Abe Books is really good, I had to buy about 4 books for my English Literature class and their books are about at least £3 or £4 off depending on what you buy considering I bought some novels and they are much cheaper second hand abebooks.com
Yeah, I checked them too. They didn't have Chemistry or Biology at a decent price (about the same as a brand new one from Amazon). They do have Edexcel Maths S1 for cheap but none that has pictures, and if eBay has taught me anything - always ask for pictures. Is there any way to contact the seller?

On a different note, how is everyone organising their notes? I'm thinking to either get a notepad for each of my subjects or have a refill pad to make notes on in class and put them in ring binders (1 for each subject) + dividers/plastic wallets. Any other ideas?

Okay this is how I've organised my notes for the past 2 years (and this year)

project book with different sections for each subject
separate notepad for revision notes
standard "day folder" for notes/ sheets in plastic wallets for the week
standard folders for each moule
and a ring binder for each subject (to transfer notes to end of the module)

Wow, that's a great idea! I didn't even think about a project book, now I wouldn't need to carry lots and lots of loose paper.

How do I do 2x^2-5x ???

is it 2(x^2-5x)
= 2(x-2.5)^2- 6.25
=2(x-2.5)^2 -12.5

the book answer is

2(x-5/4)^2-25/8

2x^2 - 5

2(x^2 - 5/2x)

2[(x-5/4]^2 - 25/16]

Kinda the same here. Just looked at my computing homework and the question is the difference between disk and ram cache, after he spent the whole lesson saying that they were basicly the same.

Hopefully I'll be able to buy everything within the week (+ my books) so I can get everything organised early.

I have Physics then Maths then Chemistry tomorrow. I'm going to buy chocolate in the morning just to survive the day. I've met pretty much all my teachers, it's going to be my first Physics lesson but the teacher is my tutor, at least he knows my name. :cool:

:woo:

How are you finding it so far? (I literally had my first lesson today- a double :cool: just going over the course and doing some balanced equations)
I had my second lesson today, the first one was just watching some safety videos and today was just re-capping on Relative and molecular atomic mass at GCSE level. But looking at the textbook the content looks ok, mostly what we covered at GCSE but it's based more on application rather than re-calling facts. But it's been quite enjoyable so far, how are you finding it so far ?

Haha, lucky! I have 2 teachers for everything apart from Physics I think. My main Bio and Chem teacher is the Co-ordinator of Science so I assume he's pretty good. I'm meeting my main Maths teacher tomorrow :dance:
