Using the tables
When preparing for the leaving cert students should ensure that they are very familiar with the tables of formulae which are available to them in the exam.
Follwing tests with students it has been noticed that substanial amounts of valuable time can be wasted in an exam situation, as students look for geometic constants or formulae in the book.
This is a new problem that has arrisen in the last three years only. The old tables book had very little information in it and so was easy to navigate. The new set of tables can be described as more of a book than a booklette and therefore familiarity with the document is advised.
Ensure the tables book is an aid to you and not a hinderence.
