On top of this, we found that the book is structured just like the AP Chemistry course. It outlines and explains the information you’ll need to know by following the six Big Ideas defined by the College Board. It also comes very close to the new exam curriculum decided by the College Board. This may seem obvious, but many of the other AP Chemistry review books out there have not updated their information to coincide with the current AP expectations. Both the subject matter and the example exams contained in the book reflect these updates, giving you the closest thing to a real exam that you’ll get.
It might be difficult to pinpoint which AP Chemistry review book might be the best fit for you. From short crash courses to long-winded explanations, there are a number of options out there. They are all designed to help you do your best on the exams. Ultimately, it is going to be up to you to make your decision. Consider your level of skill at solving a chemical equation and how much you know about the six Big Ideas when deciding. Here is a quick recap of our best AP Chemistry review books of 2015:

When it comes to AP Calculus review books, 5 Steps to a 5 tends to be a little forgotten when compared to Barron’s and the Princeton Review, but this edition of McGraw Hill’s 5 Steps to a 5 is a good overall review book for reference. The book itself has two full length practice exams, similar to the Princeton Review.
The Ultimate AP Biology Review Textbook has hundreds of interactive quizzes, tests, diagrams, and images. There are also videos, keynote presentations, and instructive animations. There are more than 1400 review items that are divided into 11 chapters. Unlike other review books which are too often merely a compendium of facts, ours is exciting and easy to read. Unlike paper review books which are not only more expensive, but also do not contain many color images, ours is full color, and exciting to look at. Also unlike paper review books, no trees died in the making and publishing of this eBook. Our concept quizzes emphasize and explain AP-style questions. Our explanation pages, which follow each Concept Quiz, are completely hyperlinked, and are useful all year long. We give students a chance to contact us at any time by using our suggestion box, which appears at the end of each chapter. Those who tout AMSCO have not seen The Essential Content yet. I've gone through the major APUSH review books. I've looked at PR, Barron's, Kaplan, Crash Course, REA, and AMSCO. I can conclusively say that The Essential Content is the best book.
