ooh, trigs not much fun haha.

I'm just at the start of knowing the identities off by heart.

1/cosx = secx , 1/tanx = cotx and 1/sinx = cosecx is hopefully right.

then cotx = cosx/sinx and tanx = sinx/cosx.

I think are the only ones i need to know in order to derive the others from sin^2x + `cos^2x = 1

I'll check later and probably found they're all wrong haha.
Exactly, I find it quite boring and therefore it's difficult trying to get myself to do the work. >.<

Haha, I'm pretty sure all the ones you stated above are perfectly correct.
2. Should I use this for GCSE revision?
3. Just did my C4 paper, I really need to practise vectors and hard differential equations... and not doing -ve x -ve = -ve in friggin binomial expansions!!!

Differential equations are awful. Vectors are alright but there's a lot of methods to remember for different types of questions.
5. I got 42 / 64 in the June 09 paper I just did (took off the 11 marks for the questions i've not been taught).

That puts me halfway between a C and a B which i'm happy with at this stage. A few silly mistakes and my integration by substition / by parts is weak which lost me around 8 marks at the end.

The one in he June 2005 paper I did was horrendous. I just hope they don't get harder than that because I can do simpler ones. Completely agree with you on vectors. I always forget to change the limits with integration by substitution XD I managed to remember for this paper though!

Yes, yes you should.

~Logging out time!~

Finishing off C3 and then move back onto doing a bit more Biology unit 5. I might start writing an essay actually.. hmm..
9. Starting my Criminal reading for my S2 now, highlighting- reallt want to understand! xD Also if any of you guys are doing Economics or B Studies, History i can help i took them last year for Alevel and finished with A and A
10. So I managed to get everything that I wanted to done - will continue with the rest of my essay tomorrow morning!
11. (Original post by Excuse Me!)
is it hard? are you on aqa?

the last thing i need is a paper full of substitiution and modulus this year. Limiting the rest of the integration would also be a bonus haha!
AQA is so so if you get what i mean,like i don't know how to gauge my progress even if i am doing well (if that makes sense lol) . if you need specific questions for C3 or any module for that matter look no further than my favourite

(browse the questions by topic for your specific needs)

i hope that helps ,if i can find any more resources i'll let you know
12. Oh anddd btw I'll be here at 8:30am tomorrow (possibly slightly earlier) for anyone else that may also be up for it!

Yay, thanks - There's just so much to do + frankly not enough time, got to make the absolute most of our weekends! + you're more than welcome - I'm so glad to hear it's been of use!

Goodnight for now + sleep well though. - Perhaps I'll see you tomorrow.

That looks good thanks. I guess if you keep doing past papers and compare the score you can track it but even then tests vary in difficulty.

I scavenge for resources haha. http://www.thechalkface.net/resources/notformulabooks/ is quite nice. If I need more specific stuff I go on TES haha.

I take it you're also on AQA?
