Welcome to REA’s All Access for AP Microeconomics and Macroeconomics

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 the topics tested on the AP exam and learn proven strategies that will help you tackle any question you may see on test day.

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 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.

Two online mini-tests (one for microeconomics and one for macroeconomics) cover what you’ve studied in the book. These tests are like the actual AP exam, only shorter, and will help you evaluate your overall understanding of the subject.

Full-Length Practice Test
After you’ve finished reviewing the book, take our full-length exam for microeconomics or macroeconomics (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 (50 for AP Microeconomics and 50 for AP Macroeconomics) 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 Microeconomics and REA’s Crash Course for Macroeconomics. 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.

    I will never buy another Nook Book

    This book gets one star because it is a Nook book which means, you can't print any pages or portions of pages which when it comes to studying is key. Key concepts can't be highlighted, or marked to facilitate coming back to. The content in the book is great, the format stinks.

    This book is highly deserving of its exceptional rating because of many factors.
     I am fortunate to have had his instruction in both AP European history and also AP Micro and Macro economics.
    He is an outstanding teacher in the classroom, and no less can be said about this book.  
    The book is filled with all of the same handy tricks and detailed explanations that Mr. Smith gives in class, and that many would find useful. These make  learning fun and immersive. Do not be intimidated by the size of the book! With narratives strongly resembling an in-class lecture right off the pages of the book, every page is worth reading. The book also features vast online features with flash cards and tests that are very easy to access and use, all included with the book. 

    For all these reasons, this book is completely worth buying and using.
