I have my DSC1 booked with BASC in Tunbridge at the end of February and was after some advice or pointers from people who have done theirs (not necessarily at this location). I've read all the paperwork and been revising the course data so I'm fairly confident of what to expect over the four days but I thought I would ask if there was anything others found out on their DSC1 that they weren't expecting. Were there things that you hadn't prepared for that came up, kit you didn't realise you needed, stuff you expected but then didn't happen etc? The course booklet is pretty comprehensive so I'm after any of the surprises people encountered that they felt maybe weren't covered, both good and bad.
I thought this would be helpful for me and any others who have theirs booked. I plan to update the thread with anything I find out in Feb after doing mine.
