Calculus BC dilemma

Yeah I am new to this, so I want to self-study this. Is Calc AB a prerequisite?

What prep book will most likely gurantee me a 5?

    I can't speak to the prep book piece (I recommend you find the book that speaks calculus to you in a way that makes the most sense).

    But AB is not a prerequisite for BC. All the AB topics are on the BC exam, so you'll want to make sure you know those, but you don't have to study AB first, per se.

    Also can I get a link to the prep book? I hear Peterson is good, but I have seen so many versions of it. I don't know which one is the right one.
