is 5 Steps to A 5 writing the Ap English essay 2012-2013 good to use for prep?

If not what is the best, I need to improve essays, like crazy!


Damn AP test:(

    ummm the only ways you can improve is not only on the AP book....

    READ LOTS of influential books. After reading a novel, you tend to follow the author's style of writing.

    WRITE ESSAYS EVERYDAY....so you can get use to the timing conditions, and you're more comfortable

    and oh.... i heard princeton review, cliffs (i think it's called?) or barron is great!

    Review Books are not the way for you to achieve a 9. Do repeated timed writes from the College Board ones. Go to the ones that you are most weak on, and you will see results, it just takes time to get better. Ask your AP english teacher (i don't know if you mean Lang or Lit) if they could grade your timed writes and ask for feedback; that always helps.
