Knowing the U.S. presidents and their terms in office, and the sequence in which they served, is immensely helpful as a framework for studying and being informed about American history. After a brief introduction, Track 1 lists the presidents and lets you match them up by term in office; the narrator says each president's name and pauses a few seconds for you to say the term of office. Track 2 does the reverse, letting you test yourself on the term in office and then the name of that president. Track 3 names the presidents and lets you say the vice president (or vice presidents) that served under them. The next section provides a series of tracks that cover nine groupings of presidents with brief details about each one: Founding Fathers; Westerner and Maintainers; Civil War and Aftermath; Gilded Age; Return to Greatness; the Under-rateds; America Joins the World; Return of the Optimists; and the Skeptic. Perfect for students, people interested in history and geography, and listeners in general interested in becoming better informed.
