Dear Future AP Chemistry Student,

Congratulations on your commitment to a challenging science course. Taking on AP Chemistry 
shows that you are dedicated to learning and are willing to sacrifice time, energy and brainpower to be successful in a college level course designed for science majors.

If the above paragraph does not describe you and you are not willing to complete the summer assignment, detailed lab reports, attend extra study sessions, complete book problems and practice AP free response questions then you need to choose a different science class for next year. 

Your first action as an AP Chemistry student is to purchase your book . One option is to find a former AP Chemistry student  AP Chemistry Book Sale and purchase their book (must have taken the course in the last three years, as we selected a new book). A second option is to purchase through  Make sure you purchase the correct edition (and that it isn’t the study guide). The best way to find the book is by searching Zumdahl Chemistry 10th Edition or by the ISBN-13: 978-1305957404 or ISBN-10: 9781305957404. If you want to confirm you are purchasing the right book/edition feel free to email us a screenshot of the book information and I can confirm that you selected the right one! The third(cheaper) option is to purchase a 1-year subscription to the digital copy of the book online at the following website: just make sure you select the option that allows you to access the book all year.
