Featuring maps, photos, graphs, a variety of questions actually used in past bees, plus an extensive resource section, the guide not only reviews geographic facts but also helps readers recognize themes, identify relationships, and understand how geographers think. In the 4th edition all statistics have been revised to reflect the most up-to-date figures, new question rounds have been added as well as new tips on how to study from Bee winners, and resources have been reviewed to ensure the most current offerings.

Comments about How to Ace the National Geographic Bee: Study Guide, 4th Edition:
We used it for school geography bee. But my son did not win. He covered almost everything there, but he could not answer a question about sport event(soccer). We thought it borders on trivia. The book did not mention about that possibility.
