*HSC Mathematics (Advanced, Extension 1 and Extension 2)*

*An Open Source Guide to Acing the HSC*

This book covers the New South Wales mathematics syllabi for Advanced, Extension 1 and Extension 2 levels. This aims to be a comprehensive guide to the course and heavily encourages contributions to improve its usefulness and keep it current in the face of more syllabus changes.
