We are pleased to announce the publication of a new 2nd edition of MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS AND TOPICAL REVIEW IN PREPARATION FOR THE AP COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES EXAMINATION.
AP Computer Science Principles is the fastest growing AP course in the history of the College Board. The 2nd edition not only reviews students for the Multiple-Choice exam based on the new College Board curriculum, but also helps to prepare students. The AP Exam revolves around 5 Big Ideas. The 2nd edition is larger than the first edition and each Big Idea is not only presented with a set of sample questions to review and check students for the AP Exam, it also is aimed at teaching the content. Every Big Idea starts by explaining the big idea and provide numerous illustrations to help explain the concepts.
It must be understood that the Free-Response part of AP Computer Science Principles is not based on the 5 Big Ideas, at least not in a testing sense. Students are expected to pick a programming language and create a program that demonstrates data management. Python is not the language used by everybody, but it is one of the most popular. In other words, D&S Marketing now has a complete package for AP Computer Science Principles.
The new 2nd edition covers the AP Multiple-Choice Exams and the Python book with its special Data Management supplement handles the teaching and preparation of the Free-Response Create Performance Task. Finally, there is more than a book that teaches Python Programming. There are also digital files that contain teaching materials, which include Teaching Strategies, Python Programs, Slides, Exercises, Lab Activities and Unit Tests. D&S Marketing now has a complete package for teaching students the course contents and preparing them for the AP Exam.
Also available for your students is the STUDENT'S SOLUTIONS MANUAL TO ACCOMPANY MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS AND TOPICAL REVIEW IN PREPARATION FOR THE AP COMPUTER SCIENCE PRINCIPLES EXAMINATION -2ND EDITION. It provides detailed explanations for each question in the book. The author of these books is Leon Schram, who has authored 7 editions of the D & S Marketing preparation book for AP Computer Science (A). For the last 30 years Leon Schram has taught AP Computer Science, along with Cisco Networking, Web mastering and Multimedia courses.
The questions in this second edition are as demanding, or more demanding, as students will find on the actual AP Computer Science Principles exam. It will enable your students to be better prepared. Why not give your students the edge?
