Re: More advicee

It depends how well you can read, seriously. Many online course notes will swamp you if you try and read them too quickly. So my recommendation would be to buy one of the course books that your exam board publishes for whichever modules you're taking first, but intersperse that with bits and pieces from higher courses that teach the same subject matter. A-level texts are written so that you barely need to understand the theory in order to execute the correct method and pass, but at a higher level, you need some very solid understanding.

So, get a good text book for your exam board, mixed in with maybe this guy's site

http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu

and also wikipedia. I'd recommend using Paul's site as a rough table of contents for calculus and algebra.

I got a 189 on a mensa test around 2001, I declined entry.

IQ tests are a load of tosh, they prove nothing, and the only people who join mensa are the people who think it's prestigious to be in mensa. It's self-perpetuating.

I'll be rennovating my site at the weekend and clearing out a lot of it.

If you're looking for AS and A-Level revision, check out Sam Learning. Log in with your school's postcode, and your date of birth followed by your two initials. For example, let's say SW3SU was your school's postcode. You'd put that first in the first textbox. Let's say that your name is...I don't know, Jack David, for example, and you were born on the 14th of August, 1989. You'd put in 140889JD as your User ID. And your password is essentially the same as your User ID. OK? smile

It has a couple of Mechanics and Statistics and Trigonometry as well, and Algebra and Calculus if you're looking for those.

Hope that helped.
