You looking forward to starting second year?

I visited Warwick a couple of months ago - I only went to the castle though.

The castle definitely is, but I haven't seen any other parts of Warwick.

Surely all maths is interesting!

I'm looking through 'a concise introduction to pure mathematics' at the moment, you?

I prefer applied, but I haven't found any applied books that are as easy to get into and follow as this one is!

I don't know, I got it from the library at uni.

I have a question for people on here: do you study in the library, or do you study in some sort of 'reading room'? We have a reading room at my uni that my friends and I go in most days (when we are uni), but there is only enough room for like 30 students, so I wonder where all of the rest of maths students go to..?

How is that even possible, that place is a nightmare, always packed full of people talking and stuff. The game in my year at least has always been to walk around until you find an empty supervision area

Well we tend to go there after 9pm-ish, and it is always completely empty, or maybe a couple of people are there. You're not going to find any space one hour before a deadline, for example.

It depends on the kind of environment you're looking for. Personally, I work best either somewhere totally quiet or where there are loads of people talking. I can't work well if there's just one person talking and I can hear their entire conversation.

For quiet/empty areas, one option is to head to the Westwood campus where around the education department there are various buildings with spaces to work dotted around.

I have never used text books in uni - but when a module has no printed notes, and no solutions to any assignment questions that's what I hate.

No solutions to assignment questions?? That's so harsh.

My unis policy is that we have to get solutions to assignments!

Well you have a very generous uni - we only get solutions to some modules, but they are getting better at releasing them. Very very few past paper solutions too..

We are only guaranteed for lecturers to go through the last past paper in class, it's up to them if they want to release/go through any more papers.

Do you have problem classes where you go through examples similar to assignment questions?
