URGENT! One last question about SATII Physics from AP Student

<p>I'm taking AP Physics C Mechanics this year. Should I sign up for SATII physics and then self study the rest of physics from ~may 12th - june? </p>

<p>Has anyone done this? is the rest (electricity, magnitism, optics, etc.) of the stuff easy enough to learn from the kaplan book?</p>

<p>thanks, reply quickly because i have until 11:59 to register!</p>

<p>Thats what I'm planning to do. I'm currently in a regular physics class and I'm planning to self-study the rest of the topics. But my class has already covered optics and electricity and I've heard the test covers alot on electricity and magnetism.
I guess we'll need to find good prep books. Recommendations anyone?</p>

<p>Well I'm not sure whether or not to take it yet.</p>

<p>I looked at the Kaplan book and mechanics is 38-42% of the test.</p>

<p>Anyone with experience doing this? I could take the US History exam instead</p>

<p>uhm bump anyone else?</p>

<p>Why not take them both?</p>

<p>hey FAE
why do u say 'bump'??</p>

<p>Bump means "Bring up my post" and he says it to, well, bring up his post.</p>

<p>Take physics without pressure. The curve is extremely generous and it's isn't just for AP physics students. I took it after a regular course during the summer and got a 790. All the basic concepts you need for the exam are in Kaplan. Kaplan has good brief explanation however if you're learning it for the first time get a textbook and read it. Barron's and PR tend to go way over the topic going into AP stuff. For the practice exams use PR and Kap. Barron's is needlesly hard and has many AP topics that are not on the test.</p>

<p>Thank you that is exactly the answer I was looking for!</p>

<p>Yeah, I have never taken a physics course and I am planning on taking the Physics SAT II in June. I am going to start studying after the may SAT, and have only gone over the first section so far. I will finish the rest after may exam.</p>
