Best Resources for AP Tests

Where to go for the best AP Test Prep

Finding the best study resources for all the different Advanced Placement tests can be overwhelming.  Here is a handy list of the most popular materials for AP course study, collected by the AP students on Reddit.

Major Types of Review Books

  1. 5 Steps to a 5 – Common, well known, catchy title. Generally inexpensive and a good bang for your buck. Publishes several different types of review books.
  2. Princeton Review- Publishes 550 Questions as well as Cracking the AP books.
  3. Kaplan – Giant, expensive, might-as-well-be-a-textbook review book. Generally the most difficult to find online of all the mainstream review books.
  4. Barron’s – Same as Kaplan as far as length, but well known for their content as far as AP classes goes.
  5. Peterson’s/Cliff’s- “Hey! My teacher had those, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one outside the classroom in my entire life!”
  6. AMSCO – Known for making the best APUSH review books ever.
