All Access for the AP® Calculus AB & BC Exams
Book + Web + Mobile
Updated for the new 2017 Exams
Everything you need to prepare for the Advanced Placement® Calculus exams, in a study system built around you!
There are many different ways to prepare for an Advanced Placement® exam. What's best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. To score your highest, you need a system that can be customized to fit you: your schedule, your learning style, and your current level of knowledge.
This book, and the online tools that come with it, will help you personalize your AP® Calculus prep by testing your understanding, pinpointing your weaknesses, and delivering flashcard study materials unique to you.
REA's All Access system allows you to create a personalized study plan through three simple steps: targeted review of exam content, assessment of your knowledge, and focused study in the topics where you need the most help.
Here's how it works:
Review the Book:
Study the topics tested on the AP® Calculus AB & BC exams and learn proven strategies that will help you tackle any question you may see on test day.
Test Yourself and Get Feedback:
As you review the book, test yourself with 9 end-of-chapter quizzes and 3 mini-tests. Score reports from your free online tests and quizzes give you a fast way to pinpoint what you really know and what you should spend more time studying.
Improve Your Score:
Armed with your score reports, you can personalize your study plan. Review the parts of the book where you are weakest, and use the REA Study Center to create your own unique e-flashcards, adding to the 100 free cards included with this book.
Visit The REA Study Center for a suite of online tools:
The best way to personalize your study plan is to get frequent feedback on what you know and what you don't know. At the online REA Study Center, you can access three types of assessment: topic-level quizzes, mini-tests, and a full-length practice test. Each of these tools provides true-to-format questions and delivers a detailed score report that follows the topics set by the College Board®.
Topic Level Quizzes:
Short, 15-minute quizzes are available throughout the review and test your immediate understanding of the topics just covered.
Three online mini-tests cover what you've studied. These tests are like the actual AP® exam, only shorter, and will help you evaluate your overall understanding of the subject.
2 Full-Length Practice Tests - (1 for Calculus AB and 1 for Calculus BC):
After you've finished reviewing the book, take our full-length practice exams to practice under test-day conditions. Available both in the book and online, these tests give you the most complete picture of your strengths and weaknesses. We strongly recommend you take the online versions of the exams for the added benefits of timed testing, automatic scoring, and a detailed score report.
Improving Your Score with e-Flashcards:
With your score reports from the quizzes and tests, you'll be able to see exactly which AP® Calculus topics you need to review. Use this information to create your own flashcards for the areas where you are weak. And, because you will create these flashcards through the REA Study Center, you can access them from any computer or smartphone.
REA's All Access test prep is a must-have for students taking the AP® Calculus AB & BC exams!
