    Re: Ultimate Guide to HSC Mathematics

    Hey there, nice guide.
    Just wondering, why do you strongly suggest to do really old past papers (i.e 80s and 90s)?

    Always great to practise as many past papers as possible (esp. HSC past papers) Don't try too old ones..(like 1960s...). Perhaps, if you have time, try from 1980s if not 1990s at least

    the 1960s ones are so weird... It's got stuff in it that's not relevant to our syllabus. Oh gosh.. I hate the font they use in hsc past papers. It's soooo

    Re: Ultimate Guide to HSC Mathematics

    I did 1986 onwards... I think from 1992 are the most effective and good learning papers. In my personal opinion, the early papers are good to test your basic knowledge and build a little confidence in yourself.

    By any chance do you know where I can get my hands on all the formulas I need to remember for the General Maths exam? The ones not on the HSC Formula cheat sheet. Thanks!

    It's a fine book however, I would like to note the importance of memorising the formula through applying it through maths questions. There is absolutely no point in memorisng it if u don't know how to use it .

    try from about 1984/86 onwards (don't try the first 3 years of the 80s as different syllabus)
    you're best bet is 1995 onwards.

    Re: Ultimate Guide to HSC Mathematics

    can anyone predict which past paper will be similar to the 2014 hsc?
    by analysing trends.

    This is pretty much all rubbish, of course.
