    from what i remember of my c1-c3 exams last year, the books were quite a good representation of the exam (the exam style papers), but our teacher just taught us p1 - p3, and that gave us an edge because the p modules were quite a bit harder. its always better to be over prepared isn't it?

    i did P1,P2,P3

    our teacher gave us loads of past papers which helped loads as it seemed as if they ask the same questions again and again, just different numbers

    but as u are doing C's i don't know how many past papers there are

    review exercises?

    also do loads of questions; like 1/5 from each exercise

    u just need to practise questions over and over, so when a question comes up u can say "oh, i know this method..."

    some of the textbook questions are quite a lot harder than what comes up in the exam; some are there to get u to experiment and are extension
