Hey,

What would you say is the best way to study maths,

I've got a decent plan of action for english, bio, chem and physics but maths has always been my weak area. I know my things but can't apply my knowledge to be honest.

In class we go quite fast and sometimes hard to keep up. I was going to do examples for every topic etc from this hodder and gibson book but I doubt ill be able to fit everything in, what should I do ?

Yeah, what nerd434 said OP. Understand the idea/theorem/concept, and then questions questions questions.

It's fairly laborious but I tend just to work my way through all of the exercises in the Heinemann textbook. They guide you from the very basics to exam-style questions and once you've finished a certain topic, say Differentiation, you can pretty much answer any question that will come up in an exam paper.

I took this approach leading up to my prelim and managed to come away with 94%, so it's worth considering!

I was genuinely considering doing that but I dont know whether I am able to fit it all in? I mean that would mean like a good few exercises a day along with homework and other subjects.
