    I can't even remember making that post. People give tips and help.

    If it wasn't for this Forum my D1 would be looking bad, but I've been here getting tips for like 2 weeks now.

    There are teachers who recommend videos to watch, and give you advice based on past students.

    Exam Technique is crucial.
    ohh ok, how is D1 now? I'm finding it alright, will do my first paper in an hour. I've been using this: http://www.examsolutions.net/maths-r.../D1/module.php

    My personal opinion (from easiest to hardest):
    7) Matchings
    1) Algorithms
    3) Algorithms on Networks
    2) Graphs and Networks
    4) Route Inspection
    5) Critical Path Analysis
    6) Linear Programming
    That's pretty spot on Khaleesi, personally I'd say CPA is slightly harder than Linear programming because of the stupid dummies and confusing forward/backward passes

    What I do, is that , I see which alternative path gives the lowest value, so I chose the second lowest value and go from there, its really trial and error, you have to play around with your calculator with the routes to see which value gives you the lowest
    Okay I guess you just use your own initiative since it's also only 2 marks !

    Thanks

    Its fine. Out of all the Papers I have 5A*s, and I'm now just re-doing non-A*s.

    Going over my Exam Technique and anything which I may not understand.

    okay for the activities to be happening at day 20 is the answer D, I , J , L ?
    Hi yes but they have H as well I think it might just be looking at the network and figuring it out but that seems reallly dangerous

    I'm kinda' with you on that, they're both right at the bottom, definitely! I just hate finding the optimal solution etc on Linear Programming! I really hope I get an A in this exam!

    P.S I'm glad someone understands my username

    Yes H is also, you have to use your mind and draw it, you have like visualise it in your mind, quite a tough cookie question

    for part f) is this the answer

    At day 20 , there are 5 activities that take place and therefore 5 workers are needed and the lower bound shows that 4 workers are needed?

    Yep but without the lower bound bit

    Don't get cocky. Read, and Re-READ the Question. If you have to actually physically go over the question with your Pen.

    If it's something like Critical Path Analysis, or Route Inspection, look at the next parts to get an idea of where the question is going and the type of mindset you need to be in.

    If you can do that the rest is pretty much clock work. Make your own handing writing eligible, and do whatever it takes to get the marks.

    I.e. for Linear Programming I often Draw my Graphs incorrectly, so now I do stuff like this
    x , y
    (10, 5)

    Just to make it clear to myself. Dumb stuff, but it when I got the A*s in the Mock Papers I did that's what I did.

    Glad you asked that actually because I actually had to think about how to get questions right, rather than focusing on mistakes.

    You look at how much of a float it has and then just see in your mind (if without a Gantt chart) if the event can happen on each before or after day 20 without delaying the project
    If it delays it then its a must?
    If it doesn't then it's a may? I think I don't want to screw up your knowledge
