Your best bet is going to be the resources offered directly through College Board.

AP exams are scored relative to the entire student body. Just remember that anyone else taking the exam is also impacted by the lack of study resources.

Hello Asia! First, congrats on taking the Computer Science Principals AP Exam!

I took quite a few AP exams in High School so I know they can be stressful. The best thing you can do is prepare. For all my AP exams I studied the corresponding Barron's book. It contains practice tests. There are also free options on the internet if you google them. The AP board also periodically releases past test questions which you can study. Their website outlines the topics which will be on the test.

My son is 13 and taking AP exams (CLEP) for college credit. We use this site to study; there are vouchers to pay for your exam if you use these course materials.

They do have some Computer Science courses available.

This sites slogan is "Freshman Year For Free".

Modern States’ initial program, Freshman Year for Free™, is intended to let students earn up to one year of college credit without tuition or textbook expense.

It is worth checking this out.

Thank you,

John Surette
