HASH(0x98bace04) out of 5 stars A complete lifesaver. 5 Dec. 2012
By abooksnmore - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Okay, so I will make this short and concise. I am a Junior in high school, but I took AP Psychology as a Sophomore. I have to be honest, throughout the year I really did not pay attention in class. I studied for the tests and quizzes but forgot the material days after. I guess it was encoded in my short term memory (AP Psych nerd!)? Anyhow, the end of April arrived and I realized I wasn't ready for the test. I took a pretest exam before actually going over the Barron's, to see how much I knew, and, not surprisingly, I didn't know a heck of a lot. I bought the Barron's, and started using it as soon as I received it. I started highlighting and making annotations. I did this for a full week, and read for about 3-4 hours every day during that week. It got to a point where I actually enjoyed the material in the book; the author(s) made it fun to read and many times they even included humor and personal experiences that related to certain psychological terms.

After I read the book for about a week, I took 3 actual released AP Psychology tests from College Board (you can buy these on the College Board website). In all of the tests, I never missed more than 5 questions. I was surprised and impressed. I actually knew the material. When the AP Exam came, I breezed through the test! I finished the exam and still had 10 minutes left! That's something you don't see a lot in an AP exam.

July came, and I was excited to get my score. I was worried, too. However, when I saw my score report, I wasn't worried anymore. I got a 5 in my AP Psychology exam.

This is what I call, the Psychble (the Psychology Bible). With this, I guarantee that you will receive a 4 or a 5 in the test. That is, if you read it, of course. That's coming from a student!

HASH(0x98bace58) out of 5 stars Excellent Prep Book 2 July 2012
By Dilshad Haleem - Published on
Format: Paperback
My daughter bought this book the beginning of the year she was going to take the AP Psychology class. Her plan was to use it as a resource in addition to her teachers notes and the textbook. The book is very thorough and explains concepts in an easy manner. Whenever she had a hard time with a concept she would read the corresponding chapter in the Barron's book and that really helped her. It was her teachers first year teaching AP Psychology, so he wasn't very good at teaching the subject and there was a lot of concepts that the class did not cover by the time of the AP exam. She spent 3 days completely memorizing this book, and because she had already been reading it throughout the year, it was easier to understand. She also bought the AP Psychology Barron's flashcards, which were basically as same as the book, but it was an easy way to visualize the information and test the knowledge. She felt she had done well on the exam and when AP results came in, she got a 5 on the exam! It is an excellent prep book and works great in unison with the classroom textbook and notes. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to get a 5 on the exam.

I used this book to self study for the AP Psychology exam. While the scores have not been sent out, I feel that this book was really quite good at preparing me. If you use it in tandem with the Barron's flashcards, almost all of the topics that show up on the actual exam will be covered. The practice exams are also very realistic. Even if you haven't taken the actual class, this book will help you pass the AP exm.

HASH(0x991104bc) out of 5 stars Perfect for AP Reviewing 12 July 2012

I used this during my month of studying for the AP test. It's like my Psychology book was condensed into a few pages that were easy to read and understand. The tests at the end of the book helped as well.
