I'm taking the AP Biology exam and have heard excellent reviews on Cliffs AP Bio on amazon. Has anyone used this book? and what's your opinion? Thanks.

i use cliff's but my library has barrons and another one, five steps to a 5 i think. i will use those for practice questions during the break b4 teh exam, but i'm basically sticking w/ cliff's for notes. i might look at the others'. i've heard cliff's works the best, but also good reviews from barrons. good luck

My AP biology teacher recommended Cliff's to us. She's amazing, and usually has a pretty good scattering of 5s in her class, so I trust her opinion on the book. I bought it and it's exactly what it claims to be: a good review book. You do need to know the material from class, etc. beforehand, but the Cliffs is pretty good.

I'm using the Campbell Biology book and so far Cliff's has covered pretty much everything, and it's much more student friendly.

Cliff's has become my best friend for AP Biology.

Are Cliff's questions accurate pretty much in regard to the AP test?

I have Cliff's, but I'm stuck with a lousy teacher and textbook.
