(I tried posting this last night, but was getting erros)

All the best.
MAP2 is a nice module. Although big in content its quite nice (and useful for furture modules if you continue for further maths).
I have MAP4 today.
Best advice, although late is to just do plenty of past papers.
If nothing else... enjoy yourself

i thought it was good, apart from shoving a question from pure 1 in there which i obviously hadnt revised how to do cus it ad never been there b4. The sum of the sequence thingy, cudnt remember the formula , apart from that i felt it was quite an easy paper, especially as far as the proof was concerned cus they practically told you how to do it by giving the identity u needed to use.

Have to say I agree with strawberiies and sumitk87 - a horribly hard paper. I thought I was doing really well with the past papers and had everything nailed, but this was quite different and a lot harder. They seemed to be deliberately trying to catch you out or be awkward. Only consolation is the majority of people at school agreeed so with any luck, the grade boundaries will be set quite low!!

The entire paper was just awful I think (partly teachers fault for not being able to teach!) Have had to resit P2 from january and although it wasn't as bad as January!! (not that I could have done any worse) Question 1 shouldn't have been asked as it wasn't from P2 and should have been tested when we did P1 who the hell remembers things like that?!?!?! did not like question 4 either that was just evil too so not looking at anything fantastic again ah well

Erm I Think it was the one with prove that cos2x = (random thing i cant remember) using the identity they gave you...didnt find it helpful at all so left the question

cos2x = 2cos²x - 1
using cos(a+b) = cosacosb -sinasinb

you had to use sin²x + cos²x = 1

it was just like mr examiner thought "ok this ist he last p2" and basically they just tried to catch us out, it was not really anything like the past papers, it was loadsa p1 stuff, what happend to the product rule, the chain rule?! Eh , mr examiner? the one we'd all revised 'cos you put it on our bloody syllabus! No no, you just go on give us the area of a triangle, the length of a chord, and the sum of a geoetric progreession which the whole of my year couldnt get to work?? Well, thanks Mr Examiner of ruining any chance I had of getting into leeds!! you've been a great help!! :rolleyes:

dude don't worry there is another module, i'm guessing you've got P3 aswell? Just kickass in that exam and you'll get into leeds. I've just worked out i got the second question wrong and it was kinda the easiest on there.

cos2x = 2cos²x - 1
using cos(a+b) = cosacosb -sinasinb

you had to use sin²x + cos²x = 1
yeah i used that
