It doesn't go super in-depth but it's really good at condensing concepts.

I know Barron's does a great job preparing its readers for the tests with its practice tests and I feel like this is the same.

Although I do not take AP courses at my school, I am still able to get a 5 by just studying this book!

This is the best review book for AP Econ. My son used this alone to self-study through the summer of 2012 and used to revise in May 2013 for the AP exam. First time in Economics and he gets a 5 , for both Micro and Macro. That in a sense is this book, its more than enough to get you through AP Econ, which is one of the easier AP exams, plus just by studying one book, you get to be able to take 2 AP Exams, no other way to increase your AP Exams success numbers than by one book take 2 exams. Good on all areas, best on Macro, more than sufficient. Better yet if you have study AP Economics in Senior year school class, this provides an outstanding study companion better than any text book. Highly Recommended.

Having just received AP scores back for this past year, I think I must give much credit to this book for my AP results.

Some quick background: I am a just-graduated senior, and this past year I took five AP classes (including Macro/Micro, so it was only four AP periods per day). I had to semi-self study economics; my schedule forced me to meet with the econ teacher separately each day and receive the assignments, but I couldn't attend the AP Econ period and hear the lectures, due to a conflict with my AP Physics class. I started using this book as a refresher for micro (my school does micro first semester) in early March, leading into AP's in May.

On both Econ tests I was fortunate enough to receive a score of five.
This book was a HUGE reason why.

First and foremost, it is concise and well-organized. The topics are split up into digestible sections that encourage readers to read the full chapter rather than skim through in too shallow a manner. Because there are only about 20 chapters total, it is easily possible to really know the information in as little as five or ten days. You simply need to read 2-4 sections per day and do the practice problems.

The second point in its favor is the problem sets it contains. Personally, I am a fan of seeing more problems and figuring out the theory from the answers (ie - more practice problems and less reading), so I was glad that this book had a good number of practice questions, especially for macro. Furthermore, in my experience the questions were accurate to the format of the exam MC questions:

DISCLAIMER* (I am NOT giving away AP questions, College Board, I am simply saying that the form of the questions was similar).

This book saved me: my teacher was decent, but I am fully confident that this prep book is what got me a 5 on macro AP test.

This is a great review book for someone who has already taken economics and just want a review. It doesn't go super in-depth but it's really good at condensing concepts. I would definitely recommend this to other students who will be taking the exam.

This is my first year taking AP Courses, and I bought Barron's on good authority. I have to say I'm really pleased with Barron's compared to the other books I bought. The book is divided up into chapters, and it tells you which ones are for macro and micro. Real world examples, history, visuals and tables are included to further understanding. I can't vouch for the micro section, but the macro section is like a textbook, it really is all you need to know for a five.
