Overview

The Book That Gets You Results

Score higher by studying the most frequently tested material, including vectors, linear momentum, thermal physics, and more

We Know the AP Physics Exam
The experts at The Princeton Review study the AP Physics exam and other standardized tests each year to make sure you get the most up-to-date, thouroughly researched books possible.

We Know Students
Each year we help more than two million students score high with our courses, bestselling books, and award-winning software.

We Get Results
Students who take our courses for the SAT, GRE, LSAT, and many other tests see score improvements that have been verified by independent accounting firms. The proven techniques we teach in our courses are in this book.

And If It's on the AP Physics Exam, It's in This Book
We don't try to teach you everything there is to know about physics—only the facts and techniques you'll need to know to score higher on the Advanced Placement exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the AP Physics B & C, 2000-2001 Edition, you will learn to think like the test-makers and

*Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
*Improve your score by knowing in advance what physics topics are most likely to be tested
*Memorize complicated physics concepts using simple techniques
*Ace the free-response section by practicing on our sample questions

Practice your skills on the two full-length sample tests inside (one each for the Physics B & C exams). The questions are just like the ones you'll see on the actual AP Physics exam, and we fullyexplain every answer.
