    Is this as effective/realistic as possible or not?

    My plan is to:

    1 Do all MyMaths tasks for M1 and D1 to 100% within 16 days; a chapter a day
    (Deadline being 16th December)
    2 Do every question in Edexcel's FP1 book with 6 days to complete
    (Deadline being 25th December)
    3 Do at least 1 past paper for:
    M1 on Mondays
    D1 on Tuesdays
    FP1 on Wednesday
    -but resit each paper a week then 2 weeks later for spaced repetition.

    Also, if you have any tips for Further maths in general I would highly appreciate it.

    I did S1 in a day and a half and have taken 3 days for S2 hoping to finish of in the next 2 or 3 days.

    with hard work a week for M1 is definitely realistic but I do emphasize with hard work.

    D1 and FP1 I have heard from others is easy, but have not verified that for myself yet.

    your targets are ambitious but for many able students realistic, Just you would need to work very hard to achieve.

    Do some of the IAL papers as well, but remember for FP1, the questions with the \alpha and \beta roots stuff is not on the GCE syllabus, so you can skip that. There are some stuff that has come up in the D1 IAL papers which hasn't come up in the GCE ones, but it did come up on the 2016 paper, so it's useful. There are some things in FP1 that have never been tested, make sure you know them, so you're not surprised in the exam.

    Use Madasmaths.com as well, it was very helpful, especially for proof by induction.

    Thanks for the encouragement and motivation

    How is S2 in terms of difficulty and content?

    S2 I would say is between C2 and C3 in terms of difficulty. really is not much harder then C2. However you should probably have C2 completed before you start it, otherwise you might get confused in places.
