Which books to get?

<p>Math II (I hear PR is good?)
US History
Spanish (No Listening)
Physics</p>

<p>I'm mostly worried about Spanish, as I plan on taking that soon, and I have no idea how the test is structured and such, and I've had no recommendation on books.</p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Don't know too much about other 3, but I used the AMSCO AP USH book for the SAT II USH test...it worked about pretty great.</p>

<p>Great, I have AMSCO already :D
Also, is REA really necessary in addition to AMSCO for APUSH/SAT2 USH?</p>

<p>I don't think so since REA basically contains the same info. as AMSCO. I think AMSCO is enough to get a 5 on AP and 750+ on SAT II.</p>

<p>Alright, thanks for the tip.</p>

<p>Anyone else have recommendations? (Again, mostly Spanish)</p>

<p>the only exam i took from your list is APUSH, and i have to say that princeton review helped me the most. i used amsco as well, but that was very brief. pr goes into the more detail that you need and helped me ace my essays</p>

<p>Crash Course is also good for USH.</p>

<p>I have Crash Course and AMSCO for APUSH; it sounds like they'll be sufficient for the SATII in addition to the AP test?</p>

<p>^Definitely. </p>

<p>Which tests are you taking first by the way? </p>

<p>You might've heard it before, but many suggest Barron's for Math II because it overprepares you with its difficult tests and review of all the material. Then make sure you take the Math II exams in the Collegeboard Official Guide in Mathematics, because they're the most accurate predictor of the score you'll get since they're the closest in format and difficulty. </p>

<p>As a general rule, however, taking Sparknotes practice tests and the Collegeboard Official SAT Subject Test Study Guide tests is helpful.</p>

<p>Barron physics is trash.. filled with errors</p>

<p>Pick up that All Subject Tests book from CollegeBoard then?</p>

<p>I plan on taking Math II maybe around March, as I'll be taking Pre-Calc next year, but self-studying for Calc AB, so that should help me out a bit, I think.</p>

<p>USH in April, as we're pretty much done in our class by then; just reviewing for AP's, and I want to have time later for AP's.</p>

<p>Spanish I'm not really sure about yet; I haven't heard much about the difficulty or anything yet, so it's up in the air. I just finished 3, and I'm going into 4 Honors next year. Anyone know anything about Spanish?</p>

<p>Physics I'll probably end up doing next year, but I'll try for early (October?), since I want to apply EA, and I'm taking it over the summer next year.</p>

<p>I'll take a close look at Barron's and PR for Math.</p>

<p>(Thanks about Barron's Physics, btw)</p>

<p>Yeah, I would get the book from a library or something. I don't think it's worth buying. </p>

<p>Pre-Calc is all you need, but make sure you've covered all the material before you take the exam, because you probably will not have learned all of it in class before you start studying for March. I've heard that Calc can help, probably mostly with limits.</p>

<p>Spanish is said to be difficult if you're not a native speaker. Unless you're proficient in Spanish, it might not be in your best interests to take it.</p>

<p>Alright, sounds good.</p>

<p>I'll be sure to go over everything thoroughly then.</p>

<p>Sound advice. I'll do a bit more research on the difficulty.</p>
