AP Calculus BC during the Summer

<p>I am planning on studying ap calculus this summer so that I am familiar with all of the material during this upcoming year. What would be a good book to purchase in order to teach myself, and do any of these books offer a quick review of basic pre calc principles? Thnx in advance</p>

<p>I don't know of any books as I haven't taken the class yet, but Khan</a> Academy has a lot of calculus videos that could help supplement whatever book you get</p>

<p>Peterson's</p>

<p>I got the book 'Calculus Lifesaver' and it looks really good. I'm taking the class next year , but I want to get a head start as well. I remember seeing a pre-calc review section in the book, so it might a good book for you! Good luck.</p>

<p>Thanks guys, I'm right now debating whether to purchase the Barrons book or the Princeton Review. Does anyone favor one over the other? and I will let you guys know what my final choice is.</p>

<p>^ Of those two, Princeton is much more realistic difficulty-wise, according to past test-takers. Barron's is pretty hard apparently.</p>

<p>Princeton Review offers no review of trig/pre-calc.</p>

<p>^ does Barrons?</p>

<p>I'm using Barron's next year for AB so I am over-prepared for the test. I imagine the real thing would seem much easier after working through Barron's.</p>

<p>does barrons have a precalc overview? and ive also heard that barrons over prepares you, but is alot harder</p>
