    How do you approach inequalities, I feel like its just experimenting to find the right polynomial

    I would do FP3 and applied modules. Either all mechanics or all stats.
    Then start step II/III Work on STEP I for now.

    By doing questions. It gets easier after a while or so.

    Don't think there is a thread for 2016...
    I'm not being taught at school can anyone recommend the best books to get etc for AEA and Step I.

    I already had Warwick solutions but I'd like a hard copy of a book and some other solutions banks if possible, thanks!

      This thread is old. Most do STEP but do you guys have any solid tips for AEA?

      I'd recommend, for both AEA and STEP, go over past paper questions. The style of the papers is much different to any other maths papers you will have probably done and the only way to get good is practice. Try not to look at answers unless you really have to, and if possible try doing some papers with other students who will give a different perspective on questions and, without even realising, you will start to adapt your style to the paper. In the exam just try not to panic. This paper is hard and you are not meant to be able to do all the questions like you probably can on A Level. If you have spent a long time on a question, skip it and come back or you will waste time you could have spent on other questions and probably get more stressed.

      If it's any help, when I first started STEP I couldn't do any full questions on papers without answers. With a lot of practice and through talking through questions with someone else doing STEP, I managed to come out with a level 1 and a distinction in AEA. This is just to stress, you are not meant to be good to start with.

      If you run out of past papers for AEA, try doing last questions on c1-c4 as these will be similar in some respects to the AEA.

      I wasn't taught at school either but found, if I didn't understand a solution after trying for a while, my maths teachers would help if I asked. You could also try to see if there are any STEP sessions in your area, I think Bath university do them but don't know about any others. Just try the past papers and eventually you'll get there even without help!

      Hope this helps!
