    I've heard a lot of people saying it's very easy, although mostly teachers, so may anyone that has done/doing D1 give some insight? I need to choose between S3 or D1 to make up 15 modules for maths, not a big fan of stats though.
    Also how long should it take to learn? (would be learning it outside of school)

    It's fun man ;D
    take D1
    It takes a bit of work to get the hang of it but when you do you'll be like omg this is just easy!
    It will take you around about 2 weeks intense work not much is it?
    And past papers within that time also to get A's
    Good luck mate!

    I'm doing D1 at the moment and it seems pretty easy compared to the core topics. It is very tedious though and one small mistake early on in a question can cause the whole thing to go wrong.

    Well 2 weeks is quite a while ;P, considering I need to self teach a few modules, which can only be done with c4, fp2 etc, so it might take a while to get round to it.

    Sounds similar to mechanics then, m1/2 can have 17 mark questions (in parts) but if you make a small mistake its easy to just get 0 marks for a question.

    Do any other maths modules help before doing D1? Or is it a completely different set of skills to learn (we have learnt C1-3, M1-2, S1 and FP1 so far, if any of those could help)

    It's easy - a couple of weeks to learn it and then some time to consolidate the knowledge. It's tedious and the questions are time consuming though.
