Best AP Calculus BC tutor

With regular tutoring sessions with my tutor I was able to understand the concepts better and became more confident about the exam. Scored a 5/5 which was great. I got admission to the best college.

Calculus BC problem solving sessions 

Even though I was able to learn the concepts, I was not confident of solving complex problems. My tutor explained me how to solve a problem and the strategies that we can use. It helped me immensely in my AP calculus BC exam.

Crash course in AP Calculus BC

I wanted to revise the full syllabus of AP Physics BC with a tutor so that I can fill the gaps in my knowledge. In practice tests I was getting 3/5 and 4/5, but after just 15 days crash course, I scored a perfect 5/5.

About AP Calculus BC

The College Board AP Calculus BC is equivalent to a first-semester calculus college course and the subsequent single-variable calculus course. Its syllabus consists of differentiation, integration, vector, polar, and parametric functions, and series. Students generally sign-up for AP Calculus BC once they have completed precalculus.

In the AP Calculus BC course, the students learn to use mathematical rules and procedures to determine values and expressions. It prepares them to communicate better and present solutions and results using correct mathematical language, notation, and conventions, vital in higher education, research, and professional careers.

AP Calculus BC prerequisites

The student shall complete algebra, trigonometry, geometry, analytic geometry, and elementary as prerequisite subjects for AB Calculus BC. The course requires prior knowledge of compositions, combinations, and inverses for algebraic transformations and general functions. The students should know the properties of rational, exponential, linear, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, logarithmic, piecewise-defined, and polynomial functions. They should have the skills to solve equations and plot graphs for these functions.

AP Calculus BC Exam

The AP Calculus BC Exam tests how well a student understands the calculus concepts covered in the AP Calculus BC units. It also checks the ability to determine the proper processes and formulas appropriate for solving problems and communicating the solutions with the correct notations. The exam has multiple-choice and free-response questions. Students can use a graphing calculator is for some parts of the exam.

Remember that a student may not take AP Calculus AB and Calculus BC exams in the same year.

Is AP Calculus BC hard?

More than 80% of AP Calculus BC students scored 3 or more, and about 45% got a perfect 5, according to It has a lengthy syllabus requiring students to focus and persist through the course units. For a good chance of success in the AP Calculus BC exam, students shall solve a lot of practice questions and gain speed and accuracy. You can use the AP Calculus BC score calculator to know your grade.

What is the difference between AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC?

The main difference between the two programs, AP Calculus AB and BC, is not the difficulty level but the pace of the courses. That’s because the first seven units are standard for both the AP Calculus programs. AP Calculus BC has three extra units covered in the same duration. AP Calculus AB covers a one-semester college calculus course material in one year. In contrast, AP Calculus BC has two semesters worth of calculus syllabus packed in the same timeframe.

It is not mandatory to complete AP Calculus AB before signing up for AB Calculus BC. The two courses have no dependency on each other, and students can enroll in either of the courses based on their requirements.

Would you get a formula sheet for AP Calculus BC?

Students don’t get an AP Calculus BC formula sheet during the exam. It is a concept-based course where the students apply their calculus knowledge. They shall learn valuable tricks and problem-solving techniques while preparing for the exam. A student can bring up to two approved calculators to the exam.

Is AP Calculus BC worth taking?

It is prudent to take AP Calculus BC to get college credit while studying in high school. Universities consider it a good indicator of an applicant’s interest in the subject and view it favorably for admissions. The student is also more confident with the application process and, later on, during the college stint. Successful AP Calculus BC students can save on the tuition fees for the college subject as they have already cleared the AP exam.
