    Re: Is Dr DU good?

    Pretty much everybody in my year goes to Dr Du. I see his homework booklets all the time in English class and in the library. So I guess he must be doing something right.

    1(3√3) t2 dt cos(3π/9) = log(3√e) | Integral t2 dt, From 1 to the cube root of 3. Times the cosine, of three pi over nine, Equals log of the cube root of e.

    I haven't been to Dr Du before, so I can't say anything about them. However, if you live near Fairfield/Parramatta, you may consider going to Ngo & Sons. They teach extension 1 mathematics really well

    Re: Is Dr DU good?

    In my opinion, i dont think Dr Du is worth it if you dont consider your self strong at independent learning and learning at a fast rate with minimal chances for questions or personalized help. The main reason people go to Dr Du is to compete with other people from high ranking selective schools and to make sure you are at their level. Its also worth going if you think you arent being challenged enough by your school and want tougher questions/want to accelerate ahead of your school. If you think this does not sound like its for you i think private tutoring is your best bet.

    Re: Is Dr DU good?

    Same my maths and science faculty was really iffy about it bc people blatantly take out their Dr Du homework in class and work on that instead of paying attention

    Re: Is Dr DU good?

    Hey! I graduated high school this year and was a du student (A2 yr 11, A3 yr 12) and I want to say that du isnt the type of thing for everyone. For me, it magically helped me from failing a year 11 3u test to almost getting full marks in the hsc, yes, it is really useful if you are 'mathematically talented' and willing to put in hours of hard work doing their hw, however I kind of ignored my schools math work (we used mif) and teachers will hate you for it. Thing to say is tho, if you cant get into the As, there really is no point going. Try your best in the entrance test note i got 67 and was placed A2, i heard roughly 40-50 is A3 so good luck

    Definitely worth it 100% only If you pay close attention and do the homework, if you're planning to be lazy and take the homework and store it don't bother. Good luck
