AP Calculus AB and BC: Appropriate Book?

Hello all

I was just wondering whether Richard Courant's Differential and Integral Calculus Volumes 1 and 2 would be appropriate for studying AP Calculus AB and BC. Would I be able to learn most of the topics covered in these courses just by using these books? I am asking this, because I do not want to spend money on big, modern, and expensive books.

Any replies would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

My recommendation would be Michael Kelley's "Master the AP Calculus AB and BC Tests". It should sell for around $20 or less. (about $13.27 from Amazon.com plus shipping).

Michael Kelley's a lot more readable than the average author of math books.
