C3 only covers proof by contradiction and it doesn't even come up in exams as far as I'm aware. It's just a skill. This should be covered in your C3 textbook.

Are you sure because the MEI specification says:
Understand, and be able to use, proof by direct argument, exhaustion and contradiction. Be able to disprove a conjecture by the use of a counter example.
Btw don't have textbooks yet.

They aren't anything special. You're pretty much familiar with direct argument. Counter-example and contradiction differ slightly but are pretty much the same. And I'm not sure how much exhaustion really comes up in an MEI exam.
