Chapter 32 focuses on the administration of Woodrow Wilson. His policies concerning Mexico are a point of interest. However, the focus for the AP exam should be on his domestic policies (especially regarding the economy). Many progressive movements come to fruition during this administration, especially the movements for a federal income tax, woman's suffrage, and eventually prohibition.
Chapter 33 focuses on America and its involvement with World War I. Known at the time as the Great War, it was considered a war to end all wars. We know that to not be true. Still, American policies at home during this period are quite interesting, and lead to some interesting effects in the 1920s. Additionally, one cannot overlook military policies regarding segregation. This period was one of many social contradictions.
