Next year I'm taking AP Calc BC, AP Chem, AP Bio and maybe self-study for AP Physics (a bit overwhelmed, I know). I'm not very familiar with the prep books on the market, so please ... if you know what books are good for a particular AP subject, let me know!!!!
Gracias.

I believe there was a thread about this just weeks ago (try just scrolling down). From personal experience, Cliffs for Bio and Princeton Review for Chem. Also, I think Barrons is just reliable in general.

Barrons is usually really really dense.... so if your ready for some dense stuff... have fun. and AP Calc B/C study books are worthless. You either know Calculus or not.

Barrons for Calc.

Spare me this •••• about knowing Calc or not.

Definitely Cliffs for Bio. Cliffs = Bible of Biology

What about self-studied book for AP Physics? Do you guys have any idea? I wanted to use Barron for it because it includes almost everything

Wtvr you say Number9. If you dont know Calculus and you try to cram it with a study guide. Your going to get own3d. You can cram Bio, APUSH, Whatever else. But trying to cram for a subject that requires much maturation throughout the year is worthless. I got my 5 on it and I didnt need a guide to do it.

Self study, AP Physics B or C??? (I'm taking Cal BC this year)
