Old AP Physics tests / questions

  1. Nov 3, 2007 #1
    Does anybody have the old AP Physics C questions and solutions from the 1970's or 1980's to present?
    My teacher is giving us an midterm exam (mechanics) and said it would be helpful to study the past old tests. Also, if E&M is available, I wouldn't mind having that either, it wouldn't hurt to study more also for later. This could be a useful resource for everyone. Thanks to anyone who tries to help.

    AP Physics C Mechanics Multiple Choice

    All of the past AP Physics C Mechanics free response questions are online through either AP Central, or a torrent. However, It's hard to find any past released multiple choice questions and solutions. Does anyone have them from any of the years? Could you make a torrent or a website where they could be downloaded? Or could you send them to my email at [email address removed by moderator] ? I'm preparing for the AP exam and am trying to get all the practice I can get. Thanks in advance.

    I am trying to get my hands on old exam materials too. Is there anything out there? Or any teacher who is willing to share some materials? Please message me.

    Your best bet is to get one of the review books from a company like The College Board, Kaplan, Barron's, or The Princeton Review. They usually include some practice exams. If you do a search at Amazon for "AP Physics", you'll find many of these books.

    You can also actual Free Response questions from previous tests at The College Board's website:
