    I'm also doing this exam on Monday. I find it really annoyingly difficult to get hold of D1 revision material on the net and the MEI textbook is just pants. The best I can currently find is this. I don't find the algorithms to bad, for me the hardest parts are either Critical path analysis or Linear programming.

    i dont get the selction with interchange sort algorithm?
    Interchange Algorithm is as follows:

    (The original data is unordered)

    1) The smallest number in the list is found and interchanged with the first number in the list.

    2)The smallest number excluding the first one (which has already been sorted) is found and interchanged with the second number.

    3) This is repeated until the list is sorted.

    Hope that helps!

    Quick question: I noticed the textbook contains searching algorithms, however I don't remember being taught this. Was this due to an omission by a teacher, or is it no longer in the specification?

    Cheers.

    There's not as much consistency as with say, pure or stats but more or less I'd say they were along the same sorts of lines each year.

    Binary and linear search.
    We got taught those in passing, but I've never seen them come up in any past papers. Although I don't know if they're in the syllabus or not, they're quite straightforward so it might be worth learning them just in case.

    Not sure about the chapters but the following topics you need to know:

    Simulation
    Linear Programming
    Algorithms (Bin Packing, Interchange Sort, Bubble Sort, Insertion Sort, Quick Sort, Shuttle Sort)
    Graph Theory
    Networks (Minimum connector problem ie Kruskal's and Prim's algorithms)
    Dijkstra's algorithm for the shortest route
    Critical path analysis

    It wouldn't be too bad if it wasn't for that LP formulation thingy on the last page. That really is quite awful.
