View Full Version : C1 Reading Recommendations
Does anyone have any personal recommendations for text books, guides, and/or classes to aid with the C1 exam?

I personally uses Averbach/Metha study guide. Like it so far but it is only a study guide. I find it hard at times when i didnt see the material in earlier classes but nothing you can't get over if you got some advanced calculus classes before.
So, basically, Averbach/Metha plus some great calculus/statistic book for parts you dont understand should do the trick if the material is new to you.
If you're studying math or have seen the material before.( 2-3 Calculus/Algebra classes and at least 1 statistic class) Just the study guide should do the trick.
Correct me if i'm wrong people, but that would be my suggestion.

I thought the Actex was good for course 1.
That and the Hasset, Stewart probability book were all I used. Calculus is calculus, it doesn't really matter where you get that from.

What juggler said is also true. I never personnaly tried the Actex manual but it should cover what is needed just as well.
I use some college books for statistic that were made by teachers there and they work very well. The thing I find good about averbach/metha is that it gives a very good review of material since i had the classes more then a year ago and tend to have forgotten a few things.

I used almost exclusively the Actex Manual and a seminar in studying last November. I got a 4. Then I went through the Broverman/Averbach during the next sitting and I finished with an 8.
Actex provides good Q & A, but if we're dealing with the teaching aspect of the study manuals, I would definitely go with B/A. I felt like I had a much better understanding after using B/A and I don't think it was because I had previously studied the material in the fall.
