Barron's AP Statistics / Edition 5

One Diagnostic and five full-length Advanced Placement Practice Exams are presented in the manual with all questions answered and explained. Equally valuable to prospective test takers is the author’s 15-chapter topic review, covering virtually everything they will encounter on the actual exam. Topics for review are divided into four general themes: Exploratory Analysis, Planning a Study, Probability, and Statistical Inference. Additional multiple-choice and free-response questions with answers are presented at the end of all 15 chapters. Detailed appendices include exam-taking advice, an AP scoring guide, a guide to basic uses of TI-83/TI-84 calculators, and more. This manual may be purchased alone or with an optional CD-ROM containing two additional full-length practice exams, giving students a total of eight practice exams. The free-response questions in all exams have been replaced in this new edition in order to bring practice tests completely up to date and accurately reflect the latest AP Statistics exams.

Sternstien's study books are both helpful and fun. However, his flashcards have been my most useful tools. The level of rigor and the explanations are awesome. I've learned a lot just by his flashcards alone. I honestly believe that his various study tools has better increased my chances of doing my best on the upcoming AP Statistics exam.
