History of the Twentieth Century

Release Date: 2014-06-05

The 20th century has been one of the most unique in human history. It has seen the rise of some of humanity’s most important advances to date, as well as many of its most violent and terrifying wars. This is a condensed version of renowned historian Martin Gilbert’s masterful examination of the century’s history, offering the highlights of a three-volume work covering more than 3,000 pages. From the invention of aviation to the rise of the Internet, and from events and cataclysmic changes in Europe to those in Asia, Africa, and North America, Martin examines art, literature, war, religion, life and death, and celebration and renewal throughout the world, and throughout this turbulent and astonishing century.

Hack the FSOT Biographic Questionnaire Edition

Author: L. Wilson
Publisher:
ISBN: 1537592033
Release Date: 2016-07-24
Genre:

I went from failing the Foreign Service Officer Test to scoring in the top 1-2% of all takers. I increased my score by more than 40 points, and improved almost 25 points on the Biographic Questionnaire alone. I've combined background information on the test with practical advice. This book will help you to pass, especially if you've struggled with the Biographic Questionnaire in the past.This book is also poorly written, disorganized and relentlessly inaccurate, written episodically as a stream-of-consciousness monologue, riddled with poorly cited and irrelevant research, lame attempts at humor, and obscure pop culture references that have been painfully and awkwardly insinuated into the text solely for the author's amusement and which will be noticed by very, very few. For some idiot reason, there are a few social media-style hashtags included in it. Probably most damning of all, the author's use of the Oxford comma is inconsistent, for which there is a special place in hell. Keep in mind, this is not a review, this is just the author's description. Enjoy.

Genre: Political Science

FSOT Practice Questions are the simplest way to prepare for the FSOT test. Practice is an essential part of preparing for a test and improving a test taker's chance of success. The best way to practice taking a test is by going through lots of practice test questions. Taking lots of practice tests helps ensure that you are not surprised or disappointed on your test day. Our FSOT Practice Questions give you the opportunity to test your knowledge on a set of questions. You can know everything that is going to be covered on the test and it will not do you any good on test day if you have not had a chance to practice. Repetition is a key to success and using practice test questions allows you to reinforce your strengths and improve your weaknesses. Detailed answer explanations are also included for each question. It may sound obvious, but you have to know which questions you missed (and more importantly why you missed them) to be able to avoid making the same mistakes again when you take the real test. That's why our FSOT Practice Questions include answer keys with detailed answer explanations. These in-depth answer explanations will allow you to better understand any questions that were difficult for you or that you needed more help to understand.
