Preparation for the DEC 2008, MATH IIC!

<p>So who's taking the Math IIC test in December?</p>

<p>I thought we could lay out some tips/tricks/etc for last minute studying to help some members out.</p>

<p>Other ideas on how to study, what to study, what contents to study, nice formulas to know, programs etc would be appreciated.</p>

<p>I am! Tricks and tips would be great! I just made the programs in my calculator from the barrons book.</p>

<p>Yes, I also found that the TRIANGLE solver function is very useful for the Math IIC. </p>

<p>I know there are quite a few in the sticky thread...</p>

<p>Does anybody know what kind of polar/matrix problems are usually asked?</p>

<p>Also, an ellipse solver program is also useful.</p>

<p>Does anybody know where I could get "ellipse solver programs" or "TRIANGLE solver functions"?</p>

<p>oh god ecllipse solver ones may save minutes on my test. I have been praying every night</p>

<p>I doubt there will be ellipses on the test. I've taken it twice and they've not showed up.</p>

<p>So, Ive finished Barron's, and I feel decently prepared. Have you guys done anything besides Barron's? There isn't much else to do really.</p>

<p>^ has nice programs for these kinds of things.</p>

<p>In addition to Barron's, I've used RUSH/REA. Both decent.</p>

<p>If it doesn't say drawing not to scale, then the drawing is to scale. Learn to estimate by measuring with your pencil lol. helped me on the Nov sat for a law of sines question that I blanked on at the time</p>

<p>Aren't the questions in Barron's harder than the real ones at SAT MATH II?</p>


Yes. Alot harder.</p>

<p>Yes, the point of Barron's is to give you overly hard problems so that you actually overprep for the test.</p>

<p>I would recommend RUSH for the practice tests.</p>

<p>Im taking it tomorrow good luck everybody
i did barrons and got round 680</p>

<p>what do you think ill get on real deal</p>

<p>i'm only scoring high 500's to 600 on barrons..... :(
which trig identities do i not need to know? cofunction, product-to-sum, half angle, sum to product, etc?
this is going to be my first and last shot at it, so any concepts or formulas would be appreciated. are there any formulas for probability? how do you use the calc for sequences and series problems? 84 btw</p>

<p>@azzajack, 750+ no problem</p>

<p>A 680 should equate to a 750+ no problem as otrebmu said.</p>

<p>You should know all the ones you learned in precalc. For sequences/series you use the sigma notation.</p>

<p>Despite scoring 800 on both "Official" practice tests I scored today, I'm not particularly excited for this exam. I totally didn't prepare as much for this test as I ought to have (I bought Barron's but only did one practice test...the tests are so annoying lol and I feel the urge to give up halfway through)...but it seems to always work out that way for me and standardized tests. Hopefully there won't be any topics I've never heard of...and at worst, there's score choice right?</p>

<p>^ Same with me! I look at the problem then I look at the next problem and then I feel hopeless - then i quit!</p>

<p>For people applying to college, remember to put on your app Math 2, not 2c. Math 2c does not exist anymore.</p>

<p>there is no score choice unless you are a junior !</p>

<p>^ only works for 2010 as crunkk said bro :(</p>
