AP Physics Tutoring Don't Slip Up

There are four main brands of AP Physics: AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2, which don’t require calculus, and AP Physics C Mechanics, and AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism, which do. Students applying to  engineering programs should find themselves in one of these classes. It is important not to forget any one topic because they 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.

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?
