Wow, that was totally awesome, I'm amazed at the quick response I got from so many of you with resources that you use. Thanks so much to all who replied.
I'm really trying to revamp my course so that it more directly prepares students for the AP Exam. Next week is our semester exam. Anybody already have a semester exam I can tweak for my class. I've never done multiple choice for tests and would love to see some good examples.
Again, this is awesome, thanks to all you who are willing to share your expertise, makes life much easier for those of us new to the game. I look forward to soaking it up so I can use it on my students and share it with other teachers I come in contact with.

This is my first year teaching Calculus as an official AP course. I've taught it for the past 5 years and have had students taking the exam, but have not specifically been gearing my teaching toward preparation for the AP exam. I would love to see some of the work that is assigned in your classes. Does anyone have a website that posts the assignments that they give?
I'm teaching using the Larson/Edwards Calculus of a Single Variable AP Edition 9th edition. I'm finishing up chapter 3 just before Christmas break. How does this compare to others using the text? Anyone else using this text? I would love to see what you have for a chapter 3 test.
