doing past papers vs dr du a1 class, which one is better?
Past papers >>>

Also note that learning capacity shouldn’t be restricted to just tutoring. The beauty of doing past papers is that it’s self directed and you can focus on where you need to improve.

of course it would be helpful, but you would obviously have to supplement study with past papers as well

what happens in these seminars? Do they provide hints/tips? or just general areas where students fail?

Syllabus areas where students displayed strength of understanding and competence in the application of skills will be highlighted. Areas where students experienced lack of knowledge, skills and understanding will also be discussed. Participants will be given advice about strategies that strengthen students’ ability to write coherent solutions under examination conditions.

would this be useful for students? or mainly teachers? I would love to go, but its a bit far from my area - just wanted to know if its something that would aid in my studies.

I think it is good information for students and teachers. But for those who cannot attend, they will be videoing it and will make the video available afterwards.

One of the references in the article, "Lamb, H. (1923). Dynamics, 2nd ed., Cambridge University Press, Cambridge" is available as an ebook so that is easy to get.

Not sure if there is an ebook for the other one "Green, S. L. (1964). Dynamics, 2nd ed., University Tutorial Press, London" but I have a hardcover version.

Pretty sure they are both out-of-print.

So maybe your best option if you want the book by Green is to get an inter-library loan from your local library.

Most students here would not have heard of H Lamb.
Sir Horace Lamb, FRS was at the University of Adelaide as its first Elder Professor of Mathematics from 1876 to 1885. His made major contribution to the field of Hydrodynamics.
He was a Second Wrangler (what's that?), while the current Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, was a Senior Wrangler.
I happen to have a copy of his book: "An Elementary Course of Infinitesimal Calculus".
