AP Calculus + Chem

<p>I have not taken Pre-cal or AB cal. I'm going straight to BC. Is there a prep book/text book that is sufficient for self study of BC Cal?</p>

<p>I took Honors Chem. Which prep/test book would be good enough for AP Calculus mastery?</p>

<p>No Pre-Calculus? And you are going into Calc BC...?</p>

<p>You know what logarithim? Your trig identities right?...</p>

<p>Yes, yes I am. Now please any suggestions?</p>

<p>Try 'Cracking the Calculus AB & BC Exams' by The Princeton Review.</p>

<p>Barron's will give you the most information and depth.</p>

<p>^^I agree, use Cracking the AP Calculus AB and BC Exams, by the Princeton Review.</p>

<p>Use Princeton Review to get the concepts, but Barron's has many practice problems that will help a TON if you have no background at all.</p>

<p>I would stick with PR and try to do as many practice FRQs as are available. Also, see if your teacher has previous MC and do those. I found Pre-Cal to be more of a waste of a year than anything. In my class at least, we did the exact same thing as what I had done the previous year in our Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry course.</p>

<p>For Chemistry, get Barron's for a very in-depth review and PR if you want a quick brush-up before the exam. Barron's will tell you all you need to know, but the practice questions are not representative. PR does a good job of giving you all you need to know in a very compact manner. So you can take your pick, or get both.</p>

<p>I actually took both Calculus BC and Chem this year and found them both really easy. I'm going into Chemical Engineering next year... so that may be why.</p>
