AP Final Review: Physics 1


Choose your state to begin your registration:


Excel Test Prep's AP Physics 1 Final Review is the best way to prepare for the your exam. It is a 12-hour intensive workshop that reviews topics on the AP Physics 1 exam and explores test-taking strategies and tips. We use practice AP Exam problem sets to get you very familiar with the level of difficulty of these exams. These exam problem sets are reviewed in class for a more targeted approach to common problems.

Excel Test wants to help you maximize your score. After taking our Final Review course, the AP Physics 1 Exam will be a cinch!

We have three separate courses for AP Physics 1, 2 and C. Please be sure to enroll in the correct one.

Course Format:

  • 12 hours: 4 classes of 3 hours each
  • Unique, highly effective strategies
  • Experienced, dynamic specialized instructors

Our  AP Physics 1 Final Review covers the following material:

  • Kinematics
  • Dynamics: Newton's Laws
  • Circular motion and gravitation
  • Energy
  • Momentum
  • Simple harmonic motion
  • Torque and rotational motion
  • Electric charge and electric force
  • DC circuits
  • Mechanical sounds and waves

Special care is taken to be sure that we cover the material as thoroughly as the Physics 1 exam requires. 

What is the difference between AP Physics 1, 2 and C?
AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory, college-level physics course. AP Physics 1 was designed to be a first-year physics course which you can take without prior physics experience. The AP program recommends that students have at least taken geometry and be concurrently taking Algebra II while taking this course. If you’re not that far along in math yet, consider taking a different science class until you’re caught up, as math is very important in physics. AP Physics 2 is also an algebra-based, college-level physics course but covers more advanced content than AP Physics 1. AP Physics 2 was designed to be a second-year physics course. This means it could come after AP Physics 1 or any first-year physics course.

Both AP Physics C courses are calculus-based, meaning you should have already taken calculus or concurrently be taking calculus while you take either AP Physics C course. This is the main factor that makes Physics C more challenging than Physics 1 and Physics 2. The two topics are sometimes taught as the same course even though there are two different exams, with each topic being taught over one semester.

Which AP Physics exam should I take?
There are 3 total AP Physics exams:

  • AP Physics 1
  • AP Physics 2
  • AP Physics C

Students enrolled in AP Physics 1 should take the AP Physics 1 exam. Students enrolled in AP Physics 2 should take the AP Physics 2 exam. Students enrolled in any AP Physics C course can choose the AP Physics C exam.  

The AP Physics 1 and 2 exams are 3 hours; the AP Physics C exams are one and a half hours each.
