apush: PR and REA
Calc BC: Arco's(from what i heard on this board)
I dont even think the others have been given attention on this board, but you could do a search.

Do not buy REA for AP US history. Its too damn comprehensive and is too detailed. Some good books are Princeton Review and Sparknotes US history. SAT II books are just as good.

PR for US History, Calc BC, Lit
Barron's for Comp Sci

Anyone else?
Is the Barron's good for Chem? I heard it contains too many typos.
Meanwhile, how about the Barron's Calculus? Is this book as hard as the SAT II book? Barron's SAT II is the worst nightmare!!

Thankx in advance.

The PR books are pretty accurate, and the tests are good.
