    Bare basics, Fitzpatrick, but it will not get you anywhere. I am currently using Cambridge. Explanations are no where as detailed as their 3U books. Our school uses Terry Lee.

    I found Coroneos excellent for 3 unit, had to take adderall to concentrate though, as the printing is so fine.

    1. Fitzpatrick 2U + 3U
    2. Cambridge 3U - it covers the 2U topics as well i believe

    Re: A Comparison of Textbooks

    Please note: I recommend 1-2 textbooks reading the theory and doing the exercises is more than enough, then go straight to past papers for 2/3U.

    If you can learn one textbook and understand the concepts from it well, then you are set. In the HSC you probably won't have the time for 3+ textbooks.

    Re: A Comparison of Textbooks

    im doing 2u maths in year 12 at the moment. our school uses maths in focus and its just crappy...doesnt provide enough practice just good examples.
    what textbook should i use with it? i dropped from extension so 2u seems easy now, i want something abit harder to stay ahead.
    i was thinking cambridge or fitzpatrick? thoughts?

    Re: A Comparison of Textbooks

    Cambridge and Fitzpatrick are decent though in my opinion, I think 3 unit Cambridge and up from 2 unit is substantially better. In answer to the above question, try Cambridge or perhaps Terry Lee books.

    Re: A Comparison of Textbooks

    Heyjes

    Maths in focus is alright :P . Its just that the questions are really easy . But it explains the things really clearly, like i understood circle geometry from there.


    Carrotsticks.

    Coroneos Text books are so old :P . I have one that is hand written by him. and its so old fashioned that it is so good with plenty of hard questions, but its sometimes unreadable :P .
