    Compared to FP2, a doddle.

    It's easy to understand, but the exam questions are a bit harder.

    It's not much more difficult compared to the other modules. I struggled a bit with Vectors.

    Edit: While the topics were mostly easy to get through, I found that the exam questions were a bit tough to prepare for.
    Just give yourself enough time to prepare and you should be fine.

    I thought it was the hardest unit I took by quite a margin.

    looool

    But personally I hate these types of questions because it's as subjective as music. Some will find FP3 hard, others wont.

    I hated S2, spent little time on it and found it to be up there on difficulty.

    I don't know whether I should take this or S3 for a maths and stats/econ degree. I'm about to start S2 so I'll end up doing S3 a bit later on in the year. FP2 is alright so far, just got the last two chapters to do. How long is FP3 in comparison to FP2? Also I should note that I haven't started C4 yet.
