    they were okay to do in class etc, but when I turned the page in a past paper etc and seen "Show that tan4x = ..." I always got a "oh ****" feeling :laugh:
    Loool that's true it's because u panic. Happens to me loads of time.. in other topics.

    If you find integration dodgy then you should just practice loads of questions on integration. That's really the only way to do it. You need to learn the tricks.
    Yeah I'll have to. I'm going to do the second half of the chapter again - like 2 times. Yeah, there are definitely tricks that you need to know .

    C3 trig is way easier than C4 integration. However, I find C4 integration easier than M1 in general.

    So C4 integration isn't too hard once you practice.

    Lol M1 is killer. Though I don't practice anything lol (just so dopy), C4 integration is fine I love it. Sort of same as trig atm but let's see it does get harder kind of - just make more mistakes tbh.
