Self-Taught AP Economics

For AP economics, does the Principles of Economics by Mankiw (textbook) cover both AP Macroeconomics and AP Microeconomics? Would using this textbook with Princeton Review and Barron's give me a good chance at getting a 5 on both tests? Anyone who has self-studied economics please offer advice or tips.

    I'm self-studying econ this year, and I'm just using the prep books. I checked through a couple of textbooks and cross referenced them with the AP syllabus, and apparently there's a lot more in them than we need to know.
