He says his school follows this system.
This is the thing that is surprising me as well, how can somebody do FP2 without doing C3 and C4.
Look at this thread.

Okay thanks guys.
God knows, my school is stupid so I'm doing FP2 first.
I've hardly had any tuition for it because since I'm the only one doing Further Maths, they've shafted it to "enrichment" which is one lesson a week.
I'd rather just get on with it though and try get the highest grade possible rather than throw a fuss.
EDIT: What I'd really appreciate actually, is if someone could tell me if the questions are repeated a lot. I haven't had a chance to look at any past papers yet but if the same sort of questions come up in every series, then perhaps I can get away just learning certain aspects appropriate to FP2.

Alright guys, just a bump on this thread. I know you've already been helpful but I just want to confirm that what I'm doing is right. Basically, I've decided to learn much of C3/C4 in the coming week. You might be thinking, what the ****? But I'm willing to work continuously on it, and I did C2 in less than a week so that's some hope.
These are the topics that I have chosen:
Core 3 Functions
Core 3 Algebraic Fractions
Natural Logs / Euler's Number
I'm hoping to avoid vectors really, and also binomial expansion. I have a very good understanding of the binomial expansion in C2, and that includes the nCr method as well as that formula for the form: (1+ax)^n.
So if I comprehensively learn all of that, do you think I should be good to start FP2?
EDIT: Also guys, can you perhaps suggest what order I should learn them in? I don't want to have to start doing differentiation, and then come up with a trig identity I've never heard of. Thanks.
