    Aitch, ideally I need 90+ on D1 as it may go in my f.maths.
    I haven't done too many of the d1 textbook questions just examples, a few out of each exercise and all of review exercise 1, etc
    If I do all the questions in revise for D1 textbook and all past papers under exam conditions (and there are loads cos of nov exams) would I be able to get that?
    If I were you, I'd concentrate on doing (and redoing if necessary) past papers, in exam conditions. I made neat copies of the questions I got wrong, then redid them after a couple of weeks. It was a bit tiresome for topics like linear programming, but I think it worked.

    Good Luck!

    Ive put myself in for D1 too, only one i my college doing it. I guess I should start learning for it.. im good at picking stuff up/remembering maths. Anyone got any tips on self studying D1 in one month? Advisable to do every question?
    You can skimp on the easy topics, once you've grasped both the logic and the required method. For the later and harder topics, do all the exercises, especially the review questions.

    I am in your boat. I've only done up to Review exercise 1. Its just remembering a load of processes and putting names to faces, as it were.

    If you can do a week's work on it and get 80+ UMS, I shall congratulate you!

    I have to say that working like that is not my style. I did every question of every exercise in the book at least once, and an awful lot of past papers. When it came to the actual exam., it was as if I'd seen it before...
    And what did you get in the actual exam?

    My teacher makes me do every question in the book too; I guess that is good in some ways, but in the same way it makes the modules take an awful lot longer :p: ! I remember at GCSE our teacher would just say "Ok, do exercise 7C odds, 7D multiples of 3." - Not all the questions...

    There is a companion revision book to the Heinemann text too. This takes the effort out of organising your revision.

    You really just need to do loads of examples.

    Wow, very nice, congratulations :cool: !

    It says on my chart that 24.7% of people got an A in D1 in June 2005, that's the lowest out of any module except for P3, in which 20.7% got an A. Some food for thought ...
