If you are feeling a little blue about integers, derivatives, and things that rhyme with shmalculus—either AB or BC—
check out the Shmoop guide to AP Calculus for all your calculating needs.
Specifically designed for mastering the AP Calculus AB & BC exam. Learn the difference between Calc AB and Calc BC (other than the letters "A" and "C"), how to keep from bursting into tears during the free response section, and why you will never be able to listen to disco again without thinking about derivatives. Ever.
"Calculus" in the Land of AP is actually two cities (and both are the best of times if you know what you are doing). Lucky for you, we have four practice exams for each.
We love the smell of calculus in the morning. Smells like...victory. You'll be smelling that once you have completed all the practice drills we've lined up for you.
Let’s not mince words here: math… may not be everyone’s favorite subject. Still, you’ve made it to the big time—AP Calculus. By default, you’re at least a little bit of a rock star. Even if you don’t love math, you get it. Rest assured, Shmoopers. We have something for everyone in this guide.
