I fear that this is just wishful thinking on my part....

But if ANYONE else is also sitting FP2 this january then we should unite and stand together.

It doesn't matter what exam board you are taking. Though FYI, I'm on AQA.

Let's help each other out!!

The content is so different between Awarding Bodies that I think you need to concentrate on finding people who are studying the same specification as you.

I agree that it would be ideal to find people who are studying through the same specification. But given how rare it is that people are taking this exam in january, i'm probably better off finding people who are just studying the module itself.

You can see from the lack of response that it's unlikely anyone is studying it...thats why i opened it up to all exam boards.

I don't know about most boards but the most popular board for Maths (Edexcel) doesn't even sit FP2 in January...

There is life! Thats good to hear man (not that your'e not looking forward to it obviously).

Which chapters are you ok with and which one's are you not?

The thing that is getting to me the most is De Moivre! I just hardly understand any of it if i'm being honest. The questions in the AQA FP2 text book really throw me off.

yh de moivres is a pain especially all the nonsense to do with 1+w+w(squared)=0. . I anticipate a crazy question on arc lengths where theres gonna be a crazy integration. The other chapters should be ok i guess. At the moment i am practicing questions from the AQA P4 and P5 papers. I have nearly done all the questions from the textbook so if u get stuck let me know ill try to help.

Nice one! Have you done all of the miscellaneous questions for De Moivre then? Because there are quite a few questions that i could do with some pointers on in that section.

To be honest, i haven't gone over the Arc length part in detail yet, i'm doing that tonight after i finish the chapter 6 miscellaneous questions. But it does look a bit ****ty.

Only done a couple in de moivres misc ex I'm gonna do some more tonight and do hyperbolic functions . Q4 -9 look real bad. but I will probably have them done by tommorow . But from the June 2012 I've done I don't think they are going to be anyway near as bad as the ones in the misc ex

Do you mean 4-9 in De Moivre? Because they are bloody hideous. Yeah i've seen a few exam papers and they don't look half as bad as the miscellaneous questions. Though bare in mind that June 12 was an extremely easy paper. You could only drop 7 marks if you wanted 90 ums.

I'm just going through the hyperbolic stuff as we speak...not too bad so far (i've only done Q1 though haha).

Good luck man....i'm gonna have lots of questions for you tomorrow re De **** Moivre. Peace.

I like de-moivre's and argand diagram questions, I find them to be thought provoking and adds some fun to the papers (if you like problem solving that is)

Nice. Where do you study from? School/self-taught? Internet sites?

I'm self-studying so that i can go back to university next year. Have been having a tough time with the FP2 aqa text book as it's not very clear at times. Im fine with all of the other chapters, but De Moivre is a pain in the arse. Any tips?

I go to sixth form, but I honestly don't learn much at school. To begin with I read the whole FP2 textbook just to get the principles which I need to know and some standard integrals. Initially tackling the miscellaneous questions was a pain because I didn't really know the content inside out, but I kept going at it then I started to spot the tricks in the questions, my advice for de-moivres is to purely bang out the questions and even if you can't do it at first discuss it with someone and when you get the answer understand where it comes from and something I noticed is from year to year the de-moivre's questions don't really change, so quantity helps.

Another tip is for your algebra, integration and differentiation to be top notch. The way I did this was by attempting some STEP integrals which it is probably too late to do now, but it helps with spotting the method for an integral fast. And most important of all just attempt every question with confidence, tell yourself you know what your doing and if your lost sometimes your logic will help you if you utilise it.

Final tip, something I found with other a-level modules is that you can let yourself 'fall asleep' in the papers and by that I mean you go into cruise-control because a solution to a question doesn't really require thinking, so don't 'fall asleep', every part to a question has a significance which will make the rest of the question easier in one way or another, if you 'fall asleep' you will not spot the significance of the previous parts to a question, so keep on your toes!
