Above is the link to a Kahoot! APHG review...a good way to gamify the review process.  
There is also this APHG Kahoot! interactive quiz--in this one the students match a development clue to a regional map.This Prezi is a systemic, unit-by-unit review of major ideas. Here’s a student-produced study guide for the APHG test focusing on the ‘big ideas.’ 
Here is a Trivia Pursuit review game with over 400 color-coded question prepared by  Lorrie Etheridge.Since some reviews don't take into account the 2013 changes, I created this hyperlinked Slideshare presentation to explain the changes.  For you Apple users, you can invest in iScore5.

How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements | Educational Resources | Scoop.it

Jason Schneider's curator insight, January 26, 2015 8:45 PM

I am absolutely fascinated by Earth's Physical Environments. What I like specifically about this map and most maps for that matter is that you won't find a lot of comfortable environments that introduce you to many environmental areas in real life. As long as I have the survival skills, I would love to live in a place where I can know what are Earth's Physical Environments.
