    Welcome to my world. You start to get used to it after a few months.

    You only need to answer 6 questions in the paper. My approach is to learn FP3-FP4 (just finished) and M3 to be able to answer a lot of the questions. You could do S3 instead if you wanted to.

    You'll need to delve quite a bit deeper than further if you wish to be successful in STEP III, IMO. Some useful booklets lying around here on hard problems etc.

    Some, very few people do get 6 solutions in step 3. I know madness roght.
    If you are a good mathematician it is doable in step 1 with hard work and persistance.

    I don't need them. It's more of a personal challenge. It may also be useful to get into unis just in case.

    I assumed he meant the ones on the STEP prep thread.
