    How to revise for these types of questions?

    Hello all, so I failed my maths exam and now I have to retake it on the 24th of august but I really need some help. The book that my lecturer said would help has been loaned out over the summer so I'm totally lost, I've looked at youtube and stuff but nothing really seems to point in my direct.

    I will upload the exam paper which I failed and please download it, take a quick skim through it and see if you can help me.

    I can do some of the stuff but the parts I struggle most on is showing algebraically and picking out the key parts in the questions. Any help would be amazing.

    Re: How to revise for these types of questions?

    The good news is that these questions are pretty basic, so there are plenty of books covering them. Ask your lecturer if he/she can recommend another book or maybe even if he/she can loan you a copy. If you are allowed to access the stacks in the library, go to the place where the recommended book is supposed to be (books are grouped by topic) and look at the books nearby that cover the topics in question: Boolean algebra, counting principles, basic probability and basic liner algebra. Look up the recommended book or something like "Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications" by Rosen on Amazon and see related books there. And, of course, feel free to ask any specific questions on this forum. It is recommended to limit the number of question to two per thread. Questions about the first part should be asked in the Discrete Math subforum, and the ones from the second part (vectors, matrices, planes, etc.) should probably go to the Advanced Algebra subforum.

    You can definitely prepare for an exam like this in the time remaining.

    Thanks, i'll try and fine that book you mentioned, maybe they have an ebook of it online. The reason why I'm finding this exam so hard is because I dropped out of school in year 9 so I missed all of my GCSE's... don't ask how I made it into uni lol, it's a long story but I'm now classed as a "mature" student, god that makes me feel old lol but I'll check that book. Thanks again.
