hi ppl, ive just finished my a levels and am hopefully off to uni in september to study maths with statistics. the thing is, i only studied single maths at A-level and now im starting to worry that i wont be able to cope. i really enjoy maths and im sure its the course i want to do, i just cant help thinkin that im gonna be waaaaaaay behind every1 else who did further maths.
can any1 give me any ideas on catching up, im not particularly good at learning straight from textbooks tho!

I would suggest you learn about
- What are they
- What is the argand plane
- How can complex numbers be expressed in the form z = Re^ix
- De moivre's theorem
- What are they (cosh, sinh, tanh)
- How are linked to the trigonometic functions
- What is osbourne's rule
- Their inverses in log form
- How can they be used in calculus, including how are they differentiated, integrated, and used to integrate other forms eg. 1/1-x^2
- What are they
- How do you multiply them together
- How they are relevant to linear systems of equations
- How they represent transformations in the xy plane
These three are fundamental topics in most further maths syllabuses, and they won't take too long to learn. By spending a bit of time covering them before you start you'll eliminate a good chunk of the gap between yourself and those who have studied further maths.
