    I did D1 last year, and it was by far my worst module out of all maths and further maths. I found it easy, wasn't cocky, but there are just so many simple mistakes you can make. I got 78/100 UMS (lost 1 mark). I bought a copy of my paper and showed it to my teacher, and he said there was one marking mistake which would have brought me up to 80 but it was too late to get it remarked >.> . I also lost a mark for drawing slightly over a line in linear equalities or something (I think it's the last chapter). Either way, make sure you check your working thoroughly. Especially for things like Daikstra's algorithm (or however it's spelled). Make one mistake early on and everything will be wrong, the questions are usually worth around 14 marks, and that's without a UMS conversion! Make sure you cover everything in the book - the concepts are easy to grasp usually; compared to other maths modules. Then just make sure you apply your knowledge by doing every past paper! However, don't do them all in one go, do them routinely up till your exam, and leave the last 2 or so days before your paper to revise the content again, and the definitions like walk, path, tree etc - as they always come up.

    Oh, and the bubble sorting and other sorting methods. They may be easy, but make sure you go over them a lot, and don't get complacent xD - I was the only one in our further maths class to get the bubble sorting question correct, and the question was as simple as this (but not exact):

    Sort the numbers below in to reverse order:
    1, 5, 6, 4, 10

    I hated it, so easy to make a silly mistake that makes you lose so many marks. First time i did it i got a C, then the second time i only just scraped an A (80 ums)
