    I did like some questions from 1 AEA paper, with a scientific calculator though. They're quite good practice, but many of the things are way off the specification of C1-C4, so not that worth it.

    Fair enough, my teacher gave them to some of the people in my class for extra revision so I assumed they'd be useful
    I didnt try any myself bc I still have solomons to do. Its a good thing about a level maths that there's so much opportunity to practise.

    Do the Madas papers, 1.6+ difficulty. They're quite good. Solomon papers are good aswell.

    I've left the recent IAL C34 papers for mocks aswell.

    That's nice! High 5!
    So are madas papers demotivating or creepy by any chance?

    You should struggle with them at first, the 1.6-2.0 difficulty papers, tend to have harder algebra and some questions are quite nice. They're made as per Edexcel pattern.

    2.0+ are quite hard though.

    Says attachment invalid, what's the question? Are you having difficulty formulating the right integral? Since from there it's just normal stuff.

    They've added 0 effectively to the numerator.

    \frac{(x+1)-1}{(x+1)} = \frac{x+1}{x+1} - \frac{1}{(x+1)} = 1-\frac{1}{x+1}

    Thanks for that I would have never realised that if it came up in the actual exam

    You could just use algebraic long division or Identities. Remember that's the method you have to use when the denominator and numerator have the same degree.
