Great for AP Physics B! Not so much for C...
on May 14, 2013
I got a 5 with the help of this on the B exam. It reviews mechanics, thermodynamics, optics, and fluid dynamics sufficiently well for the B Exam. Electricity and Magnetism are also covered well for the B Exam....but are oversimplified for the C exam. It does not go into enough detail at all for AP Physics C E&M. It covers Mechanics relatively well, but should still have more depth and detail for Physics C. Things are too simplified in this book as it is for the B Exam as well, and it only has one section per chapter for more depth in C topics, and usually only on new topics that are in C related to the chapter but not in B, it does not go into more depth than is needed for B.
