Cracking the AP Spanish Exam, 2004-2005 Editionby Mary Leech
The Princeton Review realizes that acing the AP Spanish Exam is very different from getting straight A's in school. We don't try to teach you everything there is to know about Spanish–only what you'll need to score higher on the exam. There's a big difference. In Cracking the AP Spanish Exam, we'll teach you how to think like the test makers and
-Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
-Score higher on the Free-Response section by learning to focus your
analytical skills quickly and efficiently
-Make outlines and use "weaving" to earn more points on essays
-Build your vocabulary by studying our Spanish glossary of poetic devices
This book includes 2 full-length practice AP Spanish tests. All of our practice test questions are like the ones you'll see on the actual exams, and we fully explain every answer.

This does not serve up the exams on a silver platter, but bronze isn't bad. The passages are interesting to read, and the explanations for the practices tests are thorough. The brief grammar review is helpful, but you can probably do without reading all of the rest (just skim it?). The only fault I find is really with the AP Spanish Language section, where the oral parts cause problems--although I do not blame the Princeton Review for this, I think it would have been much more helpful if this book came with a cassette tape of the spoken parts, so one can get used to hearing the passages read aloud. Otherwise, this is a pretty good book, but not great.
