I know this question has been asked a lot but i wanted an updated perceptive on this. So i have done AS Maths(C12 S1) and AS FM( F1 M1 M2) and got high A in both. For A2 im taking c34, f2 f3 m3 and either s1 or d1. The course im taking in uni is a combined degree of Computer Science and Physics.
I liked S1 and dont know how D1 is. If i do D1 id have to self study but ive been reading it easy and fast to learn. So i was thinking i can use the extra time for Chem Phy and FP which is way harder for me than Maths. So what do you guys think?

Well we started the first chapter of s2 in school and it seems ok. Ive seen the D1 book online and it seems tedious and silly and also long.
Ive read other threads where people claim s2 is easy and that it's really easy to lose marks in d1 if u mess something up.
yeah d1 is tedious and sometimes a little bit convoluted, but the only thing that stops you from getting an a star in D1 is forgetting the algorithms and the definitions, i like it because it gives you a break from the other maths as it has literally nothing to do with normal maths and is a completely new sector. on some of the algorithms there are alot of things oging on, on especially things like the planarity algorithm and route inspection with more than 4 nodes. none of it is ever hard though, its just a bit tedious. but the main reason i did d1 is because i hate stats and mechanics, so we are doing D1 and FP1, fp1 is great, but fp2 is like second year uni stuff and is ridiculously hard so we did d1 instead. and dont be fooled that d1 is long, some diagrams take up the entire page and we are already halfway through the book in about a month
