9/12: After working through the entirety of The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Calculus AB & BC Exams, I found the explanations to be thoroughly clear and informative. Additionally, considering how many mathematics books I've worked on, I've never seen the details in the solutions to be so clear as I have with this one. I am very pleased with the overall knowledge that I've accrued from it. The topics I had struggled with the most in the past were Solids of Revolutions and Series. The Princeton Review: Cracking the AP Calculus AB & BC Exams has finally made the former abundantly clear so that I overcame it, and now I can find solids of revolutions through washer and cylindrical shells methods with confidence. The latter, I found the treatment of series to be quite lazy. That's Chapter 35. How can the author omit divergence and p-series tests? Inexcusable. The chapter should have been broken down into two chapters with more examples: the first dealing with easier types of series and the second, harder ones. But the treatment of Taylor and Maclaurin series was not bad at all. Also, the author was lazy in the volume of solids with known cross-sections; he just merely copied the questions for examples 9 and 10 but failed to explain why we had to multiply by 2 with y. That wasn't clear enough. In the solutions, especially for the BC Section II questions, the author will say, "Obviously, we don't need to.." and then move on. Uh...explain the obvious, will you? Speaking of laziness, how about the Section II questions in BC examinations? Why did the author have to repeat the questions already asked in AB examinations? What a waste of questions.

As a high school student in multiple AP classes, I found it very difficult to study all of the detailed information that my AP teachers required of me to know. I bought this book in hope that it would condense the large amount of material into exactly what I needed to know for the AP exam, and that is exactly what it did. I was able to read through the whole book a few weeks before the AP test, and it allowed an entire year of in depth knowledge to be broken down into a few core concepts. Because I used this book, I was able to get a 5 on the AP exam. I also took it to college with me, and it has helped tremendously in my college calculus class. It takes the complicated sections in the textbooks and simplifies them to the basics, while also providing difficult practice problems with step by step solutions. I would definitely recommend this book to all those who are entering AP calculus.

I loved this book because it has a lot of practice and it explains the answers thoroughly but it does have a few mistakes

I am a huge fan of the Princeton AP Calculus Review books, but I was VERY disappointed in this version. In 2012, the AP Calculus AB and BC exams were changed to have 2 Free Response Calculator and 4 Free Response Non-Calculator questions on the exam. You'd figure with a year to make this change and labeling the book "2013 Edition" the 5 mock tests would have the same set-up as the current real exam. Unfortunately, it doesn't and students who take this practice exam will encounter a different exam than what is on the real AP exam.

I found this book easy to use. It has great tests. The only problem was that it did not show many example problems for each subject. In my opinion they should have added a little more.

I swear there is at least one typo on every other page in this book. Most of them are in the mathematical equations. This made it very frustrating to use. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what I did wrong, only to realize I had done it right all along, the book was just wrong. It's pretty ridiculous that they could publish this book without having edited it better than they did. Hopefully they fixed a lot in the 2014 edition because it could be a great learning tool if it weren't for the typos.

Tons of material for both classes. I did decent on the exam, but that was more because of balancing full time job and school. This guide helped tremendously though. The examples are very clear, which they need to be to so you can mimic the problem solving technique that the AP graders expect. One of the better ones.
