If you are in a first year undergraduate course you may not have covered some of the material included in this book. . Semester Two: Chapters 1-7. You may also lose too many marks making 'silly' mistakes in exams. • Third Year: Everything in the book! There are practice tests in Chapter 13 based on these divisions. We have left a number of blank pages at the back of the book for you to add in skills that you or your lecturers think are important to remember but we did not include.not just a vague idea.. hence there are no long wordy explanations. This book should act as a reminder to you of material you have already learned.PREFACE lX PREFACE TO THE STUDENT There are certain mathematical skills that are essential for any of your courses that use mathematics.ma. we expect our students at University College to have mastered (by the start of each semester) the following: • First Year • First Year Semester One: Chapters 1-3. you will find present and later subjects extremely difficult. engineering or applied mathematics degree.adfa.
