If you want your students to earn college credit for AP Statistics - use this book!

Dr. Martin Sternstein has outdone himself again. With each new edition, this fabulous review book includes more topics, better explanations, more practice problems based on recent AP exams, improved rubrics, and better technology. This review book is far and away the best on the market. Professor Sternstein is a true master teacher. I use this review book religiously both throughout the school year as well as at test prep time. My students have been running a 90% pass rate on the AP Statistics exam - which compares nicely to the national 60% pass rate. Use this book - you won't regret it. Teacher Tip: Use this book in conjunction with Dr. Sternsteins flashcards - the kids love them!

Good book for relaxed AP review

Barron's books tend to have a more cramped style than Princeton review and are unpleasing to the eye, but the content in this book is just plain better. I am writing this review after receiving a 5 on the AP Statistics exam after using this book. Its explanations of key concepts are better than Princeton Review's, which tend to be confusing at times, which is enough for me to dislike it. Princeton review also assumes that you are stupid and give formulas that are unintuitive but get you the answer. Due to the cramped style, I'd recommend you give yourself a bit of time to get used to it and slowly look through it; it will serve you well.

Better than the textbook I had to use...

I never liked AP Stats. To me it was a boring, watered down class that paled in comparison to more interesting math classes like AP Calculus. So, during the course of the year, I didn't really bother to learn the stats. The teacher gave us these ridiculously detailed formula packets WITH INSTRUCTIONS AND DEFINITIONS, so the in-class tests were essentially a joke. Great for grade inflation, but lousy for when you want to take the standardized AP Stats exam which affords the tester no notes. It was about a week before I took the exam that I turned to Barron's. The subject matter is very well explained. Heck, it's clearer than the presentation in Utts, and the problems are actually worth doing (AP level and above in terms of thinking needed) unlike those in elementary stats textbooks. So as I diligently worked for about 4 hours per day during the week before the exam, I found myself quite knowledgeable about statistics and even began to see that it wasn't as boring as I thought it was. The book covers absolutely everything you need, from the various tests to how to use the calculator. The problems make SURE you understand the stuff and have it burned into your head come test day. The practice tests, while MUCH harder than the AP stats test I took for real, gave me a good sense of the distribution of the topics as well as what it's like to do stats problems in the "real" time limit. Overall, this is a very comprehensive and well written guide and will help you do well on the exam. If you're interested, I got a 5. Good luck!

my highschooler swears this book is helping her ace tests

My daughter has been using this book for a few weeks now and says it is helping her much, much more than other similar AP books she has tried. this is the book recommended by teachers. It has the same test Q and A that my daughter's teacher uses in class. Great book.

Great book!

The problems are challenging and thought-provoking. Definitely a good study tool! They are a great deal more difficult than those on the actual AP exam, however. This book expects a lot of detailed knowledge that simply is not needed on the exam.
