The questions contained in this AP® Calculus AB Practice Exam are written to the content specifications
of AP Exams for this subject. Taking this practice exam should provide students with an idea of their
general areas of strengths and weaknesses in preparing for the actual AP Exam. Because this AP
Calculus AB Practice Exam has never been administered as an operational AP Exam, statistical data are
not available for calculating potential raw scores or conversions into AP grades.
This AP Calculus AB Practice Exam is provided by the College Board for AP Exam preparation. Teachers
are permitted to download the materials and make copies to use with their students in a classroom setting
only. To maintain the security of this exam, teachers should collect all materials after their administration
and keep them in a secure location. Teachers may not redistribute the files electronically for any reason.

AP® Calculus AB
Directions for Administration
The AP Calculus AB Exam is 3 hours and 15 minutes in length and consists of a multiplechoice section and a
freeresponse section.
The 105minute twopart multiplechoice section contains 45 questions and accounts for 50 percent of the
final grade. Part A of the multiplechoice section (28 questions in 55 minutes) does not allow the use of a
calculator. Part B of the multiplechoice section (17 questions in 50 minutes) contains some questions for
which a graphing calculator is required.
The 90minute twopart freeresponse section contains 6 questions and accounts for 50 percent of the
final grade. Part A of the freeresponse section (3 questions in 45 minutes) contains some questions
or parts of questions for which a graphing calculator is required. Part B of the freeresponse section
(3 questions in 45 minutes) does not allow the use of a calculator. During the timed portion for Part B,
students are permitted to continue work on questions in Part A, but they are not allowed to use a
calculator during this time.
A 10minute break should be provided after Section I is completed. Students should not have access to their
graphing calculators during the break.
The actual AP Exam is administered in one session. Students will have the most realistic experience if a complete
morning or afternoon is available to administer this practice exam. If a schedule does not permit one time period
for the entire practice exam administration, it would be acceptable to administer Section I one day and Section II
on a subsequent day.
Total scores on the multiplechoice section are based only on the number of questions answered correctly. No
points are deducted for incorrect answers and no points are awarded for unanswered questions.
Graphing calculators are required to answer some of the questions on the AP Calculus AB Exam. Before
starting the exam administration, make sure each student has a graphing calculator from the approved list
at http://www.collegeboard.com/ap/calculators. During the administration of Section I, Part B, and
Section II, Part A, students may have no more than two graphing calculators on their desks; calculators
may not be shared. Calculator memories do not need to be cleared before or after the exam. Since
graphing calculators can be used to store data, including text, it is important to monitor that students are
using their calculators appropriately.
It is suggested that Section I of the practice exam be completed using a pencil to simulate an actual
administration. Students may use a pencil or pen with black or dark blue ink to complete Section II.
Teachers will need to provide paper for the students to write their freeresponse answers. Teachers should
provide directions to the students indicating how they wish the responses to be labeled so the teacher will
be able to associate the response with the question the student intended to answer.
Instructions for the Section II freeresponse questions are included. Ask students to read these instructions
carefully at the beginning of the administration of Section II. Timing for Section II should begin after you
have given students sufficient time to read these instructions.
Remember that students are not allowed to remove any materials, including scratch work, from the testing
site.

Instructions for Section II FreeResponse Questions
Write clearly and legibly. Cross out any errors you make; erased or crossedout work will not be graded.
Manage your time carefully. During the timed portion for Part A, work only on the questions in Part A. You are
permitted to use your calculator to solve an equation, find the derivative of a function at a point, or calculate the
value of a definite integral. However, you must clearly indicate the setup of your question, namely the equation,
function, or integral you are using. If you use other builtin features or programs, you must show the mathematical
steps necessary to produce your results. During the timed portion for Part B, you may continue to work on the
questions in Part A without the use of a calculator.
For each part of Section II, you may wish to look over the questions before starting to work on them. It is not
expected that everyone will be able to complete all parts of all questions.
• Show all of your work. Clearly label any functions, graphs, tables, or other objects that you use. Your work
will be graded on the correctness and completeness of your methods as well as your answers. Answers
without supporting work may not receive credit. Justifications require that you give mathematical
(noncalculator) reasons.
• Your work must be expressed in standard mathematical notation rather than calculator syntax. For example,
5 2

x dx may not be written as fnInt(X2, X, 1, 5).
• Unless otherwise specified, answers (numeric or algebraic) need not be simplified. If you use decimal
approximations in calculations, your work will be graded on accuracy. Unless otherwise specified, your final
answers should be accurate to three places after the decimal point.
• Unless otherwise specified, the domain of a function f is assumed to be the set of all real numbers x for
which f x is a real number.

2. Let R and S in the figure above be defined as follows: R is the region in the first and second quadrants
bounded by the graphs of 23y x=  and 2 .xy = S is the shaded region in the first quadrant bounded by
the two graphs, the xaxis, and the yaxis.
(a) Find the area of S.
(b) Find the volume of the solid generated when R is rotated about the horizontal line 1.y = 
(c) The region R is the base of a solid. For this solid, each cross section perpendicular to the xaxis is an
isosceles right triangle with one leg across the base of the solid. Write, but do not evaluate, an integral
expression that gives the volume of the solid.

(c) Is your approximation in part (b) an underestimate or an overestimate of the average temperature? Give a
reason for your answer.
(d) Are the data in the table consistent with or do they contradict the claim that the temperature of the oven is
increasing at an increasing rate? Give a reason for your answer.
