Just need to take out the "vce." bit from "vce.atarnotes.com" and then all the links work fine.

I've fixed and checked these links:
Resources: eg. textbook answers (no actual textbooks -mod friendly), notes, etc
Notes (from VCENotes -not the forum part)
TT's Physics Stuff
Extensive VCE Resources
MattPritchard's Resources
Extra formula's donated by VN users (good for cheat sheets)
Harder physics questions
VN users donated physics notes
itutes' notes
Exams: (VCE exams only)
itutes' exam resources
Fyrefly's cheat sheets
Killerkob's cheat sheets
Bozo's cheat sheets
qwertyda2nd's cheat sheet
Ovalteenies' cheat sheet
• TrueTear's cheat sheet: Part 1 and Part 2
Edit: I guess Rohitpi can just extract the URL's from my post if he wants, but all I did was copy and paste his post into Word and use find + replace.

Yes, but where are the actual attachments? Are they deleted?

Oh, attachments. I read somewhere on the announcement forum that they didn't carry over properly and that they'll be fixing that soon.

Here:
Some of the data... Like avatars and post attachments for instance... Could not be transferred over. Depending on demand... I will code something to port attachments (>2gb worth) over if need be. However, I will be leaving the old forums up for the time being at http://www.atarnotes.com/agora/. They are in maintenance mode (read-only), but it will give anyone interested an opportunity to acquire anything (like avatars and attachments) that wasn't transferred to the new forum.

I think this post should be linked to: VERY IMPORTANT - !!Dot Point not covered !!
It's got a list of stuff that's in the current study design, but wasn't in the previous one (only for Unit 4 though).

It should be pretty useful, I've got a lot of old exams and not that many current study design ones.

So does anyone know where to get exams from the current study design from?

TSSM sells students their 2011 one for $7 Insight sells their 2009 and 2010 years for$10
Neap sells students the 2009 and 2010 for $7 TSFX, iTute and Engage give there's out for free. Obviously there's VCAA 2009 and VCAA 2010 on the website. The rest are more expensive I think. I never realised how cheap some trial exams actually are. Ask your teacher - they should have some money in the budget to purchase some (STAV are pretty good, I like their exams). #### Sm1l3y • Victorian • Adventurer • Posts: 13 • Respect: 0 ##### Re: Physics Resources and Links (Units 1 - 4) « Reply #23 on: September 21, 2011, 08:39:45 pm » 0 Sweet, thanks for that.

Sweet, thanks for that.

Dude, my school is in like $800 000 debt...LAWL lol, the STAV exams are like$4 dollars each and $2 for the solutions (like$8 postage though). I'm not sure if students can order them though.

Well looks like I will have to buy them now... that sucks. Just bought some Neap ones.

Email me if you have any new physics exams, would be greatly appreciated.

[email protected]

Also, which exams are good, I have some Lisachem, Chemology, Itute and Insight. Any I should throw away?

Also, what has changed from the previous study design, because I have heaps of exams from previous study design, and want to know what parts I can do and can't do?

Thanks.

OK, I'll get this thread fixed up over the next week or so for the class of 2012

Most definitely MIT's Highlights for Highschool: http://ocw.mit.edu/high-school/physics/

The study design lists some books in the last page. One of these was Paul Hewitt's Conceptual Physics. A lot of the book was irrelevant and doesn't really focus too much on calculations, but the author explains quite well. Initially disliked it, but I grew to like it a bit more over time. The book is quite expensive though, I don't think it'd be worth shelling out for, but local library might have it.

Feynman Lecture's on Physics is probably largely irrelevant for VCE, but it's damn interesting if you want to expose yourself to more physics. I probably would have stayed in my state of having this extreme dissatisfied with VCE Physics (it's as if Unit 3 Motion is designed to kill motivation and interest) if I hadn't of started reading stuff written by Feynman.

If you're doing special relativity (and you don't have access to a copy of the Feynman Lectures), the chapters by Feynman on the topic really helped me get my head around it. I believe a book called "Six Not So Easy Pieces" had the relevant chapters - I've seen it sold for $5 to$10 at a few bookstores, so it's pretty cheap.

http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/ also has quite a lot of good explanations. I only came across that one recently, the sound section there is quite good.

In terms of threads on ATARNotes, I don't think you can pass by TrueTear's physics thread: TrueTears question thread
The majority of it focuses on Unit 4, but first 10ish pages is Unit 3 stuff from memory. There's some damn interesting discussions that was going on in that thread.

I've got a few more links bookmarked here and there, I'll dig them up again at a later point in time.

Random question but which is the longest Area of Study? Motion or Electronics and Photonics?

Motion is longer, although electronics is the most boring imo

Yeh electronics drove me around in circles.
