Free Exam Papers
I have compiled some links on Free Exam Papers and resources that I use when I source for questions for my Maths Tuition students to practice. (Free Exam Papers Links to be found below)
For purchasing Exam Papers, I recommend going to Bras Basah Complex, where many shops sell Exam Papers, as well as Ten Year Series (second hand).
Firstly let me introduce an inspirational Maths Book by Mathematician George Polya. This is one of the most famous books of mathematics ever written, second only to Euclid’s “Elements”. I personally own the book and found it to be a very good read. It introduced me to the beauty of mathematics, and inspired me to major in Mathematics in university. Highly recommended for students who want to learn more about the philosophy behind solving Mathematics problems.
Sometimes, students don’t do well in Maths because of lack of interest in Maths. Once a student is interested in Maths, it is very likely that his or her results will improve naturally. Hence, cultivating passion in Mathematics is a long term strategy to improve one’s Maths results. I will recommend other books at the end of the post.
