The Geography Book We've Been Waiting For!

This book is exactly what I needed several years ago, when my son was studying for the State Geography Bee. It is so helpful to have so many questions (with answers!), in such a user-friendly format. The study tips are useful,too. Having compared this book to the one published by the National Geographic Society, this one has a lot more study questions and preparation tips. This is the book I'm now recommending to anyone interested in the Geography Bee. I'll be using it with my daughter!

This book is really great compared to the National Geographic version. My child was in the state level geography bee. This really helped him. It includes terms, tons of questions, and facts about what seems like everywhere in the world. If your deciding between this and the National geographic version buy this one. It has lots more information and questions.
Great help for Geographic Bee

We found this book a great help in our son's preparation for the National Geographic Bee. This book gives a great start to understanding the basics of geography. We only got through part of the book before the school's bee. Next year my son will have completed the book, and the other book of Matt's, "The Handy Geography Answer Book". The combination of these two books will definately increase your childs knowledge of the world. Matt gives some tips on how to do well in the bee, but most of the empahsis is on learing the material. There is no simple way to study for the bee. His advice on narrowing the answers was very helpful. We spent some time on learing the "superlatives". My son did not get any of those questions during the bee, but the knowledge of knowing the tallest, longest, biggest etc... is invaluable.
