Hey guys!

Only a little more than a month until the 2020 Maths Methods exams! I think most people should be starting the VCAA / NHT exams soon (don't stress if you haven't yet though! ), so I thought a guide might be useful to help you focus on only the relevant questions.

This guide builds upon AlphaZero's guide, so full credits to him for going through all the exams from 2006 - 2015. I have followed his format and updated this regarding the adjusted 2020 study design, as well as covering the new NHT exams.

I have checked this with my teacher but if there are any mistakes please let me know!

2019 Methods Exam 2 Multiple Choice Section A is completely wrong. It's just Q7 & Q18.

Although this problem is technically out of the study design, it would still be good to do as it tests transformation more than PDFs.
