World History For Dummies (Haugen) or Cartoon History of the Universe and Cartoon History of the Modern World (Gonick)
Prior students have recommended the following as study aids to keep all the material straight in the minds, as well as a useful review both for in-class exams and the AP Exam. I have not used all of these and can not personally endorse them, but students have.
