I want to learn AP Physics by myself over the schoolyear/summer... well enough so I can pass the AP test with a high score (4, prefer 5

)...

Could you guys suggest some books? I am not very good at physics, last course I took was a freshman physics course (got A on final tho

), but I am willing to devote a lot of time to this

This is listed as the text book for AP Physics

Physics, Fifth Edition

John Cutnell, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale
Ken Johnson, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale

I'm an Aussie so haven't heard of AP Physics, I just did a Google search with AP Physics in the "Exact Phrase" field.

Have a look for more as there was over 15000 hits. You should find something

BTW, AP Physics is College-equivalent physics taken in high school (usually little easier than one in real college
