This is a rigorous, college-level course. We recommend students complete Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus & Trigonometry before enrolling in AP Calculus AB. In particular, students need to understand the notion of functions and be familiar with trigonometric functions. Please visit the College Board’s website for a detailed list of topics students should be familiar with prior to taking the course and for more information about the AP exam. For help determining if your student is ready for this course, please use our self-graded AP Calculus AB Readiness Test.
