    For those entering Uni

    I think this is a great resources to refresh your mind on any topics and learn topics that are not actually taught in the syllabus.

    This textbook (which I emphasise is not mine) contains:
    • Matrices
    • Discrete Probability
    • Modular Arithmetic
    • Some Calculus
    • Complex Numbers
    • Primes
    • Mathematics Proofs
    ...and many more.

    This would assist those going into Mathematics, Engineering, Sciences, Economics and perhaps even Computing courses.

    Have fun.

    It's beyond that... the textbook is epic. I will be using this before I go to university (actually probably this year in some of my spare time) to learn some of the concepts for Engineering - they use matrices.

    I see there are a fair amount of people viewing the link. I will put it into the resources section of the homepage for all to bask in.

    Yeah, I had a quick skim over the pdf. Pretty much all the stuff in it (except for p.144-150 and a few other things before that) is covered in 1st year uni maths courses. A good way to get a head start (if you can be bothered) if you are entering the fields listed above except probably economics.

    Nice to hear someone at Uni actually thinking it's a great resource ... I know I'll be learning the topics covered more in depth this year.

    Hmm... I can't see the download link or any links at all. Is it because I'm a relatively new member?

    No, it's because BOS got restored a while back & so some things have been missing.

    Hey guys... I think I found it
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...Extensions.pdf
    250 pages and has discrete probability, matrices, complex numbers, prime etc. Sounds about right.
