Best prep books (Calculus, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology)

<p>I've done a bit of research and I've found that the best for Biology is Cliff's, best for Chemistry is either Barron's or Princeton Review. I couldn't find much on BC Calculus or Psychology. I'd appreciate any opinions on this.</p>


<p>Chemistry: I recommend PR.
Calculus BC: Princeton Review.
Psychology: Barrons.</p>

<p>I used "5 Steps to a 5" for psychology last year, and i got a 4 :) I used "5 steps to a 5 ab/bc" last year for calculus ab, and i'm using it again this year for calculus bc. great book :)</p>

<p>Cliffs for Bio is the best, despite the superfluity of info....But then at least you know that you are fully prepared =D</p>

<p>Calculus: Princeton Review
Chemistry: Princeton Review. Barron's if you have the time.
Psychology: I personally recommend memorize all the vocabs in your textbook. I didn't use a review book.
Biology: Cliff's & Princeton Review
I have taken all these tests.</p>

<p>If you want 5's, get</p>

<p>Calculus - Barrons. PR is too easy.
Chem - Barron's if you want to learn lots, PR if u r short on time.
Psych - Barrons
Biology - Cliffs or Barrons. My brother used barrons along with cliffs but he said barrons helped alot more.</p>

<p>Bio (5 self-study) - Cliffs, there's not much else to it. If you don't do the 12 labs, Google "ap bio labs" and click on the link and it gives you all the info you need. Also, I don't think Cliffs is superfluous; rather, it's very straightforward. Get the one with the CD for extra practice exams.</p>

<p>Biology: I got a five with Cliff's AP. It's a really, really great review book - gives you a straightforward review of all the topics that you'll need. In addition, I felt like the Cliff's book made difficult concepts much simpler to understand. But apart from review books, it's really good to do some past practice tests and PRACTICE WRITING THE ESSAYS! I've found that AP Bio questions tend to repeat along the same lines.</p>
