Ive got some excellent notes on vectors ill try and scan them in (there on yellow paper) then post them, got them of my teacher helped me no end with what is themost difficult topic in c4 for me personally.
this would help me 2 a great extent if you could do that

I think the formulae booklet is the same throughout every math exam, its not specifically for C2 but for all the modules (for me anyway)
I do edexcel

No i mean they include the C4 binomial equation if n<1 in the C2 binomial equations......

For edexcel the formula book is split into the different modules......
3. The remainder/factor theorems cannot be tested in C4, right?

yes it can, it can be part of a larger (long) question, but that wouldn't be a problem, its easy.
5. unlikely to show up, probs be double angle and other c3 stuff in there mostly. Best to know it just incase.
6. That's right- its not exactly something you have to prepare for
7. So does anyone fancy taking one topic of the integration?
8. i have only learnt the first 3 chapters of C4 - i have 3 empty days before C4 where i must learn it all. Would start now if i didnt have M2.
CURSE my school who allowed me to study a full a-level without lessons at my own pace. LOL.

Well your not alone! personally 3 days are enough to get a reasonable grade for C4. If you also need to study M2, I recommend devoting atleast 1 whole day to C4 and you'll possibly get average grade or higher depnding on how clever you are. And 2 days to M2. 2 whole days are enough for M2. In the end cramming is the only option, and the more logical and clever thinker you are the more better you'll do.

Saying that, its also important to understand every bit of the topic, so if there is anything you don't understand in C4 just ask here, and we'll help.

cheers! have you really not yet learnt C4 fully? wonderful. i thought i was all alone!!!
(and btw to others, when i mean not learn, i mean never ever having set sights on this yet!) 3 days should be fine.
btw, there are 3 days till M2 (well 3.5 - M2 is on Friday afternoon i believe). you might be doing a diff syllabus
11. I can't really do Chapter 6 properly.

And about 1/2 all exam questions are on it!
12. what is this "Mathematcians" that you speak of?

Well I've had a glance at it, and do know the main topics in it, I'll be studying it tommorrow, thats the only exam I've got, so full focus on that. But it is possible to do C4 questions with knowledge from C3, it may take longer but you'll finally be able to answer questions. meaning theres not much new material in C4 hence you can rely on things u've learnt in C3 to help u in the exam.

U shouldn't worry to much about M2, as its applied module, the pure (C4) is more important.

Integration? Its mostly that the exam board sets more questions on the hardest chapter to get people thinking.

Btw, How did ur C3 exam(s) go?
I'm retaking that

I thought the C3 was goodish. Dropped a few marks here and there but should be a reasonable A.

What went wrong for you?

That would be a bloody bother.

People seem to think that overall it was a medium/hardish paper.

And I'd agree with that.

Well maybe you were misguided with your expectations.

Anyway forget all this.

C4 looms.

Is anyone volunteering to do any of the sections?
