## Abstract

The AJ conjecture relates the A-polynomial and the colored Jones polynomial of a knot in the 3-sphere. It has been verified for some classes of knots, including all torus knots, most double twist knots, (-2,3,6n \pm 1)-pretzel knots, and most cabled knots over torus knots. In this paper we study the AJ conjecture for (r,2)-cables of a knot, where r is an odd integer. In particular, we show that the AJ conjecture holds true for (r,2)-cables of the figure eight knot, where r is an odd integer satisfying |r| \ge 9.
