    Hi I was just wondering what the hardest chapter in FP2 is. This year so far I'm averaging 75% in my weekly tests for FP2 however we had transformations this week and I failed badly although I was fine with the tests on the rest of the complex numbers chapter.

    I'm just wondering whether or not there's any other topics in FP2 that are harder than transformations.

    If this is Edexcel then most of the other topics are okay (polar integration can be a bit icky, depending on what question they ask).

    Complex transformations left me confused for about 6 months, until I had a random epiphany. Everything else was quite standard, I thought.

    Everyone I talked to said complex transformations was the hardest part of FP2 however when I got onto it myself I did not see the big deal. I found some of the loci harder (the type arg(a + bi) - arg(v + ui) specifically).
