Best AP Biology Textbook/Review book?
I'm taking AP Biology next year, but I hear it's horrendous! I want to prepare over the summer, but something tells me my freshman year notes won't be enough. Any advice on which textbook/review book (Cliff Notes, Princeton Rev, etc) to use? I used Barrons for AP Chem last year and it was pretty horrible. Thanks!

The textbook that I used when I took AP Bio my junior year: http://www.amazon.com/Biology-8th-Edition-Neil-Cam...

I used Princeton Review as my review book, but everyone has different experiences with different textbooks and review books, so I would recommend digging around more to find a book that you think would suit you based upon what other people said. I really didn't need that much review and spent maybe 10 hours using it as opposed to notes or the textbook and found that the practice questions (the main thing I was going for) were useful.
