Let's say I memorize the Cliffs AP bio prep book.(I mean understand/memorize by heart) Is it possible to pull off a 5? I realized that most of the terms in the Cliffs book is almost idential to the one in the Cambells book. And, honestly, I dont feel like memorizing a thousand pages of bio.

    If you memorize the Cliff's book, you won't get a five. If you UNDERSTAND the Cliff's book, you may be able to. In the section that says "How You Should Use This Book" of page three, is the following: "You should consider this book, however, as a supplement to your textbook, your laboratory exercises and your teacher's lectures."

    Even Cliff doesn't think his book alone is anough to earn a five.
