5.0 out of 5 stars a good resource to have 8 Oct 2006
By B. Helvig - Published on Amazon.com
This book has been fully updated and reflects the changes made to the 2007 AP Spanish Language exam. In this book, Jose Diaz gives you ample practice for each section of the new exam.

For the multiple choice section: The listening practice is comprehensive with numerous long and short audio selections. There are more than 40 reading sections to practice and perfect your reading comprehension skills. The questions reflect the new item types that will be part of the new exam.

For the free response section: There are several pages of fill-in practice for both fill-in sections: with root words and without. Several prompts are given for the email/letter test section (32 to be exact). There is also ample practice (17 total) for the new integrated skills essay, where students read 2 articles and listen to an audio source. For the speaking sections, there are 20 practice sections for the new directed dialogue/phone conversation test items and 20 for the new simulated in-class presentation--here students must read an article and listen to an audio source combining the two in their 'in-class presentation' of 2 minutes.

This book is really all you need to be well-prepared for the AP Spanish exam starting in May 2007.

What are the drawbacks to this book? Unless you buy the Audio CD's, sold separately and from the publisher, you can't really practice the audio sections. Without the teacher's guide, also sold separately and from the publisher, you won't know if your answers are correct for the multiple choice and fill-in sections. If you're not in a classroom setting, you won't know if the essay or short letter you have written or if your dialogue and in-class presentation are on track for the score you want. The latter is true of any other test prep book on the market.

All in all, I would say that buying this program is well worth the money; especially since this is one of the few test prep books that has actually been changed to reflect the new 2007 AP Spanish exam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best grammar exercise book - ever. 2 Nov 2001
By skye - Published on Amazon.com
This book is simply the best Spanish grammar question book that I have ever seen. We used it in AP Span Language class my junior year.. at first assignments in it were dreaded, and most people would get a 50% or less, but as we went through the year, learning more, with these exercises as reinforcement, the constructions, tenses, etc became second nature. The AP test was no problem after this book.. but forgetting that test, and just thinking about this for grammar in general, its great. Touches all categories and formats of questions... good reading selections... high quality in general. I'm actually about to buy a copy for myself, as I've gotten a little rusty in grammar after a long time of pure literature studies. It's just that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Wonderful, although best as a companion 1 April 2000
By Steven Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
This book is simply wonderful. The only two minor drawbacks I can think of are 1) the audio tapes are quite expensive to get for yourself and 2) to get maximum benefit use as a companion to an AP course, a Barron's book, or something. The excercises are numerous, challenging, and much like the AP exam. It'll take diligence to work through all the excercises, but once you do and take the AP exam in May, the test will seem so familiar, you'll ace it for sure with a 4 or 5. Of course having the answers helps, but those can be obtained by contacting an AP teacher or something. ¡Que tengas éxito con estudiar y repasar para el examen!

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book. No answer key. 21 Mar 2005
By Patricia Karvouniaris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the best preparation materials and definitely worth the price, but there are no answers- anywhere. Also, the audio CDs do not come with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great practice! 30 Jan 2004
By Cedric - Published on Amazon.com
We use this book in my AP Spanish class. There are tons of pictures, reading passages, and other exercises that match the AP Spanish test. I feel like I'm learning a lot from this book. By itself it would not be very helpful. If you're enrolled in an AP Spanish class and/or using other review materials like Barron's or Princeton Review it should be quite helpful.
