    Thanks a ton man! Your kind words mean a lot. Specific resources: nothing but Examsolutions! It's a life saver. Took me about 3/4 days but I had some of the knowledge from my GCSE, so a week or two should be tops for somebody who hasn't! Feel free to ask for help whenever you don't understand something, because you need to make sure you have 0 misconceptions for that unit!

    Update:

    Ran through FP3 vectors, seems fairly straightforward. Attempted the first five mixed exercises, they went alright so I'm feeling confident. I'll go through the other 15 by tomorrow and then move on to the big part: Matrices.

    Ahh no worries lad. Okay I'll give that a try and see how it goes. The likelihood is that I'll need your help but I'll see how much I can do first

    That's not a problem! Don't mind helping out at all. - if you're the type to learn from notes, then sitting at your desk with examsolutions running as a lecture whilst you take notes might be worth a try. If not, just watch, do lots of practice, ask for help whenever you get stuck is the way to go!

    Today was Saturday, so I gave myself half the day off. Woke up reasonably late, visited some family, played squash. I might get a spot of FP3 vectors done after dinner, I've got 11 mixed exercises left, the first 9 were okay, so I'm feeling fairly confident.

    Squash is awesome! You're sweating off your ass before you know it :lol: I used to play tennis, my dad plays golf but I never really got into it myself, seems like such a posh weird sport tbh, I've got a pool in my house so lots of swimming but that's not really a sport, play the occasional football with my neighbours.

    You?

    Ooh very similar - I used to play tennis also when we lived in a complex with a court. Since then we've moved. Also of course the occasional football at a friend's house or something - but nothing major. And of course the cricket You're Indian, right?

    I tried out cricket when it was offered in school, but didn't really enjoy it, too complicated for me. :lol: Nah, not Indian - born and raised Mauritian. We've got a big field outside the house, so football is really easy to play as long as we can find suitable sticks for posts.

    Ah fair enough What do they play over there as the national sport? Over here in Qatar football is #1, and horse racing is a close second. And among the majority of the population who are Asian expats, it's cricket.

    Fair enough! Sorry for being presumptive - I just assumed with Zain Patel Mauritian - That's awesome though!

    Oh yeah, you've got the world cup coming to you soon, right? Well, by soon, y'know. I don't think we have a national sport, we're so tiny and mixed. :dontknow: football is the most popular, I suppose, but we don't have any teams or anything.

    Haha, no it's fine!

    It's creeping up, yes! It's weird to think by the time I'm (hopefully) doing my masters, having graduated, the whole world will be watching the little country I grew up in!

    Hmm okay Yeah our national team is full of expats who were given citizenship :rofl:

    The best ones to do are the ones at the very end without the E (if available) - cause you know they put those in as little challenges

    Ah, are they the ones in the mixed exercises at the end of every chapter? If so, I do all of those, the ellipse area one was fun.
