    should I learn the series chapter before the proof by indication chapter in FP1? Any point? Trying to think of the best way to self teach it as to 'lay the foundations'....
    definitely

    Induction should be last

    Is the best route for getting to grips with induction just powering through worksheets? If so, I will do series tomorrow, induction sunday, then induction worksheets in my frees next week.

    Sure
    then revisit induction just before STEP with harder non FP1 problems

    TeeEm, I am working through your special paper Z at the moment and I have come up to question 4. I found completing the square straight forward and I got to the point where you square rooted both sides and then added x/(x-1). However from here it wasnt obvious to me that I should further simplify. Should this sort of thing be intuitive for an imperial hopeful? If so how could I best develop this sort of intuition - just more hard problems? If it means anything ive only recently started dabbling in more challenging mathematics

    just practice and experience ... It is takes time... you will see it better/easier next time...
    these papers are not as easy as they look.

    I hope to upload the paper U plus solutions next week.
    Work with open solutions at this stage
    all the best

    Teem, I was wondering if you had any resources for undergraduate mathematics?
    If so how helpful would these be for first year undergrad maths?

    Lastly, do you have any advice on how to succeed in a maths degree?
    Thanks

    edothero has already gave you a link.

    (if you need more up to date or download by topic all in one go to my site in my profile)
    My resources will only help with methods (typically around 1/4 of the first 2 years)

    Success techniques vary from individual ...
    for me personally was "mathematical obsession" which I would not recommend as it is unhealthy ...

    Good luck

    I am not TeeEm but AoPS is probably your best bet!

    number theory is pure maths and I do not do pure maths ...
    On a serious note I have an amazing book on number theory, but the problem is that is not in English.
