HASH(0xa823781c) out of 5 stars Enthusiastically Recommended! May 2 2011
By Theo - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book to do an independent study of physics C. It's so well written; they tell you what you need to know for the exam and don't waste your time with extraneous information or tedious descriptions. The solutions to the problems are clearly written. This book has been so helpful that I haven't had to use a textbook or another review book. I haven't taken the AP test yet but I did take previously released ones from the College Board and scored super high thanks to the clear, concise guidance of Princeton Review. I've taken a lot of AP exams and used a lot of review books and this one is by far the most helpful. 100% recommend. Cracking the AP Physics C Exam, 2011 Edition (College Test Preparation)

HASH(0xa8237870) out of 5 stars A great book with easy language April 14 2013
By Tantalum - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My AP Physics C: Mechanics test is this May and I'm excited to take it after reading this fantastic book. The language used is easy to learn unlike many math or science textbooks and the practice tests may be harder but greatly help one know the level of questions that will be asked on the actual test. We'll see how this book fares once I take the actual test, but so far, I'm pretty confident that it will help me reach at least a 4, considering you need to answer at least 50% of the test correctly to achieve a 4.

So far, this product deserves a 5/5-- I acknowledge Princeton's level of writing and effort put into this book.

I received a 5 on the 2012-2013 AP Physics C Test.

HASH(0xa8237b4c) out of 5 stars Did Wonders For Me June 5 2013
By M. Morin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me start off by saying that I personally thought Physics C was the hardest AP course that I took. I bought this book around March (two months before the AP test), hoping to salvage something, since the class was giving me a ton of trouble. I was barely able to pull out a passing grade in that class, so I thought I was just wasting my money taking the AP test. This book, however, really helped me touch up on my skills in this class.

Details: This book not only lists the formulas and laws you need to know, but also describes how you know when to use them. Memorizing the formulas is not the hard part, it's knowing when they apply, and this book does a wonderful job explaining how to use each of the formulas.

Practice: At the end of every chapter (excluding Chapter 1), there are multiple problems, some multiple choice and some free response. These questions are usually harder than the actual questions on the AP test, so they give good practice for the test. If you can successfully answer the questions in this book, the AP test should be no problem.

On top of the Physics topics, this book also gives advice on how to prepare for this test physically and mentally, and how to salvage every possible point in the free response section. It gives a lot of advice, and so I recommend anybody studying for this test to get this book.

HASH(0xa8237a44) out of 5 stars Helpful Study Aid; must have to get a 5 Aug. 24 2009
By DM80 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book will cover everything you really need to know. Some chapters probably could do with a little more examples and explaining, but this is the book to get if you're going to get just one. The AP Exam is a whole lot worse than the grade you will probably end up getting in July. Most of my class felt they completely bombed the test but ended up making 4's and 5's. I took this my senior year and constantly found myself getting behind because of laziness and lack of motivation (senior year). I desperately crammed for about a week before the exam and I felt like I was learning a year's worth of information in that time. I did my best on the exam and ended up getting a 5 and a 4. As long as you know the basic concepts and have the ability to do most of the well known examples, you will be competent.

HASH(0xa823a09c) out of 5 stars All I Needed For the Test March 21 2010
By Jacob Grimes - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a cheap way to get prepared for the AP Physics Test. It doesn't have as much info as a real textbook so it's not as interesting, but it has all you really need and presents it pretty clearly.
