OK. New thread cause I forgot to put maths in old one
Hows everyone feeling about it?
I don't like this function stuff, when you have y = f (x + 2) etc. I'm worried I'll drop marks on those. There was a cylinder question from a mock I saw which looked stupidly difficult (to do with volume etc.).

I think I'll do best at simultaneous equations, vectors, questionnaires, loci etc.

Is that Transformations? I have never seen that ever come up in the real exam so I'm willing to leave that and concentrate on something they ask every year. I doubt it will even come up in the exam if It does then I guess the exam will be an awful lot easy

No. Transformations are where a shape is rotated, translated etc. and you use tracing paper.

Just warning, don't concentrate JUST on something that has come up in past exams. Revise everything. You could assume that as a subject has come up on the past ones, it won't come up from being overused. However, you could also assume the opposite.

Just revise everything, you might've seen what happened in English Literature with Mr. Bruff, he suggested what to revise, people followed and what he said didn't come up.

Erm, I know what you mean. The enlargements, rotations, reflections and translations are transformations. But in the edexcel revision guide I recall the fact there is a separate topic involving functions which is called 'Transformations 1 &2'. This to me is a complete new topic. And I am revising everything, its just 1 or 2 topics which I cant get a hang on therefore I am mastering the rest of the topics to cover up for potential marks lost If any questions come up from the topic I missed. but I wont really bother if a topic is an A* one which only awards 2 marks? That's a waste of time :L
