I want to buy a calc bc book for both review and practice. Which is the best. I am thinking about PR and Barrons.

I am also considering the Arco.

arco by far. PR and Barrons both suck for Calc. Arco and Cliffs > all.

PR and Barrons both suck?? Those are the two that I have... great.

Well the two do seem inconsistant in what they both focus on, so maybe you're very right.

well I used them both for AB and they really didn't help me; PR was too broad and Barrons was too boring. Arco on the other hand did. Arco also has a better BC has about 500 pages of material and 4 practice tests (2AB and 2 BC).

All i know is that i studied off the barrons ap book last year for calc bc and i also didn't have a class and i thought the actual ap test was a breeze after the preparation in that book (5/5 bc/ab subscore).

Arco explains concepts very clearly... But Barron's has better problems...
