Calculus BC Book

<p>I have a really bad grade in calculus right now. I need to push it up quickly but it seems that my efforts are futile. No matter how much I study I get bad scores on the tests. The teacher's questions are just different from the ones in the textbook (which I can do). I just want to know if they are any books out there that ask solely AP type problems (thats the type of questions she asks).</p>

<p>--By the way, I think they erased my old profile when they changed the forum style!!! I want my "buttcrack" back! lol</p>

<p>you can recover the password for your buttcrack</p>

<p>you can buy a book with 15 years worth of actual AP calculus exams (both AB and BC) plus solutions, at:
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Perhaps you should also try talking to your teacher. Ask if she can spend an hour or so with you going over what she looks for in an "AP-type" problem. Could it possibly be that you aren't showing your work thoroughly? One main differecne I notice with AP problems and non-AP problems is that the work shown is just as important as the answer. Maybe she also has books with AP-problems that she can lend to you.</p>

<p>Whats the best AP Calculus BC book?? cause I have finney demana waits and kennedy...but i think they suck. I passed the AB already with a 4 and I am self whats the best BC book??</p>

<p>I have my first C in this class . My straight As are going down to the drain because of this class...sigh. Does anyone have any suggestions besides this calculus book? Oh, and I talked to her but she wont let me drop the class.</p>

<p>By the way, we can't afford a tutor...</p>

<p>Oh I feel for you...BC is killing me</p>

<p>I thought Calculus was easy.....LOL..maybe you guys have a bad teacher....:)</p>

<p>My school uses Finney Demana Waits Kennedy.</p>

<p>I did not like that book at all. Luckily, my dad is a professor and knows several math professors. I got a copy of Finney Thomas "Calculus and Analytic Geometry" Ninth Edition.</p>

<p>It's an out of print book, but if you can find a used copy somewhere, jump on it. It is very well written and very nicely presented.</p>

<p>If you can't, then James Stewart's Calculus text is good as well.</p>

<p>Do u suggest getting an AP Prep book? like Princetons cracking the BC Calc book or something...?</p>

<p>yea i hate the new finney demana waits kennedy book, the one with the earth in air above water, because it attempts to compress everything in as condensed a text as possible, and it can take forever to understand.</p>

<p>i have a B in BC calculus...sigh</p>

<p>Get this book! It's like "10 Reals" for AP calculus:</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Texas137, is that book only for schools though? the order form looks like it's only for schools. Should students do phone order?</p>

<p>Is that website trustworthy? I'm kind of anal when it comes to giving out money on the internet. It looks kinda plain and you know...unprofessional. Have you ever ordered from this site?</p>
