    Hey Guys,

    I know this might sound really gay, but I need to start doing some work for S2 and C3 as I'm doing them in Jan (with a bio exam) and I'm not exactly a Maths genius. We had a whole year for S1, just to put things in perspective.

    Basically, our dumbass teacher, decided not to give us any books so I wondering if anyone has any resources which I could learn concepts regarding the first few chapters of those two units. Not exam papers though, because I haven't learnt them yet. Resources such as websites, or what would be even better is an online version of the new Heinemann book somehow? I've checked the thread on TSR but the S2 and C3 aren't on there. I have also gone through google books.

    Thanks

    Edit- I did find a version of C3 with bits chopped off buts its not in PDF format. So I need to be online to view it.

    This. Or find them in a library and borrow them. There arne't really many alternatives if you want to closely follow the A-level syllabus.

    There's some good C3 stuff here ( http://www.mathsrevision.net/alevel/pure/ )

    The C3 stuff isn't separated in the first and last two ones, so I'll imagine you'll need to check the spec to see what you need to know


    EDIT: **** it, it's better to just get the books from the library

    I had to do S2 by myself - I found http://www.amazon.co.uk/Statistics-v...8712773&sr=8-2 quite helpful. If you can get hold of this, then do.

    I'm not going to buy the books because

    1) I don't live in the U.K. I don't think we get those books here. So I would have to wait for shipping.
    2) I only need them for one month. When I get back from my holiday, the school will give us books.
    3)I don't specifically want Heinemann books, just something that will teach me C3 or S2, a site like MyMaths.co.uk. However, they haven't got those up yet.

    I don't understand. If you only need them for one month, sell them after one month. You still need them. Very few websites will provide good, complete and free notes, because they could make a hell of a lot of money just by publishing them.
