"Testimonials for “Multiple Choice Questions to Prepare for the AP Calculus AB Exam.”
Testimonials by Teachers
This is our first year to use this workbook but both my students and myself are really learning a lot about how the AP board formats the multiple choice exam. I expect to see a drastic increase in scores just due to being so much better prepared. In fact, we are going to teach BC Calculus next year and I just ordered her BC material because we have utilized the AB so much!  Kristie Hubbard
This book is an outstanding source for multiple choice practice questions. There are five exams worth  nearly 250 questions. They've been updated to the four answer choice format. I use them with Plickers for an immediate feedback situation.  Kimberly Olson
This book is absolutely wonderful. I find the questions in this book are a tad bit more challenging then the AP test and thoroughly prepares the students for the multiple choice part of the exam. My students thought the multiple choice was easy after using this book to prepare!  Tami Ackerson
"The mutliple choice questions in this book are very well written and clearly reflect some of the changes on the AP Calculus AB exam, such as rewriting Riemann sums as definite integrals and the use of L'Hopital's Rule. I would definitely recommend this book to my students as a practice resource when studying for the AP exam."  Elizabeth Waite
"Excellent review book for students! There is a mix of questions of all different levels that really prepare students for the exam. I have been using this book for a few years now with my students and the questions are great!" Elizabeth Chalanick
"This book was very helpful for me to use as my students reviewed. I very much like the accompanying PowerPoint that explains each question in detail. I also asked my students how hard the test was in comparison and they told me the actual test was easier, which is what I like to hear. I also felt the problems were more difficult than I expected the exam to be, and feel this harder difficulty is very useful in preparation for AP exams" Shaylah Smith
"I used your workbooks last year and saw an increase in scores from 3s to 4s and 5s." Melody P.
"I want to thank you for your excellent products. I've downloaded all 4 PreCalc and Calculus courses as well as the Calc AB & Calc BC Multiple choice exams in iBooks. They've been a lifesaver for me as a tutor."  Hanz B.
"I am a math tutor, and this is one of the best books to review calculus multiple choice questions for the AP exam. They are all analytical questions similar to am AP exam.

It is an invaluable resource for HS math tutors, and price is really reasonable for the quality of questions."  Manuela Imthurn
"We use the Mathboat AB Calc workbooks in class and the problems are great to practice for the exam."  Karin R.
"An excellent resource for teachers to enhance and review for the ab calculus exam!" Evanthia Basias
"The Mathboat power point docs were very helpful to help practice key concepts. In addition, I do like the quality and variety of questions in your book. I’ll be honest and say there were times when my students thought they were challenged a bit too much. Now that they have sat for a practice exam though, I believe they comprehend why the challenge exists."  Thomas Meany.
"I was very happy with my results this year. I would definitely recommend the review books. I think they helped reinforce the difficulty of the test."  Beth A.

"Good collection of problems. I really like hearing students discuss the ideas behind some of them."  Tricia G.
"I have a copy of the book and absolutely love it. I often use it for tests and problem sets – the style and set of the problems is exactly what I was looking for." Michael G
"I absolutely love these practice multiple choice questions. They are exactly what I am looking for and much better than ones I have seen in other practice m.c. books . ... yours really seem to hit the right balance of challenge and accessibility. This is a book I would actually feel confident recommending that my students purchase. I cannot say that for any of the other books I have looked at."  Liz W.
"9 out of my 10 students who took the AB exam made 3 or better. Five of those made a 5!!! My students felt very prepared after using the AB review book as well as the MCQ worksheets throughout the year. All but one (the one who made a 2who also never did homework *rolls eyes* lol) said they were confident going into this exam." Pamela

“I am a high school Calculus teacher with 8 years of experience. Every year I teach the class I enjoy it more, and 3 years ago I started adopting this material to supplement what I was already using. It is really great because it forces my students to think about each of the concepts they learned…I want them to be able to apply what they are learning to types of problems they have not seen before. This book (and the teacher curriculum that Rita sells) has become an invaluable resource for me to reach my goal. As a bonus (and proof) I have seen my students' scores on the AP Calculus test skyrocket…I would highly recommend this material.” Garrett Hageman
"My students are getting use to AP style questions by using this book and their grades have already improved (the semester is only 3 months old at this point)." Jason C

“Just the extra review I was looking for. Great book!” Melanie Sacco
"I teach a small group (3 8) of homeschool students in the North Dallas area each year. I am always looking for good practice materials. I have ordered one workbook for each of my students and the PowerPoint solutions for myself. We are finding your explanations far better than the solutions/explanations in Barron's, Princeton's, or Kaplan's prep books." Michelle M.
"I have used Mathboat review workbooks and my students also practiced the questions from the past exam papers. Together, they helped the students get ready for their AP exam. I would definitely recommend the workbooks to other teachers/students." Isaiah G
"I have been teaching AP Calculus for 6 years now, and I'm finding that the greatest thing to help the students is to finish the curriculum as early as possible and then do past problems, past problems and more past problems. There are plenty of released free response questions to work with, but the number of available multiple choice that are well written is low (all the recent ones are secure and problematic to use). That's where your books come in! ..."  Gregg K.

I have used these problems to help prepare for the first final in my calculus BC class. The topics covered were accurate to what I learned in the first semester, so it was a useful practice tool. The problems were similar to the type of problems that I saw later on the BC AP test, so I would say that this would be a good resource for the AB AP test as well.  Qun Shi
Great cohesive textbook for preparing for the AP Calculus exam!It has a variety of questions that cover all the needed topics for the test. Each practice test is challenging and really requires a strong background in AP Calculus, similar to the real AP test. Would recommend to anyone taking the AP Calculus AB and BC exams!  Betty

"Amazing book ... 5 practice tests that are very similar to the Actual AP questions ... you feel you are doing the actual AP exam and sure that this is the best book that guarantees that you will score a 5 with no doubt ... There is also a CD available for order that shows the detailed solutions for every question ... I find as well that the CD is extremely helpful as the solutions in the CD are presented in an amazing way .... There is no book in the market better than this one ... Thanks to the author Ms. Rita as she puts her 18 years of teaching AP calculus in this book and her other publications."  Mohammad
"I used this book to prepare myself for the AP Calculus BC exam as some content in AP Calculus overlaps. This book is extremely helpful and is decently harder than the actual AP Calculus BC exam. There are a variety of problem types with varying difficulty. In most of the exams, problems develop from easy to hard. Given that you take the time to do exercises from this book, you should have no problem on the actual AP Calculus BC or AB exam."  Amazon customer
"This book definitely prepared me well for the AP test, especially since many of the problems were very similar. As a calculus student, I have found that these problems helped immensely in my ability to learn/understand and use concepts learned in class. I also appreciate that it is clear, focused, and is arranged into multiple tests/problem sets that help me organize my study plans accordingly." Melissa
"Excellent practice for a student aiming for a 5 on the AP exam! The content is stellar and extensive. The practice problems cover all of the topics on the AP exam in a organized, concise mannernot too convoluted and unnecessarily complicated, yet not too basic either. Some of the many concepts that are covered are derivatives and integrals (ie with trigonometric functions, logs, natural logs), solids of revolution (calculating area and volume), interpreting and comparing graphs, finding concavities, point of inflections, extrema, and critical points, and interpreting slope fields. The problems sometimes require a combination of calculus concepts, making sure that the student will develop a strong grasp of what is expected. The answer choices were also thoughtfully chosen to be tricky like the AP exam, so students who use this practice book will truly get the full and necessary experience. The book's calculator and non calculator practice sections are perfect as mock exams: just what a student needs to understand the concepts and score a 5. Overall, a highly recommended book that is genuinely intended to help students practice the most effective way possible." Amazon customer
"This book has great practice for the AP test and the questions were just like what was on the real thing" Soflina Wilhite.
"I used this book to study for the AP exam and it was a great help! The questions offer a unique variety of problems that were slightly harder than the ones found on the real test. I was not surprised that I received a 5 and I highly recommend this book to anybody who plans to take the AP Calculus AB exam."Angela L.
"The multiple choice questions in the MathBoat workbook were very helpful in preparing for the multiple choice portion of the test. The questions were challenging and definitely gave me a sense of how the multiple choice was going to be! I felt good after taking that multiple choice portion! The PowerPoint solutions were very helpful, as they gave step by step solutions to help me see where I had gone wrong on some questions and also gave a different way of approaching some of the problems, which was really helpful because some of the solutions helped me make less errors and do the problem faster. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and I have already bought the AP Calculus BC workbook also! Thank you very much! :)"  Kavitha V
“I had completed these problems while studying for the AP Calculus exam last year, and after working through all of them, the exam was a breeze. Working through these problems made the AP Exam feel like the 6th practice test from Rita Korsunsky's book. Today I recommend this book to friends studying calculusThere is simply no better way to prepare for the AP calculus exam than doing these problems.” Irene
“Highly recommended! The problems in this book are very similar to those on the AP exam, and are great practice for both the exam and school calc finals!” Erik
"If you're looking for a book with enough questions that are representative of the AP test, then you should use this book. The questions were challenging enough to test me on how well I knew the content of the test. In the end, I got a 5 on the AP test thanks to these books :)" Wendy
"If you are looking for a collection of hundreds of multiple choice questions, this is THE review book for you. ... As an AP Calculus AB student myself, I can confirm that this book helped supplement my studying immensely. My teacher at school did not provide any review materials and it's difficult to gather a bunch of problems in one place. This book was exactly what I needed. It's clear and focused. Overall, I definitely recommend this for any AP Calculus student, whether they are studying for the AP Test or just their final exam."  Asis
"I used this book to prepare for my AP Exam in May. Although I took Calculus BC, the problems in this book were great review tools, especially for the first semester finals/midterms. I would recommend buying this book as soon as school starts to have time to work through all the problems. It covered all the problems on all the AB portion of the BC test. Completing this book thoroughly is one of the biggest reasons I was able to earn a 5 on the AP Exam!"  BSRI
“The book was very useful. I would like to say that the teacher is really understand what students do not know and need even thought the teacher have not taught me. Questions in the book was touching in my heart because I can feel that the teacher has widely knowledge about mathematic and some of the questions are very challenging for me. btw, I finally have achieved 5 in AP Calculus AB in 2014. Thank you so much.” Hy Wan
“… provides a convenient list of tips…But, they are not the useless (or at least relatively useless) "try to eliminate options and guess, get a good night's sleep" tips that are commonly repeated in all test prep books. This list provides tips that actually actively improve your score. Like how to phrase a certain sentence to keep from loosing points.” Sahil H

"This book, along with her AP Calculus Interactive Lectures is everything a student needs to score well on the AP Calculus Exam.The book comes with 5 full practice examinations for the multiple choice section part of the AP Calculus AB Exam. There is plenty of space for you to work directly in the book. I think the best thing about this book is that the questions actually mimic the type of questions that will appear on the AP Calculus Exam. From my experience, they will provide an accurate gauge as to how well you will do when it comes to the real thing. In the back of the book, there is a list of formulas and tips. The tips are very different from the ones you will see in other test prep books... these tips focus on specific details such as differences in notation or wording that you must not have mixed up. The tips in the back of this book are a must read!" A.C.
"This book is awesome! It covers all the material you'll need to score a 5 on the AP exam, and if you finish all of these, you'll definitely be more than prepared....I would also recommend ... her Interactive Lectures that explain how to solve these problems. Highly, highly recommended!"

Thank you Rita Korsunsky!" Nick
Testimonials By Parents
My son scored high on his recent AP Calculus AB exam and I think thus workbook was a key component to his success. When he began practicing with the multiple choice workbook he was getting maybe 25% right. But by the end of the workbook he was getting closer to 60% right. He even made the comment when he came home from taking the test that the multiple choice was straightforward and there were no problems that he didn’t know what to do with. There are a lot of resources for free response questions on the college board website. But this workbook really fills in the gap for multiple choice problems. Great resource!!" Jennifer Martinez
"Excellent Book. I used the AP Calculus AB Lecture Notes: Calculus Interactive Lectures Vol.1 (AP Calculus Lecture Notes)to teach my daughter AP Calculus AB. Then I used Multiple Choice Questions To Prepare For The AP Calculus AB Exam: 2018 Calculus AB Exam Preparation workbook to have her practice MCQ along with the released college board exams. I also had her practice FRQ using the college board released exams. The approach was very effective and she scored a 5. Don't forget to purchase the solutions (if you need them) from the mathboat website. If you finish this book diligently and really understand the solution to each of the questions, I am sure will breeze through the MCQ portion of the AP Calculus AB. My review does not show as verified purchase as I had purchased the book from Mathboat directly. I have absolutely have no affiliation with Mathboath but am just a happy parent grateful to Mathboat for making such wonderful teaching materials available."  S. M.
