Hey, just wanted some suggestions/comments... whatever.

SAT II Writing = Barrons
SAT II Math2c = Barrons
SAT II US History (not sure)

AP US History (not sure)
AP English Lang (Cliffs - recommended by teacher)
AP CompSci (Princeton Review - recommended by teacher)

I would appreciate any comments about these books... what worked for you, what didn't (AP or SAT II), etc etc.. Thank you!

For SAT II Writing I would get PR instead.

I haven't taken the US History tests but from what I hear, PR is strong on those too.

US History for the AP I've heard people praise REA and PR the most. REA offers a more comprehensive review, while PR keeps it a bit more brief. I recommend both.

I like PR for AP US. SAT II US I used Kaplan's, but barely (mostly just looked at PR, but SAT II covers some more recent history).

What I'm going to list is NOT personal bias. It is the statistically *best-selling* brands for each subject AND coincides with what I've heard 95% of teachers reccomend.

SAT II Writing - Barron's
SAT II Math IIC - Barron's

AP US History - REA (DEFINITELY! It is hands-down the best...but don't buy REA for other subjects)
AP English Lang - Cliff's (Your teacher is right.)
AP CompSci - Barron's

SAT II US History - Not enough people buy prep books for this so I don't know. Most people just say to use your AP review book.
