This course does not require the purchase of any books for successful completion of this course. However, if you are interested in books that would offer more information, there are many excellent art history textbooks in print, two suggestions are: Gardner's Art Through the Ages and Stokstad’s Art History. Used copies of these beautiful texts are available at many online retailers, as are their accompanying workbooks. Some students like to have an AP Art History Exam preparation book. Two of the most common of the test preparation books are: Barron’s AP Art History REA (Research & Education Association) and AP Art History. Both of these come with CDs that include practice exams and full color images of works of art. It is advisable that you make use of the resources both within this course and at http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/about.html.
