PostSubject: AP Test Book?   Sat Sep 13, 2008 9:44 pm

Did any of you guys get an AP test prep. book yet? Well, I had one stuffed in my closet and I'm using it now.

Anyway, I didn't these books would be useful for our lessons but they actually are so it might be helpful to get one. Just saying!

Oh, and the book I'm using is from REA (Research & Education Association). It's sorta thick. Try to find one that helps you a ton if you plan on getting one.

There is a prep book that goes with our textbook. It has all the chapters our book has. Its called AP Achiever - United States History by McGraw-Hill. It has questions for each chapter.

I think your book is the same as mine but mine looks like this (but it says United States History and there are six practice exams):

Ooh, ooh, pick me!

I have a Barron's one. No clue if it's any good, haven't cracked it open. I just happened to have a Borders' coupon. BUT I hear Barron's books usually have problems with the answer key?

Don't think I'm gonna take a look at that book. Tell me if the overall information is good or not.

I dunno. I'm using the Barron books to review for other classes, and so far they're better than their counterparts (other companies). But that's not the APUSH book; it might be different.

The topics they cover are pretty much condensed versions of what our textbook tells us. It's easier for interpretations and analysis.

you can probably get a cheaper but possibly used, online.

it might help if a group of people ordered it together to split cost for shipping

prep books do make it easier to memorize everything but they tend to leave out some bits of info that may pop up
