Physics 2

Online Prep & Review

As the second-semester version of an algebra-based introductory physics course, AP Physics 2 exam levels up to topics beyond classical mechanics. That's right: Shmoop is modern. Shmoop is down with the lingo. We're all about quantum mechanics and special relativity, and we're hip to thermodynamics, electrostatics, circuits, and optics. It's like groundbreaking physicist Louis-Victor-Pierre-Raymond, 7th duc de Broglie once said: "Dude, finding new things is legit the actual best."

Just kidding. He actually wrote, "The actual state of our knowledge is always provisional and...there must be, beyond what is actually known, immense new regions to discover." Less funny, but very wise.

What's Inside our Online Physics 2 Test Prep:

Test-Taking Tips

Our guide to the AP Physics 2 exam is jam-packed with tips, tactics, and topics to help you prepare for the second boss of the AP Physics sequence. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to write you the lyrics of a song titled "Sweet Home, Ala-Gamma" to help you memorize the names and order of the different types of light in the electromagnetic spectrum, but we definitely thought about it.

Two Full-Length Practice Exams

If our happiness depended on full-length practice exams, the only thing that would make us happier in a test prep guide than one full-length practice exam would be more than one full-length practice exams. Get ready to have your mind blown, because we have two of them. The best part? They're both aligned to the actual AP Physics 2 exam.

Practice Drills

In the mood for some light review? Disco Santa—uh, Shmoop has you covered. Get ready for the AP Physics 2 exam with our informative and frankly hilarious practice problems, now featuring 100% more holiday-themed light installations than you expected.


We at Shmoop enjoy lifting you up by pointing out your strengths. However, we also enjoy pointing out your not-so-strengths so we can lift you up by directing you to targeted review. Basically, we just really enjoy lifting things.

Like a gravitational constant, Shmoop prepares you for AP Physics 2 and keeps you on a stable orbit that doesn't intersect with the sun.
