For the new 2012-2013 school year, the college board has revised both the AP Biology curriculum and the AP test as well.
I have a few questions on which review books to purchase and when I should do so
- I've read in previous threads that the cliffsnotes version is the best for AP Biology, but the latest edition is from 2009. Should I get the cliffsnotes anyways? How helpful was it?
- The review books for the 2013 test won't be coming out until January-ish -- except PR which is available in September 2012 -- but I also heard the PR AP Bio book is useless.
Should I get the PR book anyways because it is the only review book available (or that's what i heard) for the new 2013 test, even though I also heard it wasn't as helpful..? OR would it be better to wait until January/February for the other review books to come out...exactly how necessary are these review books throughout the school year?
- Are there any books you would recommend for the AP Biology test that are made for the 2013 test?
