A bit disappointed...
on May 4, 2014
Everyone raves about Barrons but I was disappointed by this prep book. It's supposed to contain the most basic, relevant information that you need, but it glosses over or skips topics that are relevant or related. It doesn't even explain topics any better, or more succinctly, than a textbook or online search/video would. Frankly, it hasn't been much use to me; even the practice tests aren't great - the format (wording/style) can be a bit confusing and do not match or even closely resemble AP-style questions. The free response sections are useful enough, though.
I purchased the Barron's flashcards and find them more useful as a supplement/review tool.
