M366 The night before the exam + some mind maps to help with revision

Well... the final night of M366, its been a real joy to study but revising truly has been difficult. It's one of those subjects where you are trying to remember so much you seem to forget what you learned the day before! I have been revising for quite a while and it has been going well but spending the last two days working through past papers has had me caught out on more occasions than I want to admit. I know the concepts its just making sure you pin point the buzzwords, which has lead to a lot of interesting acronyms being thought up last minute.

One thing I did do was create mind maps using a piece of software called FreeMind, this really helped me link the materials together so I am sharing them for people who study the course in the future with the hope that they will benefit from them. I have covered blocks 1,2,3,4 up to unit 3 and block 6.

I ignored block 5 in an aim to reduce the amount of information I had to remember, the way the exam works you have three sections the first two made up of 3 questions each (compulsory to do one from each section) and the final section of one question which is mandatory (covering block 6). You have to answer 4 questions in total and block 5 appears as one question out of the 6 you choose from, so I decided to ditch it and stick to block 4 which appears twice in the exam.

The files can be downloaded here

They will open with FreeMind, I hope you find them useful.

Ok time to get some sleep and get this exam out of the way, I hope it goes better than I expect!
