How Brainscape helps you study for the AP Physics exam faster

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of AP Physics content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.

With Brainscape’s AP Physics flashcards, you get:

  • +600 Flashcards across 8 decks that are stock full of essential AP Physics concepts.
  • A study algorithm that will empower you to improve your physics knowledge faster than any other study tool or program.
  • AP Physics flashcards that effectively combine the complete College Board test outline with clear explanations.
  • Flashcards tested among hundreds of top teachers & students before being published.
  • Ongoing feedback, statistics, and visualization tools to help you track your progress.
  • In-sync studying across Brainscape’s website and all your iOS and Android devices.
