Fortunately, there are web resources well-designed to assist instructors in unit and final examination development and help students prepare for what is to come. John Maunu, World History Connected's editor for Web Resources and a recognized authority on that subject, offers the following guide to Nationalism and end-of-term examinations in world history, with special emphasis on the Advanced Placement Examination in World History. Such guides will be a regular feature of this journal]
