5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know Feb. 2 2012
By Mieu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the only book I bought to prepare myself for the Psych AP. As a home-schooler, I hadn't had the opportunity to take the AP course at a high school, but was familiar with the study of psychology. This book presented an excellently organized laundry list of EXACTLY what I needed to focus on and explained the topics quite well. It guided my research and pointed me in the direction of all the famous names that would appear. I used it as a spring-board to my Wikipedia explorations; if a topic wasn't covered very in-depth, I would often research it a little on my own to get a broader understanding. Most times, however, this wasn't necessary.

In 2 months' study, I earned a score of 5. Absolutely worth it for Psych AP takers!

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know for the AP exam July 14 2012
By Wu Chong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book covers all you'll need to know to ace the AP Psychology exam. I had a great AP Psychology teacher, so going through this book once in the days leading up to the AP exam was more than enough for me to comfortably get a 5. And after recommending this book to my friends with worse teachers, they raved about how this prep book saved their AP test scores. I highly recommend this book to all AP Psych students, especially those who are short on time or those who don't have the best teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars helped me get a 5 April 21 2012
By NFS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
this is very concise. used this the night before the exam. and it REALLY helped refresh everything I learned through out the year. i ended up with a 5 on this exam. i also bought barrons flash cards but those were a waste since i couldn't find the time to cram them the night before. if you already know most of the stuff but need a quick refresher on the facts and stuff, this book will be very effective in pushing it all out to the front of your memory. but if you didn't really pay much attention in class and don't know much by now, perhaps this might still possibly help you if you are a good crammer (im not). good luck, and remember, the ap test isn't impossibly hard!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Choice Aug. 30 2013
By Arianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is nice and concise. It focuses solely on the subjects that frequently appear on the AP exams so you do not waste any of your time studying facts that probably won't even be on the exam.

I highly recommend this book to the last minute studier- perfect for cramming and still receiving a satisfactory score.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read in a short amount of time. July 17 2013
By kitty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was able to read through this book in about three days and found it pretty enjoyable. It's really straightforward and was a great refresher; however, I wouldn't rely on this alone to study for the AP test. It's a good idea to go through your old notes and vocabulary, and MAKE SURE YOU PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS. On the AP test, I was able to fly through the multiple choice, but on the free response, I was absolutely lost. I had no idea what the "overjustification effect" or the "central route to persuasion" was (go to the 2013 free response and you'll see what I'm talking about). These terms were not even in my textbook, much less in this book, but that isn't the book's fault. I ended up getting a 4 on the exam.
