A companion to the comprehensive AP® Exam Prep Apps released in March, the new AP® Exam Review Flashcards app lets students use their phone or tablet to do rapid reviews of key terms and concepts using a familiar flashcard format. Content for 12 popular AP® courses is contained in a single app. Students select an AP subject, pick the topics to practice, and can choose from a 10-card quick 'blitz' mode or a longer reviews on selected topics. Cards cover key terms, people, places, definitions, formulas, and concepts based on the official AP course outline. Students can swipe cards into the "Got It" or "Study Again" piles. A built-in Stats view shows a topic-by-topic summary of what they've mastered, and users can adjust card timer, frequency, and randomization in the Settings panel. 

Courses included in the app are:

  • AP Biology
  • AP Calculus AB
  • AP Calculus BC

Students or teachers can unlock all the cards for just the course they need for only $2.99-3.99 per course. For teachers or schools with many AP offerings, a "full" version of the app with all 6,000+ cards unlocked in all 12 courses is available for or $34.99. A 50% discount is also available on the "full" product for schools which purchase through the Apple Volume Purchase Program.
