No, the site is correct. Type in "Log[x]" into the box and it will give the answer you are looking for.

that's the right answer in the pdf. (didn't check the working though, but it's likely to be right, isn't it?)
6. Was anyone else completely relaxed despite the prospect of P2 a day away? I have P2 on Wednesday yet I don't feel nervous. I'm actually more worried that I'm too relaxed...

The working is right.
8. Example
Find ò ln x dx

To integrate this, we use a trick, rewrite the integrand (the expression we are integrating) as 1.lnx . We then let v = ln x and du/dx = 1 .

Hence ò ln x dx = x ln x - ò x (1/x) dx

= x lnx - ò 1dx

= x lnx – x + constant

the site here had swapped the Vs and Us in the formula, damn them- use the exam book version
9. yeh thats what the pdf says..
