Study Guide

The Official Study Guide can be found here.

The Study Guide is broken into different chapters for different portions of history. Each chapter is broken into sections based on what happened in those sections of history and what are the most important “themes” of that time period.

Reading about these themes should allow you to think of history not just as a set of facts to memorize, but will give you a greater understanding of historical progress and the truly BIG concepts that tie those facts together.

Remember—while this Study Guide should get you started, there is so much more to history than what’s in those ten pages. The Study Guide is a compass, pointing each National History Bee student in the right direction on their quest for history knowledge!
