on page 5

also here is a briliant C2 in a page thing which gives you all the formulas we need and there's smiley faces next to the ones that are given to us in the formula booklet!

hope that helps!
Great! Thanks so much!
2. What are the proofs for geometric series?

you need to prove the formula for the sum of a series
look it up in your text book or

Thanks! These are great!
8. What are the reasons for your estimations of the area under a curve being over/under using the trapezium rule?

June 09 4c I've got the answer as 6.133 which is correct but then it asks whether this is an over or under estimate and asks for a reason why. Never seen this question before and it's 2 marks so if anyone could help, much appreciated.
9. Do we need to know transformations for this C2 exam??

Can be either;

If they ask the graph will probably be fairly easy to draw, or it might even be provided already.

Think those above me have got you covered ;P But heres just a quick doodle of how it looks from question.

Yeah. The 2012 January C2 one had a transformation question.

Thanks people! I understand it now
16. I am expecting a big GP question probably involving logs to solve. Also, get all over the proof as it hasn't been asked for a long time.

I am also expecting a difficult circles question.
17. It is worth reading through the last few C2 exam threads, see what the common errors were

Can I ask a few questions?

(1) By big GP question do you mean something similar to the one found in June 2007 (http://www.thomas-reddington.com/upl..._june_2007.pdf) [question 8]?
Though this isn't a difficult example, is this what you mean? A wordy question finishing with some log rearrangement?

(2) Which proofs do we need to know asides Sum of a geometric series for C2?

(3) Can I ask what kind of thing you'd expect to make a circles question difficult. Would it just require a knowledge of all the circle theorems?

Many thanks indeed!

Yeah prob

Just that one

Just one that requires a bit of thought, knowledge of circle thms and trig

Thanks a lot
21. why it gotta be hard @@ after setting a retarded s1 paper

That is the only proof you need to know
