    Yeah they do :confused: I have a copy of FM1 and I've definitely seen a copy of FS1. I hope whoever choose to do FP1/2 realise that those textbooks are out at all yet :lol:

    How did people find that?
    Stats wasn't as nice as sometimes, too much poisson for my liking and question 1e required a stupid number of decimal places to be accurate.
    Mechanics was pretty nice, no impulses or anything What did people get for the last question (x in terms of d)?

    It was evil, did pretty badly :/ I probably missed 3 marks per question at least... I did so much work for it and all for nothing
