    Hey,

    What am I better off doing for physics, pastpapers or progressive problems from the books which should cover all the course, I'd want to do both but with the other subjects I highly doubt I will get them all completed.

    Same for chemistry? I genuinely have no idea what's the better option whereas for maths I know to do pastpapers as they will be the better option.


    Any replies much appreciated

    Past paper questions got me through it fine. whilst studying for it i used the questions on this website http://www.elginacademy.co.uk/?page_id=1093 under the 'Higher Past papers (Units 1, 2 and 3)' heading.
    They took questions from exam paper from 1991 onwards and broke them up into units e.g. diffraction , capacitors, photoelectric and all that jazz which made it alot easier to study exam style questions on the areas you arent so good at...

    Yeah, my experience with textbook questions were that they were tediously useless. I don't need 600 questions on how to do a free-body diagram, thanks. The standard of textbook questions don't tend to reach exam level until the "later" examples, so unless you really have no clue what you're doing with the subject, then you can skip most textbook questions.

    However, there was one textbook that had "Ink exercises" at the end of every chapter that were at a good level, but I'm afraid I don't remember the name of it. :teehee:

    Above link is good. I do recommend.
