I feel your pain! I have the SATs in May too and 6 APs (including World History) so I'm dead too. The Barron's book is very, very good. Read it and do some research and find a timeline on the basic stuff that happened. I also hear that Peterson's includes useful charts comparing the civilizations. Basically 1700 AD onwards are pretty easy (from what I gather). Big topics for those units: Industrial Revolution, development of democracy, imperialism, colonial independence movements, and you should probably already know the basics about modern stuff (like WWI, the Depression, WWII, Cold War, etc). I tried a copy of the 2002 exam and it was not that bad! Some of the questions basically give away the answers and don't require historical knowledge; others you can guess by the basic trends of history; the rest are pretty general.

So don't worry! It's all good! Ooh, and if it makes you feel better - for the 2002 test, 40 right, 20 wrong, 10 omitted, and 5 (out of 9) on all three essays got a 4!
