I used Barron's to prepare for all of my AP tests. Their flashcards and their books were both extremely helpful, and I was well-prepared for all my exams. I used their Chemistry, Biology, U.S. History, and Psychology textbooks, as well as their U.S. History and Psychology flashcards. The flashcards were especially great because of how portable they were, and they made last review before the exam very efficient. I was able to score a 4 or higher on every test I took thanks to their preparation.
