well, depends what you find most tricky
CH1: Lots of content, but pretty easy to get the hang of
CH2: Short chapter, very easy.
CH3: Generally easy once you've practiced, however some of the exam questions are horrendous.
CH4: Lots of content, but simple once you've learnt it
CH5: Looks hard, but is actually quite simple.
CH6: A case of committing several methods to memory.

I would say the matrices chapter
Mainly because I think it fits too much in without expecting you to learn why it works

I personally found matrices really easy. Once I'd learnt how they worked, it was just like algebra.
Chapter 3 can be tough for people who have relied on learning methods the whole time, and don't have a proper understanding of maths.
Overall, I think FP1 is more about understanding what you're doing and why, rather than following set methods. Often there are exam questions which just double check that you understand the principles behind what you've learnt, which some people don't.
Just my two pennies worth.
