hey, im taking the AB test in 2.5 weeks!
and im studying for it as we speak!!!
i second barrons
My friend says Pricetons book is really good. Any one have an opinion?
Your class isn't doing a review together for it? OR are you not in the class? I'm sure your teacher has old tests they could give you to look at and work. All the multiple choice sections through 1998 are released and all free answer sections are released. My teacher has all the tests since like 1957. :Q
yeah, we are reviewing but i kinda wasted the year away and im behind everyone. I dont want to stop the whole class for some topic that is trivial for everyone else but is tough for me.
Looking for examples with full explanations and also a tutorial that covers the topics
Try reading the texbook then. You do have one, right? Since basically you're asking for someone to teach you Calc BC for free.
For the basics, read your textbook. Best way to do it, no doubt. Review guides like Princeton and such are good but only if you already have a pretty good grasp of the material. Good for reviewing, but not for learning from scratch.
who studies for calculus?
I am not looking for someone to teach me calc.
Im looking for sites with AP Calculus tutorial with problems that have explanations
My textbook is not a AP text book. Its just a regular college calculus book. There are many topics that either not covered in the book, or extra topics that are not on the AP test.
If you dont have a helpful comment please dont have one at all

Don't be a cheap ass. That test costs $80. $20-$30 spent on study aides is nothing.
If you have lots of time to study and you don't feel at all confident about your calc skills, I'd say get the Barrons *and* the Princeton Review study guides (more practice problems). If you've got the basics down, just get one then; they're both pretty good. They have very simple explanations that you can follow along. I only took Calculus AB, and with the help of the Princeton Review study guide (my calc teacher flat out refused to help me, that bitch), I was able to learn the additional BC topics well enough to get a 5.
Ok, barrons vs. princeton review? Which one is better?
My personal preference is the Princeton Review. It's more clear, and easy to follow.
I've always used barrons for my AP tests (US and European history, both 3s) but princeton review does write the tests so maybe try theres. each will prolly help you as much as the other.
