I finished reviewing stats with PR
would that be enough? do i have to look at books by other companies as well?

By the way how does the difficulty compare specifically for stats
(barrons, PR, KAp)

    I'm using Barrons, and it's odd....I think the chapter quizzes are harder than the practice-at-the-end-of-the-book questions. Also, how normal is it for me to being HORRIBLE in my stats class, but doing pretty well on the practice exams (haven't taken any, but I've looked at random questions, and have gotten like them all right)?

    Is AP Statistics hard at all??? I heard it was easy.

    AP Stats is very easy, but I know some teachers can MAKE it hard.

    My teacher MAKES is hard...gosh on him.

    That is why I don't know why everyone here is saying it's easy because frankly it is anything but easy. I'm confident now, with Barron's that I'll do well on the exam, but not the class.

    It really depends if you're good at Statistics or not. I could be bad at it or I could naturally be good at it.

    i have a great teacher who gets us ready for exam, lets us do well with good test and quizes, and then gives us crazy homework/ problem assignments.

    THough she never checks them, i think the entire class does all the homework, its interesting, fair and will expand our knowledge - and it is usually not numebr crunching gruntwork
