    Buy Another Guide Aug. 4 2011
    By Rei - Published on Amazon.com
    Format: Paperback
    Barrons is usually pretty good with test prep, but this book did not reflect that. I was honestly disappointed with this book. There were a lot of errors, and it confused me even more, especially since AP Physics is already difficult as it is. Not to mention, Barrons isn't exactly the easiest to read prep book since it's written in textbook format. I liked their concept explanations for the most part though; I understood them only because I was taking the class at the same time. It would've been hard to self-study with this book.

    The questions themselves, though, are pretty good for practice, since they tend to be harder than the actual exam. However, some of the questions aren't really reflective of the AP exam. I really wish they had proofread the solutions and answer explanations better though. I used this book to study with a group of friends, and we ended up correcting a lot of the problems. We also asked our teacher for help, and he did confirm that we were right and the book wasn't.

    I don't recommend this book if you're looking for test prep material.

    this book is super-thin, incomplete, doesn't explain anything Jan. 16 2012

    I'm a tutor who just got this book to brush up a little, since I hadn't tutored AP physics in a while and I'm working with a student who's pretty sharp. This book is a joke, though, in terms of just how few a pages of content there are; overall about a third the thickness of Barron's AP Chem book, which I also have (and like). This thing is so brief, it's like reading Cliffs Notes of Cliffs Notes -- it's barely an overview of the subjects. For example, I just tried to go in and review electrostatics before an appointment, and electric potential has exactly one page. Are you kidding me? There are multiple equations on the AP equation sheet for potential, yet the book doesn't even mention half of them. And this is like the fourth topic I've looked up and found way too little explanation of.

    Too Many Errors Aug. 25 2012
    By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    Format: Paperback
    There were many errors in this book. I tried to learn most of the material for the exam from this book, but had to purchase another book because this book did not help at all. There were many errors in the formulas, to the extent that I had to derive them all on my own to make sure the book was right. One example of this is on page 287, where a cursive L (usually meaning length) is used instead of the correct capitol I (electric current). The error completely changes the formula. Two pages later, a division symbol is used instead of the same correct capitol I. I did not do most of the practice exams, but in the Diagnostic Test, questions 53-55 have the wrong answers. The writers must have changed the questions between editions, but not bothered to change the answers or answer explanations, since they are about completely different concepts. I can't find the problem at the moment, but one of the free responses had the wrong solution and answer. I had to ask my teacher, and he said I was right and the book was wrong.

    In summary, buy a different review book. This one is not worth your money.

    Older version has many errors (not sure anything has changed with new version) Dec 23 2011
    By "Dory" - Published on Amazon.com
    Format: Paperback
    The text part of the book is excellent. Ofter it details a problem solved with a unique visual solutions. I am using a much older version of the book and it is also full of errors on the actual test sections. I was so frustrated that I wanted to purchase a new edition hoping that this problem was corrected. Based on other reviews, I'll stick to this book for supplement to text only. I like Schaums Outline of College Physics, which is also non-calculus based. So far, the books have approached problems differently which one may appreciate based on your learning style.

    So Many Errors May 7 2011
    By James - Published on Amazon.com
    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    This book is riddled with ridiculous errors. Problems with simple math are rampant... 8.2 - 5.7 = 3.5 to this book.

    If the errors weren't bad enough, almost all of the practice problems that are presented throughout the chapters require the use of a calculator for some kind of accurate division, something that isn't present on the AP test. If it wasn't my last year of AP tests anyway, I would not be using Barron's again.
