Learn the 14 most challenging topics in AP® Physics 1 and Physics 2. Well-respected AP instructors from around the United States will lead you through video instruction, exam-style questions and interactive activities.
Each module will cover one of the most demanding concepts in the newly redesigned AP® Physics 1 & 2 curricula (based on College Board data from 2011–2013 AP® Physics B exams).
These tricky topics are broken into bite-sized pieces—with short instructional videos, on-screen simulations, interactive graphs, and practice problems written by many of the same people who write and grade your AP® Physics 1 & 2 exams.
