AP Physics C Preparation Book

  1. Oct 14, 2005 #1
    I'm taking AP Physics C at school and plan on taking the AP test in May. I want to get my AP prep. book early so I can follow along with the review in the book alongside of my studies at school. What has anyone found to be the best review book? (i.e. Barron's or Princeton Review) I know that some publishers are better than others with certain subjects.

    Thanks! :)

    I hear Barron's is pretty good..
    I also heard 5 Steps to a 5 is good; I ordered it and it should get here in around a week so I can let you know how that goes.

    Good, thank you for the recommendation! Have you heard anything about Princeton Review's?

    I haven't heard much about the AP princeton reviews, but I've read the one for GRE Math... (Found it at a bookstore on sale for $3USD... couldn't resist! :P)
    It explains pretty well in my opinion and has quite a few example problems and explanations...
    I'm guessing that their AP series of books would be about the same.

    The Princeton review would be good if all you wanted it was for Physics B, I took both and the book didnt help with Physics C.
