    Did you check the College Board website?
    They have the past years' FRQs with explanations.

    The AP Bio and Chem exams were redesigned in recent years. Bio exams prior to 2013 and Chem exams prior to 2014 will be of little use in preparing for this year's exams.

    What books would you guys recommend?

    If you mean review books, I would not recommend Barron's for AP Chem. It didn't really help me prepare for the exam and had a bunch of information that wasn't relevant to the redesigned exam. I've heard Princeton Review is good, but I'm not sure since that isn't what I used. The actual textbook we used was Zumdahl but we never actually used it.
    I've heard CliffNotes and Barron's are both good for AP Bio. I have Bio this year so I'm looking into getting one of those. The textbook my class is currently using is Campbell's, which seems to be what a lot of AP Bio classes are using.
    Unfortunately I don't know much about APES; my school doesn't offer it.

    You can find old AP exams on CollegeBoard's website. Just make sure you use the most recent ones you can find for Bio and Chem. Good luck. :)
