    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......

    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.

    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. :rolleyes:

    Good luck for your exams

    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

    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.

    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?
