I used Kaplan and it wasn't too great.

What I did use, however, that was really good was apexlearning.com They have video review lessons for many AP subjects, including both econs. For Micro I used a textbook and the site, but for Macro I only used the site, did the entire work three days before the test, and I'm sure I got a 5.

It only costs $25, so I highly recommend it.

Don't use Barron's...it's horrible. Princeton Review looked good, but I wouldn't know for sure b/c I wasted my time on Barron's

Kingdvl what are u talkin about? Kaplan, IMO, was great. Almost every Macro topic that appeared on the AP test was covered in Kaplan's book. However, I don't know about the Micro, since I didn't have time to read it.

Kaplan Macro/Micro was the single greatest review book I have ever used for any test. All material is almost exactly as it appears on the AP test.
