    Great book, but on page 66 (in landscape view) the graph about Native American, European, and African populations has an error. The first section should say 1492, not 1942. Just so you (the authors/publishers) know. Great book otherwise!
  • Mistakes on the section quiz

    By tdmsu
    I am using this textbook with my students in US history. They caught a mistake in self-check quiz for chapter 20, section 2. The question is: The Fordney-McCumber Tariff was meant to The correct answer is letter c: raise taxes on goods entering the United States, but the quiz claims the answer is b: help Britain and France pay off their war debts. I am glad to have the book in ibooks format, but could the errors be updated?
  • Great Textbook

    By StevenAH
    This is one of the best textbooks for the iPad I have ever seen, hands down. Accurate and well written with lots of interactive videos, audio and illustrations to keep the learning interesting. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has an interest in learning American History!
  • Well done, interactive

    By PhantomFLHS
    This is a highly interactive text that the students love. The audio summary at the chapter start is helpful for struggling readers. The tie in to the History Channel's 'History of Us' helps bring history alive by placing relevant clips in the text, again, allowing students that are more visual to grasp the material and see it in a new way. The only problem is that some review questions at he end of the sections are incorrect, so some proofing is in order. I highly recommend this text. It works well with iPad 3.
  • Eh

    Once I updated to iOS 6 through the OTA, I suddenly have some problems with the interactive sections, like timeline, the Declaration of Independence, etc. Can you fix this bug, please? Thank you.
