Our school always tell us to watch the news/ read a broadsheet, but personally I find the best way to prepare is to look at past exam questions and practise your technique. I like to underline when doing the the comprehension bit. In the multiple choice section, remember to answer every question even if you don't know the answer - you have a one in four chance after all. For the essays, try to have a good structure, be balanced but come to a conclusion and use evidence - most of this can come from the sources themselves, but depending on what other subjects you do, you can bring in outside knowledge as well. It doesn't matter how tenuous the link, you can get away with lot in GS!
But the main thing to remember is don;t worry too much, it's not as important as your other subjects and it seems it's one of those things you either "get" or don't.
