    Which is the easiest? Decision 1 is quite different, anyone studied it? How difficult was it?

    Statistics 2 seems to get quite more challenging as does Mechanics 2...

    Having done S2 and M2 (but not D1) I would say S2 is easier. In my college we finished it in two weeks. Not much of content.

    Decision is the easiest. Mechanics is the hardest but the most enjoyable. Stats is boring and medium difficulty.

    IMO

    D1 is very easy, but some people just dont get it. Its a bit awkward. If your doing a degree in maths then maybe do mechanics, as it isnt really that hard and it looks good on the CV.
    I learnt D1 2 days before the exam and got an A, so yeah just do that if you have a heavy workload!

    We did part of M2 in Physics, and most of the class found it hard.
    I would choose S2 or D2

    If you've done M1 then M2 is easy because it's essentially the same stuff with a few additions, plus after studying it for a year you've got the 'feel' for mechanics.
    D1 is meant to be annoying, easy, but annoying. Especially if you have a flair for real *cough* pure *cough* maths. Thankfully I avoided having to do D1, but I did have the textbook for a few weeks.

    S2 is probably a bit difficult. I did S1 and found parts of it rather challenging. I'm not sure what the S2 course is like but I think it could be like M2 in the sense that after studying stats for a year you get the 'feel' for it.

    I didnt like desicion 1 decision 2 is a bit better tho, because there are not many follow on marks and its very easy to slip up on a big questions. it is fun but it can get tedeous.

    S2 is better then s1 i found its more fun i found as theres not as much to remember.

    Im not doing M2 until june but i found M1 very hard!.
