If you need to teach the book (and haven't given it a thorough read), these packages might be a good idea, but they aren't really going to help your AP students prepare for the AP exam. Most of the packets for Life of Pi and The Stranger (I have both) consist of tons of questions without much room for writing and not the most thoughtful questions. The questions are good for you, as a teacher, to pull from - or to use as a basis for discussion, but not to send students home with as their chief support for understanding the book. They're just kind of lame. The Multiple Critical Perspectives series is better, but not fool-proof - definitely more thought-provoking and less like the old-fashioned worksheets we were given in the 1970's and early 80's.
