AP Calculus AB made easy with a nice tutor

I was worried about the exam but with regular tutoring sessions with my tutor I was able to understand the concepts better and became more confident about the exam. Scored a 4/5 which was enough to get me the college I wanted.

Calculus AB doubt clearing sessions

I wanted to score a perfect 5/5 in AP Calculus AB but there were few topics I had trouble understanding. My tutor explained me the concepts in a clear and easy way. I achieved my target!

Discussed past year questions as a crash course

I had very less time for AP Calculus AB, so I decided to solve only the previous year’s questions. I took help of a calculus expert from MEB who speciliazed in AP test prep. I got a decent 4/5.

About AP Calculus AB

The College Board AP Calculus AB course covers fundamentals of limits and differential and integral calculus. It is equivalent to a first-semester calculus college course. Students usually take this course after studying precalculus. A school that can organize the material for students with advanced math skills can offer the Calculus AB syllabus.

 Is AP Calculus AB hard?

According to, AP Calculus AB had a passing rate of about 60% in 2020. It has above-average difficulty and is one of the longer ones. For having a good chance of scoring well, students shall practice thoroughly and familiarize themselves with the test. An AP Calculus AB score calculator is available at

AP Calculus AB prerequisites

Geometry, trigonometry, algebra, analytic geometry, and elementary functions are prerequisites for AB Calculus AB. The students should understand the properties of linear, rational, exponential, polynomial, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, logarithmic, and piecewise-defined functions. They should know how to draw graphs and solve equations for these functions. A student should also be familiar with combinations, compositions, and inverses for general functions and algebraic transformations.

Is there an equation sheet for AP Calculus AB?

Unlike some other AP subjects, the AP Calculus AB exam doesn’t include an equation sheet while taking the test. Students should memorize the formulas and equations useful in the exam. They can bring a maximum of two approved calculators to the exam.

Is AP Calculus AB worth taking?

Definitely! It pays dividends in financial and academic terms to complete AP Calculus AB. Students can save the tuition fees for the first-semester calculus college course instead of AP Calculus AB. AP courses demonstrate the student’s readiness and willingness for the academic rigor involved in higher studies. It also increases a student’s confidence while entering college.
