101. 0. If you're studying for the AP Calculus AB or BC exam, then I like Larson, Hostetler and Edwards the best, although some of my friends prefer Stewart's. However, for an AP course I highly recommend getting either the Schaum's Calculus or Barron's AP Calculus Review book, those can be really helpful. Schaum's Calculus is full of thousands. Pros: In depth questions and explanations covering all major exam topics. Cons: Cards include AP Calculus BC material as well. Our Rating: 4 / 5. Barron’s AP Calculus AB Flash Cards are a set of 300 physical flashcards covering Calculus AB and BC topics including formulas, functions, graphs, derivatives, and more.
