This book is fantastic. Reading it is effortless and fun. It logically organizes the material you must know and prepares you for the test experience itself. The presentation is crystal-clear. The authors heed Einstein's insight: 'You do not really understand something until you can explain it to your grandmother.'

This book is clear, easy to understand, comprehensive, and actually entertaining. Because it was written by a former AP Physics student and an AP Physics teacher, the material is perfectly geared towards students' needs, and it knows how to keep the reader's attention. The practice problems are challenging but not too hard, and the diagrams and side notes are often laugh-out-loud funny. Above all, after using this book I feel much more prepared and confident.

I have been under the tutelage of Greg Jacobs for over a year now. Never have I seen a professor turn out such successful students. He knows what he is talking about - and his methods are proven. Any who want to take the test should consider his method.
