    Just a general question about the Solomon papers

    Ive been working my way through them for c1 revision - exam next week! Yikes.

    Is it just me or are they harder?!

    Some of the questions I find relatively straight forward but some of them are really horrible and I would never think that that would be the answer after looking at the mark scheme - which is a bit scary.

    Is it worth doing them or should I concentrate on past edexcel papers from now on...?

    I would do the actual papers first

    Will try and get a few past papers in today then and time myself.

    The solomon ones are ok been averaging between 52 and 59 - but sometimes I cant answer all the questions because I have no idea.

    The hard ones I find are the arithmetic sequences questions they do! As Im sure you've noticed because I have asked a lot of questions about those types the last few days!

    I always get mixed up between when to use the sum of formula or not -

    and I always forget about the a+(n-1)d formula which comes in pretty handy!

    is it worth doing them or is it better to just keep going over the actual past papers ?
