    i don't know which tactic to employ. i'm forced to take D1 in my college since i'm doing further maths (ghey) and it's boring as **** as it stands.

    should i:

    (a) rush through the syllabus then rip through past papers (worked for all my other modules)

    (b) note down brief definitions of each type of network or w/e, e.g. definition of tree, bipartite graph etc (there's a lot of names to take in) and work through it slowly.

    Learning the definitions is the most important thing, since if you forget these then you're screwed if those words are used in a question. So the best thing is to learn all the definitions first, then do questions on them, then past papers. If you start to run out of time, move on to past papers quicker.

    Yes, you have to know the definitions. There's always atleast one graph theory question a year.

    There's nothing else you can really do with D1 but learn the definitions...
