My first concern is a text. I'm not keen on standard college texts because, as with AP Calculus, I don't feel most texts prepare for the exam. In Calc. we have switched to Paul Foerster's new book and I feel much more confident in the preparation (I learned a lot more calculus). Since I am starting anew, I'd rather start with a good text rather than re-learn Stat to find out I need to change again. I know the AP is new but perhaps someone has taken a critical look at texts and can recommend one for me.

As a matter of fact, the AP Stats. Committee took a close look at texts and recommended seven. Beleive me, they are NOT a RANDOM sample! They are fine books and should be a reasonable match to the exam.
