ABOUT THIS BOOK

REA’s AP Calculus AB & BC Crash Course is a targeted test prep
designed to assist you in your preparation for either version of the
AP Calculus exam. This book was developed based on an in-depth
analysis of both the AP Calculus Course Description outline as well
as actual AP test questions.

Written by an AP teacher and a college professor, our easy-to-read
format gives students a crash course in Calculus, for both the AB
and BC versions of the test. The targeted review chapters prepare
students for the exam by focusing on the important topics tested on
these exams.

Unlike other test preps, our AP Calculus AB & BC Crash Course gives
you a review specifically focused on what you really need to study
in order to ace the exam. The review chapters offer you a concise
way to learn all the important facts, terms, and concepts before
the exam. Topics that are exclusive to the BC version of the test
are highlighted.

The introduction discusses the keys for success and shows you
strategies to help you build your overall point score. Parts Two,
Three, Four, and Five are made up of our review chapters. Here you
will find the core of what you need to know on the actual exam.

Read through the material and pay attention to the diagrams. If
there’s anything you don’t understand, reread the material, then go
back to your textbook, or ask your Calculus teacher for clarification.
Make sure you’re prepared on test day.

Part Six focuses on the format of the actual AP Calculus tests. This
includes information about the multiple-choice questions as well as
the Free-Response questions. Our authors show you what you need
to know in order to anticipate the types of questions that will appear
on the exams.

No matter how or when you prepare for the AP Calculus AB or BC
exams, REA’s Crash Course will show you how to study efficiently and
strategically, so you can get a high score.

To check your test readiness for the AP Calculus AB and BC exams, either
before or after studying this Crash Course, take our FREE online practice
