NO!!!!! There is such a huge difference. C1 is ridiculously watered down.
Had you bothered to read the whole post, you'd have noticed that I said

"C1= P1 - geometric series - applied integration and differentiaton - some other crap".

No; MEI C1 contains no "geometric series - applied integration and differentiaton - some other crap", hence C1 ≠ P1 for that case in particular.

Are you blind?

The sign '-' denotes minus. Allow me to break it down for you:

C1= P1 minus geomtetric series minus applied integration and differentation minus some other crap.

I would imagine
∑ (C1)³ = P1.

6. OMG Even the incredible level of mathematical talk pentrating my normal conversation has been surpassed

Although, those "-" did really look like realting to, rather than a minus sign.

Indeed, refrain from making such presumptuous accusations again please .
8. having looked at C1..4 for revision prior to attending uni to study maths (after a gap year) i can certsainly say the topics are equivalent to P1..3 except now basically there's 4 units.. making each one slightly watered down compared to a standard unit of pure maths..

What annoys me now is that because of this, 6 units is still all that is required.. thus people only do 2 units of applied.. Hating to sound so old.. but come on.. would this not imply the Alevels are getting easier?

Or to quote one of my old teachers when I borrowed the books from him:

Alevels aren't getting easier.. the content is just getting less and the pass mark is lowered.

Still ... C1 ≠ P1, with all them chapters taken out.

This is because, the questions asked in P1 are structured/worded differently to C1, making them difficult to 'tackle'. The spec is different. More work is required in P1. -> This can be seen by how 'A-levels are getting easier' claims...and ....

It was much harder in my day... etc...
Also, the only person who can compare these two modules, should be one whom has done both of these modules.
11. hi ppl actually i need alot of help i am taking an "entry" exam for uni in week and i saw some of the sample questions but the prob. is that i never came across these topics so i need some free resources and websites that i can learn pre-calculus from in a few days only ....
