    then you've failed to go through all the exercises in the M2 book, which a further maths student should be doing
    Wot? I don't even have the M2 book mate, just watched a few videos and practised a few papers - there's no need to do any exercises, it's a piss easy module.

    There's nothing that a further maths student should be doing.

    To be fair, the counting squares bit you're talking about is limited to the just the textbook. There has never been a question like that in past papers.

    have fun when you miss out on easy marks for lacking in practice then

    Or perhaps I won't miss out on marks because I prefer learning and understanding concepts instead of mindless boring practice.

    So do I, but the mindless practice is essential to do well.

    And this is A2 further maths, it is neither AS further maths nor regular A2 maths where you can get away with doing nothing... anyway, it's not my problem, have fun losing marks at your dispense, I forgot why I cared, it'll only make the grade boundaries lower if you follow by your little philosophy.

    You can easily get away with doing nothing.

    are you going to write that on your results day sheet?

    come on, even if the practice is unnecessary, surely you should have a mathematical drive to do more maths? just to make sure the ground you are standing on is in fact solid?

    Of course, I enjoy and love doing maths, but I feel my time is better spent either doing STEP papers or learning undergrad maths instead of the dull A2/AS maths.

    Anyone else got this as their first exam?

    Where is everyone with their prep.
    Yep, first exam!

    I'm trying to get FP2 finished before M3, although I learnt most of M3 a while ago; it's a nice jump from M2.

    Yes. Although I've been forced into a class for C3/C4 which is a bit pointless as I learnt them months ago...

    Probably circular motion and every other topic that makes A2 Physics ridiculously easy. You?

    I'm dreadful at M3. My favourite parts would have to be the calculus, circular motion and gravitational problems. Although I quite enjoy it, I'm terrible in SHM; we've recently done it in physics (my physics teachers are amazing) and I'm improving. Centres of mass can also be quite nice. What I really be enjoy about M3 is that it's the first mechanics module that gets you to think. M1 and M2 are quite systematic (for lack of a better word).

    [QUOTE=ombtom;60507051]Yes. Although I've been forced into a class for C3/C4 which is a bit pointless as I learnt them months ago...

    I know exactly how you feel. I've finished C3/C4 around August and I have to sit through the most boring classes...

    If any of you are doing FP3 why don't you join the thread I've recently posted? http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3716503

    M3 is the first mechanics unit that will actually hurt.
    Elaborate pls sir.

    the first mechanics module which is hard

    M1 and M2 are warm up
