    hi, please can anyone offer any advice/ resources? i'm studying 3rd year linear statistics through the ou, the material isn't too hard to understand but the assignments and exams are; the questions are rather vague, but they want very specific answers. it's hard to guess what they want some times. am trying to revise, but there are no past paper solutions. wouldn't be a problem on a pure math module where there's only one right answer, but is on this one.

    i can't get access to papers from brick uni's cos you have to log in. i really need some practise where i'm getting feedback on whether i've guessed right what the question wants. i can't get feedback from the tutors cos it's long distance. one of the few times on the course the lack of tutor contact has been an issue.

    really frustrated cos i'm losing marks, but not cos of not understanding the subject

    happy to pay for papers and solutions, or buy a book with useful exercises in it, but haven't found anything

    Can you tell me which OU module/course it is?

    If you give me an example of a question where you're losing marks, I can try to help.
