Note: This rating is based completely on the practice exam that we were assigned as an AP Calc class.
I felt I was getting stupider every time I answered a question. Just take a look at the
practice problems it offers as a preview. Section 1: No calculator. The answers are in decimal points. Yep, decimals. You have to know the square roots of non-square numbers and divide out Euler's constants.
Problem 3 had me stuck, no matter what I did I was always off by a little over a tenth. I bent the rules and plugged it into my calculator - sure enough. The answer wasn't an option.
My last grievance is the setup. The test is not setup like any other CollegeBoard prep tests I have taken. Question 3 on the free response uses a hard-to-read sign chart. The questions are simplistic and most of the time do not consist of multi-step problems.
Overall, this packet did more to harm than to help my review.
