It does not match the new exam.
Phillip
The questions are terrible, repeated, and the practice exams don't even resemble in the slightest the new exam practice tests.
Luke
Will cover things that you don't even need for the exam.

When I pre-ordered this 5 steps book to a 5 for AP chemistry, I thought I would be able to use the new style questions when planning instruction for September, but I was sadly mistaken. Thought the book purports to be for the new AP chemistry exam for 2014, the questions given in each chapter do not match the College Board exemplars provided to AP teachers. There are no conceptual questions of question sets. This is a waste of money. The old review books, of which I have many, already provides old style questions by unit. At the beginning of each topic the book does explain content covered in the new exam, but I purchased the book for the practice questions. Overall this is very disappointing.

this review boook does NOT follow new format. It has nothing on mass spec or PES, the multiple choice practice contains only 1 "set" college board said half the mc would be in "sets" does not refer to the "big Ideas" contains the same topic chapters as in the past with nothing on what has been excluded. particulate level drawings are huge there are none in this review book

They mention the new format in the intro but this in no way would help you with the new exam. This is a major disappointment.

It's pretty much the same as the past version. I expected much more in the area of the type of question which will be asked on the new AP chemistry exam.

My father bought me this book because my chemistry teacher told me to follow it throughout the year. The reviewbook claims to be updated for the new exam. I assure you, it is not. Please buy Adrian Dingle's crash course book, which is in fact updated with particulate diagrams, colorimetry, all the new labs, and so much more. I took it upon myself to read the course description and curriculum framework to actually see what I have to know for this exam and this book does not cut it by far.

What 5 steps to a 5 did is copy and paste their old reviewbook with little highlights of "enrichment" that they should simply take out because it is not on the new curriculum. I wish I had bought ANY OTHER REVIEW BOOK, no matter how terrible and erroneous, other than this one.

My exam is tomorrow and this reviewbook has been the worst prep I have ever had. On every single exam I have taken prior, I have always felt prepared and then have reconfirmed this with a reviewbook. I have had to consult various other websites and sources in order to actually understand the material that they briefly mention and the various other topics not included in this book: Beer's law, an in-depth analysis on laboratory setups, and so much more. But at least the book teaches me the Nernst equation, which isn't on the exam and serves no point in a reviewbook for AP.

The questions are terrible, repeated, and the practice exams don't even resemble in the slightest the new exam practice tests. IF YOU ARE BUYING A REVIEWBOOK FOR NEXT YEAR, WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.

I was hoping to get some questions that match the new curriculum....after looking at the practice test there are no particulate questions and there was a nuclear one! It clearly does not match the new exam!

I bought this book thinking it would have material pertinent to the 2014 exam. It does not, it was a big deception to me.
