AP® Exam Prep Apps are the most comprehensive apps available on tablets today for students preparing for AP® exams. Specifically designed to be used on 7" or 10" devices like iPads, Kindle Fires, Google or Samsung tablets, the apps are available for 12 popular AP subjects and provide an intuitive, highly organized topic-by-topic review of every concept on the AP-approved course outline.

"AP courses are a great way to get a jump on college," says David Pelizzari, Vice President of Content and Curriculum at K12. "But preparing for the actual exams can be a challenge for a lot of students. It's a tremendous amount of content to review. We've got a lot of experience in the delivery of online educational content –including online AP courses themselves – so moving test prep to mobile devices is a natural next step. The goal was to create tools that are intuitive, powerful and affordable."

Each AP® Exam Prep App includes far more than just sample tests and questions. Each are a comprehensive exam prep tool that helps students study the full AP syllabus, then practice all parts of the AP exam. Designed specifically to help students identify gaps in knowledge, the apps automatically create a personalized study plan based on responses to practice questions and simulated tests, so students have time to focus on weak areas prior to taking the exam. In the Biology and World History apps, an embedded eBook provides ready reference to the entire AP course outline along with keywords and additional study questions. A complete list of the available apps includes:

  • AP Exam Prep Biology
  • AP Exam Prep Calculus AB

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances.

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
