AP Physics Tutoring Don't Slip Up

There are three main brands of AP Physics in today’s school system: AP Physics 1, AP Physics C Mechanics, and AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism. AP Physics 1 does not use any calculus in its curriculum, whereas the other two do. Any engineering hopeful should find themselves in one of these classes. All AP Physics classes involve lab work, and depending on the teacher, the lab report requirements may be stringent or lax. It is important not to fall behind on any one topic on this class because the topics lock together like puzzle pieces. In fact, there are fables of finals consisting of a single question with all of the topics interlocking, like some sort of educational Rube Goldberg machine. It is important to complete regular AP review assignments throughout the year to prevent a low AP score. Physics is one of my very favorite courses, and I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2010 with a degree in Physics and Applied Mathematics.

AP Physics 1 or AP Physics C?

As long as you are a taking calculus course the same year, the most is to be gained by taking AP Physics C. In you are not taking calculus, stick to AP Physics 1.


Stay on top of topics

Because each of the chapters in the table of contents for this course build on one another, you'll want to be sure you have a solid understanding of each before moving onto the next one.


Earn college credit

Most colleges will give credit for Physics One or Physics Two upon earning a grade of a 4 or a 5 on the AP Physics 1 or C tests. What will you do with all of the time you save?
