    Does anyone else find the Mixed Exercise in Chapter 2 (Further Coordinate systems) absolutely f*cking ridiculous? The exercises prior to this one are relatively easy, but this is taking the piss. I find myself having to look at the solutions on the CD for most questions. Hopefully the real exam questions are not THAT hard.

    Solely out of curiosity, why did you not firm Cambridge? No disrespect to Warwick, I mean, it is one of the best schools for maths and their course is excellent, but Cambridge is better, if not the best in the country/world.

    STEP is not easy quite simply, a lot of people miss their 1,1 offer in STEP II and III, a few people realise this!

    we had this same problem we'd spent hours doing the exercise failing until our ex head of maths came back to visit and said it was a load of *******s and to just do the past paper questions

    But the questions in the mixed exercise are past exam questions.... It's got an E symbol next to it.

    I'm currently doing this and I had to use the cd for most of it!!! This is soooo frustrating.

    Btw can anyone explain the equation of the locus for me??? I've realised that some equations involve both x and y but some are just X=something or Y=something... I don't understand why it's not always an x and y equation...

    Thanks

    I think he realises this, that's why he's asking how they did. I think it's fine to bump threads in cases like this, it's when people bump threads to add their opinion that drives me up the wall.

    Yeah I just was asking how these guys did as they felt the same as I do right now. I'm hoping they did well to give me some glimmer of hope, despite them finding this exercise insanely difficult.

    YES YES thanks for bumping this thread I really need it!!! I did C4 early in Jan and I found it sooooo easy, and I finished FP2 a couple weeks ago and starting exam papers and so far it's really really easy for me, and I even did chapter 1,3 and 4 of FP3 completely and still finding it really easy, and even most of chapter 2 was easy, BUT I left out the mixed exercise because I had to use solution bank for the first 2 questions and I got so frustrated I nearly tore the book apart!
    It's just so embarrassing but hardly surprising when I remember the EVIL chapter 3 Review questions in FP3 about Coordinate systems. I can do calculus in my sleep, yet I can't deal with stupid Further stupid coordinate stupid systems -.-

    Anywhore I'm going to aim to finish this exercise by the end of this weekend. Good to know others are suffering with me
