Demystifying the BC Calculus
Multiple-Choice Exam (Revised)

 

 

There are many topics in the BC Multiple-Choice Exam and many seem unrelated to each other. Students frequently struggle when they go through the daunting process of studying for the Advanced Placement Exam. Where to begin?

 

With that concept in mind, this guide will cover a good many topics that research has shown to have been part of most Advanced Placement Calculus BC multiple-choice questions in the past 25 years. I first explain the concept, and then quickly see how they are incorporated into an actual AP test type problem.  Best of all, this material is FREE!

 

Using this 43-page manual, students will become skilled at the types of problems that most likely show up on the BC Multiple-Choice section of the AP Exam. There are 88 examples.  Students will be then able to test themselves on specific topics.  Unlike the free response section, an attempt is made to try and treat each topic as a separate entity instead of combining concepts (although, of course, basic differentiation and integration skills are assumed in BC). There is a great deal of attention paid to Taylor polynomials and series as well as power series. The dreaded Lagrange error (where there are so few textbook examples) is covered so students will not be afraid of seeing them in the real exam. This guide will provide an in-depth level of understanding so that students do not spend time in the actual AP Exam scratching their heads!

 

REVISED FOR 2017 AP EXAM

 

This material includes the limit comparison test, absolute and conditional convergence and alternating series error bounds, which are new to the 2017 AP exam.  All questions have four choices, rather than five, in keeping with the new exam format.
