How to Study Calc. BC and Physics BC over the summer..?

<p>Hi, I'm a junior who took AP Chem and pre-calculus this year.
I think I have a very poor mathematical background and want to prepare myself for calc and physics class next year. Especially, the physics teacher at my school is notorious for failing a bunch of kids and giving them "impossible tests" as they call it. (I have no idea how bad the tests are, but I heard of ppl failing since freshman year.)
I was wondering if anyone had good self-study books for me to do or look over over the summer. </p>

<p>Amazon.com:</a> How to Solve Physics Problems (College Course) (9780070481664): Robert Oman, Daniel Oman: Books</p>

<p>These are some of the books I found online, and I am not sure if they are any good.</p>

<p>And.. I do not have a class for Physics C.. do you think it is possible for me to study it throughout the year with a review book?</p>

<p>Any help would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>bumppppdddddddddddddddd</p>

<p>What physics are you taking, academic Physics or Physics C or Physics B? Calculus shouldn't be a big deal. Just make sure you do the homeworks (in other words, do practice problems, and for some chapters it would be wise to read the chapter). For physics, if it's academic physics you don't need to fret. However, if it's Physics C (seems like it if your teacher is apparently giving impossible tests), you should definitely be doing a lot of practice problems EVERY chapter, and I mean a lot. The class will be a challenge, MAKE SURE YOU DO PRACTICE PROBLEMS! And don't wimp out for the easy textbook problems either, you need to choose & be able to do the double & triple digit problems, not the initial problems. Self-study books for Physics C will never be able to teach like an actual college calc-based physics textbook would. Self-study books are just fine for AP calculus however.</p>

<p>No advice for physics but buy The Streetwise Guide for the summer, it doesn't go into all that much BC stuff but it gives you a good foundation and is super hilarious (really , I lol'd).</p>
