The wording is a bit awkward and the mini-exercises are a bit unnecessary. However, without taking an AP English Language class (I'm an IB student and studied strictly from this book about two weeks prior to the exam - mostly for the essays...) and scored a 5. This is my third time using the 5 steps to a 5 series and it has held true to its name everytime.

Very helpful! I purchased this for my son to help him with his AP test. He said he wished he had this all year as a study guide.

This book is well put together. My child was able to pass the AP test for college credit by using this book. The class seem to follow this book some so this study guide helped towards an A in the class, as well.

i bought this book because it was required for my english class. I liked it's featured on my tablet such as "highlight" but it was difficult to keep up with my teacher as there are not page numbers on the ebook version.

The practice exams are wayy harder than the actual AP exam...but the essay strategies are pretty good. I used this book for my AP Lang class and found it pretty useful. The practice tests made the actual AP exam look a lot easier. The main thing I like about this book are the practice exams. However, I like Cliffsnotes better (more realistic practice exams). If you're self-studying, just get both books for the practice and the essay advice found in this book.

Format: Paperback
The key to doing well on the comprehension section (multiple choice) is to think the way the exam makers think in order to arrive at the same opinions that they hold. Few answers are actually "correct" because few questions are in fact objective. However, the authors attempt to reason logically in the explanations that they give in the answer key and the result is catastrophic: incoherent arguments, jumps to conclusions, ungrounded and unnatural assumptions, inconsistencies and out right contradictions, the omission of certain information and thus "selective reasoning", etc. Moreover, the very reasoning presented in order to justify the winning answer of one question leads to the rejection of the winning answer of another question. The authors themselves can perhaps score well on the comprehension sections, but for reasons that they don't seem to understand and certainly not in following their own explanations, as presented in the answer key. The answer key then is best avoided because it nurtures arbitrary thinking, which can be harmful and certainly isn't helpful. It's far better then to use one of the books that focuses on thinking like the exam maker and thus teaches how to pick the winning answers.
