection, giving the reader a pretty sweet overview of everything that has ever happened, globally and historically speaking. Most of the juicy stuff, anyway.

Become master of your own domain with our guide to AP World History.
