Everything you need to prepare for the Advanced Placement® exam, in a study system built around you!

There are many different ways to prepare for an Advanced Placement® exam. What's best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. To score your highest, you need a system that can be customized to fit you: your schedule, your learning style, and your current level of knowledge.

This book, and the free online tools that come with it, will help you personalize your AP® Calculus AB & BC prep by testing your understanding, pinpointing your weaknesses, and delivering flashcard study materials unique to you.

The REA AP® All Access system allows you to create a personalized study plan through three simple steps: targeted review of exam content, assessment of your knowledge, and focused study in the topics where you need the most help.

Here's how it works:

Review the Book:
Study the topics tested on the AP® Calculus AB & BC exams and learn proven AP® strategies that will help you tackle any question you may see on test day.

Test Yourself and Get Feedback:
As you review the book, test yourself with 9 end-of-chapter quizzes, plus 2 mini-tests (1 for each exam). Score reports from your free online tests and quizzes give you a fast way to pinpoint what you really know and what you should spend more time studying.

Improve Your Score:
Armed with your score reports, you can personalize your study plan. Review the parts of the book where you are weakest, and use the REA Study Center to create your own unique AP® Calculus AB & BC e-flashcards, adding to the 100 free cards included with this book.

Visit The REA Study Center for a suite of online tools:
The best way to personalize your study plan is to get frequent feedback on what you know and what you don't. At the online REA Study Center, you can access three types of assessment: topic-level quizzes, mini-tests, and 2 full-length practice tests (1 for AP® Calculus AB and 1 for AP® Calculus BC). Each of these tools provides true-to-format questions and delivers a detailed score report that follows the topics set by the College Board®.

Topic-Level Quizzes
Short, 15-minute online quizzes are available throughout the review and are designed to test your immediate grasp of the topics just covered.

Mini-Tests
Two online mini-tests cover what you've studied for AP® Calculus AB & BC. These tests are like the actual AP® exams, only shorter, and will help you evaluate your overall understanding of the subject.

2 Full-Length Practice Tests
After you've finished reviewing the book, take 2 full-length practice tests (1 for AP® Calculus AB and 1 for AP® Calculus BC) to practice under test-day conditions. Available both in the book and online, these tests give you the most complete picture of your strengths and weaknesses. We strongly recommend that you take the online versions of the exams for the added benefits of timed testing, automatic scoring, and a detailed score report.

Improving Your Score: e-Flashcards
With your score reports from the quizzes and tests, you'll be able to see exactly which AP® Calculus AB & BC topics you need to review. Use this information to create your own flashcards for the areas where you are weak. And, because you will create these flashcards through the REA Study Center, you'll be able to access them from any computer or smartphone. Not quite sure what to put on your flashcards? Start with the 100 free cards included when you buy this book.

Welcome to REA’s All Access for AP Calculus AB/BC

A new, more effective way to prepare for your AP exam

There are many different ways to prepare for an AP exam. What’s best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. To score your highest, you need a system that can be customized to fit you: your schedule, your learning style, and your current level of knowledge.

This book, and the free online tools that come with it, will help you personalize your AP prep by testing your understanding, pinpointing your weaknesses, and delivering flashcard study materials unique to you.

Let’s get started and see how this system works.

How to Use REA’s AP All Access
The REA AP All Access system allows you to create a personalized study plan through three simple steps: targeted review of exam content, assessment of your knowledge, and focused study in the topics where you need the most help.

Here’s how it works:

Review the Book:
Study Chapter 3 to be certain that you are strong on the essential Precalculus topics for AP Calculus. Then, study the topics tested on the AP exam and learn proven strategies that will help you tackle any question you may see on test day. This approach will maximize your score.

Test Yourself & Get Feedback:
As you review the book, test yourself. Score reports from your free online tests and quizzes give you a fast way to pinpoint what you really know and what you should spend more time studying.

Improve Your Score:
Armed with your score reports, you can personalize your study plan. Review the parts of the book where you are weakest, and use the REA Study Center to create your own unique e-flashcards, adding to the 100 free cards (60 for Calculus AB; 40 for Calculus BC) included with this book.

Finding Your Weaknesses: The REA Study Center
The best way to personalize your study plan and truly focus on your weaknesses is to get frequent feedback on what you know and what you don’t. At the online REA Study Center, you can access three types of assessment: topic-level quizzes, mini-tests, and a full-length practice test. Each of these tools provides true-to-format questions and delivers a detailed score report that follows the topics set by the College Board.

Topic-Level Quizzes
Short online quizzes are available throughout the review and are designed to test your immediate grasp of the topics just covered.

Mini-Tests
Two online mini-tests for Calculus AB students (and one online mini-test for Calculus BC students) cover what you’ve studied in each major section of the book. These tests are like the actual AP exam, only shorter, and will help you evaluate your overall understanding of the subject material.

Full-Length Practice Test
After you’ve finished reviewing the book, take our full-length exam for Calculus AB or BC (or both) to practice under test-day conditions. Available both in this book and online, these tests give you the most complete picture of your strengths and weaknesses. We strongly recommend that you take the online version of the exam for the added benefits of timed testing, automatic scoring, and a detailed score report.

Improving Your Score: e-Flashcards
Once you get your score reports from the online quizzes and tests, you’ll be able to see exactly which topics you need to review. Use this information to create your own flashcards for the areas where you are weak. And, because you will create these flashcards through the REA Study Center, you’ll be able to access them from any computer or smartphone.

Not quite sure what to put on your flashcards? Start with the 100 free cards (60 for Calculus AB; 40 for Calculus BC) included when you buy this book.

After the Full-Length Practice Test: Crash Course
After finishing this book and taking our full-length practice exam, pick up REA’s Crash Course for AP Calculus AB & BC. Use your most recent score reports to identify any areas where you are still weak, and turn to the Crash Course for a rapid review presented in a concise outline style.
