    Dust is totally right. The key to P3 is PRACTICE. Lots and lots of it.

    I guarantee you will do well if you just go through all the past edexcel P3 papers - in exam conditions if possible. Then if there any areas you don't get, go to the textbook and do the exercises. This is what I've done in the way of revision and I have to say, P3 used to scare the hell out of me. But now, without sounding cocky, it's becoming more manageable.

    I can remember for my christmas mock last year getting, i think it was 26% (total crap I know), then virtually a whole christmas of revising (whilst being very ill!) - i managed to get 66/100. Not brilliant I know, but now 6 months later and lots and lots of questions later, I'm kinda feeling ready. It's now or never really. Think of it this way, P3 is the hardest maths module (excluding further maths), so do well in that, and you have a better chance of getting a good grade overall. So just keep on practicing - it WILL become easier.

    Same! Im not too good at P3...ususally things in maths start coming together just before the exam but not so much this time! Im doing better in practise questions, but there just seems to be so many diff ways of doing each question and i end up going round in circles! Its also really bad cos i get well stressed about P3 when i dont actually need maths (im doing 4)...i get so caught up in maths practice that i dont do anything else, when i do need to...

    Exactly the same as me. I just cannot do P3 at all. Got a D on my last mock (53% though, over half!), but I don't actually need it due to the fact I'm doing 4 subjects. Kind of makes it hard to get the motivation to revise. I just hope I do okay on the other modules so I can scrape through without getting an embarassing grade, though it wouldn't be the end of the world if I did.
