Ah, I remember those days. It's been a long time since I sat an exam (I graduated in 1991).

I've just lost my job, which means that this summer...

1. While you're studying and building a future for yourselves, I'm going to have my feet on the couch watching daytime telly and
2. As I don't qualify for benefits, my sole source of income will be my poker winnings, so technically I can start telling people I'm a professional poker player. I'll probably leave out the bit that I win such a meagre amount I'll still have to sell a kidney to pay this month's bills, though.

Edit - the best of luck to everyone going through the exam mill this month.

Would be pretty embarassing if I messed this one up...
Atta boy. That was the best kind of function I could think of to model win rate of a (really really smart) poker player. I could have picked something a little nastier though... maybe something requiring some rationalization and maybe a trig substitution or two.

regards

Integrals and functions generally aren't problems for me but in the practice tests we have taken in class, I score saddeningly low on vectors and matrices.

I had a lot of friends in high school who did IB. I took the massive AP route and eared 37 hours, but my school only let me use 30 of them. One year of college down....
