S. Kim This review is from: 5 Steps to a 5: AP Biology, Second Edition (5 Steps to a 5 on the Advanced Placement Examinations Series) (Paperback) I simply looooove this book. The books I used for my AP bio was the Cliffs book and this book. The two go along so well together!What I love most about this book is that it is really fun to study. While the Cliffs book presents facts point by point and summarizes well, this book actually makes you feel sort of like (a little hyperbole here hehe) reading a novel. The way the author writes is really cute. There are a lot of little jokes, and in the organic section, he actually makes you get on board a tour bus into the human body. Corny, yes, but cute and funny. At the end of the organics section, the bus gets eaten by a macrophage or something. And there was this :::Aplause::: in really big fonts that made me wonder what it was about. When I got to that section, I discovered that it was a standing ovation for the actin-myosin tango that explained how our muscle works. By the way, this was the ONLY book through which I could understand how the muscle worked.(Not even the... 9 of 9 people found the following review helpful Only the BEST AP Biology Review!!, July 14, 2007 By D. Seo "just perfect" (MD USA) This review is from: 5 Steps to a 5: AP Biology, Second Edition (5 Steps to a 5 on the Advanced Placement Examinations Series) (Paperback) Someone suggested this review book for me last October, and I decided to get it to have it for Biology AP. The whole year I was basically lost or behind in class because of my other AP classes and extracurricular activities. About a month before the AP testing, I decided to "review" with the AP book. I read every single word and took few practice tests. This book is very comfortable read and I loved the side comments and jokes. My AP score has not come in yet, but I felt confident after the testing. I am hoping for a 5, but like I said, I studied a month before the actual test. I also used the Five Steps to a 5 for the World History AP test, and I got a 5 on it. If that isn't convincing, I don't know what else to tell you.

Thus, it was great that it went through a lot of information in a really friendly and quick manner that was SO fun to read. I really think I would've done abysmally on the AP test without this book because I enjoyed going through it.However, I do think it is a little too brief sometimes and I noticed that on some detailed questions and especially the free response on the AP i felt a little underprepared because I didn't know that much detail about subjects, making for not so good essays. However, the night before, I had glanced through the Cliff's notes book and was really really impressed. There is A LOT of information in it but I think it's the best if you want to be assured a 5 and you need something throughout the year in your AP bio class. It covers a lot, yes, sometimes unnecessarily, but it covered all that information in an easy...
