Very good for what it is

Great book

This is a great book, I know AP Calculus BC is a hard course. this book with thorough explanation of every theory and formula really helped my kid's study, and studying the examples and doing the practice questions in this book also improved his grade for this semester, I believe it will be a big help for the upcoming AP test in May. a great reference for AP Calculus class.

Multiple Choice Questions to Prepare for the AP Calculus BC Exam

Excellent Companion For AP Test

I bought this book to prepare for my AP Calculus BC exam in 2015, and it got me a 5 on the test! It was very useful, and there are sample problems for every type of question that came up on the exam. I also purchased the solution mannual from MathBoat, and it was very clear, and a good companion to this book. I would recommend buying this book well before the AP Exam, and working through each type of problem a few times to understand it completely.

It is little hard to do but I feel like this gave me some practice that Khan academy

It is little hard to do but I feel like this gave me some practice that Khan academy, Barrons, and previous AP exams couldn't give. I used this and Barrons. Also my calculus used similar problems in the tests so it helped me boost my grade to an A. I also did well on my AP exam so I'm happy.
