Hey. Just wondering what you're opinion is on trying to get ahead of the class during the final week of the Easter holidays. So I'll teach myself content so that when we get to the topics in class it's more like revision for me. Or should I spend the week going back over what we've already learnt and just making sure I know it all perfectly?
I spent the first week of the holidays going over everything we've done and I feel reasonably confident on most of it. There's still some more intricate details that I need to go over but overall I feel like I know it all pretty well.
Should I get ahead of class and finish content? Watch

It's a very good idea, take the initiative to teach yourself and you'll do better in the exams in the long run

Pre-reading is actually a lot more useful than is discussed. It means that you can go into lessons already knowing what questions to ask to improve your understanding, and as you rightly pointed out, some parts of the lesson will already be revision.
Lessons also are usually good for applying knowledge, but there's not always time to feel like the knowledge is concrete before you try to apply it, so by pre-reading you will be much closer to being able to apply it and further your understanding of it during lessons
Absolutely. More people should pre-read course material!
