There are two sections on the AP Physics 1 Exam. Section 1 is the multiple choice section while section 2 is the free response section.

Section 1: Multiple Choice Section

50 MCQ in 90 minutesâ€‹


Section 2: Free Response Sectionâ€‹

5 FRQ in 90 minutesâ€‹

On the AP Physics 1 exam, most people struggle to pace themselves on the sections. Make sure to skip a problem if you are unable to solve it. Remember that from the 5 free response questions, 2 will be long ones which is why the College Board allocates 25 minutes for both of them and 13 minutes for each of the remaining 3.
Some resources can help you prepare faster than others since they come straight to the point are designed to maximize your chance of getting a 5 on the AP exam. The book on the right was made by Ritvik Rustagi, founder of TMAS Academy.

It contains over 150 pages and hundreds of questions to help you prepare for the AP exam. All problems also have detailed solutions, and are organied by the unit.
Guide to Preparing for the AP Exam
AP Physics 1 is a 7 unit course that involves more problem solving compared to other courses. Please use the 1090 rule. The 1090 rule is something that TMAS Academy believes in for courses that invlve problem solving. It means that you should allocate 10% of your time learning the theory properly, and the remaining 90% practicing. At the end of the day, physics comes down to the amount of time you dedicate to trying different, challenging problems.
For students taking this course in a proper classroom setting, make sure to listen to the teacher and follow along the course as your teacher covers the material. Taking this course in a classroom setting already puts you above students that are self studying. Some popular books used in a classroom setting include the following books below. I highly recommend students that are selfstudying the course to choose from one of the books below.
For students selfstudying, choose a textbook from the slideshow above. It's different from the review textbooks in terms of gaining depth for the content. Some students are able to prepare for the exam solely through the review textbooks, but others need to use indepth textbooks to gain a rich understanding of the topic. After you have chosen a book, make sure to pace yourself so you can finish the course on time. Try to allocate time properly for each of the 7 units so you have enough time to not only learn the theory but practice. Make sure to practice official free response questions as you use that book. You can find many free response questions in TMAS Academy's AP Physics 1 book.
