    Nah, you should be fine with Cambridge alone in this exam, although a lot better to source a lot of other textbooks as well.

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    sorry for the late reply man.
    Yeh as soul-searcher said try to use a variety of text books, but the book that works best alone is Cambridge,. Its got all sorts of questions and some questions are really challenging, which prepare you for the hsc. I used Cambridge, but also Fitzpatrick and excel as well as some others.But Cmbridge is good 4 u if u work hard.

    it depends really how other people in the state went, how many rankings are there possible anyway? likw would 20th in the state get you a stste ranking would 100th in the state get u a state ranking?

    Re: Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

    depends on the number of people who do the course. With 9200 ish students, the top 10 places are reported (over 10000 = 20 places, Less than 1000 people = top 5 places are reported)

    You have my sympathy, but you never know sometimes (whereas usually you do know.....which is where the problem arises). Guess its the waiting game now.
    Good Luck.

    2 significant figures? You mean getting 5.0/84 or 9.0/84???

    I know you mean two digits positive integer, or in other word 10+/84. If it is your extra unit, then don't worry about it like Rax said.

    I found the majority of the paper fairly easy though there were a few tricky questions.

    I have never ever got a parametric question correct and never will
