    Hello Timmy,

    Some people may disagree, but I always revise from past papers. It gives a broad overview of the course and you are applying your skills to problems in a realistic and practical manner.

    That said, do not solely concentrate on past papers. If you don't understand something - revise that entire section. Towards the exam you may want to write formula sheets which recap the entire syllabus and look over questions you had substantial difficulty with and practice them again.

    This works for me, but you may be different. Always be willing to try different pieces of advice until you find what works for you.

    All the best.
