Looking for some good prep books

I'm currently enrolled in AP English Literature and AP Spanish Language classes, and with the AP exams coming up for me in early May, I would like to start reviewing with a book outside of class.

Here are my goals for each class/book:

AP Lit-I am, in all honesty, a very good literature student and analyst. It is my favorite class. I have consistently had an A in all English classes all through HS. However, I'm having trouble with the multiple choice sections of things, and need some help in essay writing. What is a good prep book? I'm leaning towards to PR Cracking the AP English Lit Exam book, but I'm not sure...

AP Spanish-Okay, here's my problem: Anything I read or listen to in Spanish I seem to understand just fine. My problem comes in writing and speaking it for my self! With the myriad of verb tenses that the Spanish language presents, I occassionally get mixed up and disoriented, and wind up forgetting important structures such as the past subjunctive, or conditional, etc. I'm looking for a prep book that will not only provide strategies for the exam, but also provide detailed review of basic grammar, and highlight grammar structures that are most likely to appear on the exam. What is a good prep book?
