I'm a Sophomore right now in Canada. Here's my Advanced Placement courses for next year.

1. Calculus BC (In school, I'm taking Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra over the summer, so a sleeper, bought the Princeton Review book nontheless)
2. Biology (In school, but bought the Kaplan and Princeton Review)
3. United States History (In school, I bought the Cracking the AP US History book by Princeton Review and the REA book with CD)
4. European History (Independent, I bought the APCD, Cracking the AP US History, and I'm getting a textbook from my school which offers the course)
5. Chemistry (Independent, I bought the Kaplan and Princeton Review books for Chemistry, but I'm also taking the Grade 12 course, whcih is the only one offered, at my school)
6. Physics C (Independent, taking the grade 11 course, but my calculus should help me out here. I bought the Barrons and Princeton Review)

Any other books that you could recommend?

In addition, for SAT II's, which books would you recommend for SAT II Writing?

I think I've got the sciences and Math basically covered.

Note: I'm in Canada.

Those sure are a lot of books that you plan to read over the year, and that isn't much fun. If you are going to your classes, then you really shouldn't need these books. Don't go crazy with the idea that you need books for every subject, and remember there are your textbooks as well.

I recommend "Chemistry: the central science" for AP chem and sat ii chem if you take it.

Phoenix - what book does your school use for APEuro?

Ill be buying one for my self-study soon, and have been looking at "A history of the modern world" by Palmer

Gah, I might be alone in this but I hate Palmer.
