Im just about to start my C1 revision and the exam is on 19th may.
I was looking through the exercise book and Im not sure what to do. I know I dont have much time left and I know maths is alllllll about practising.
Shall I read over the examples and do all the exercises and all the questions? or shall I just go through the examples and just do the mixed exercises, so I dont waste time and can move onto past papers straight after?
What do you think I should do? I dont have much time left and dont want to waste my time doing exercise questions when I have soooo many past papers to do and I understand that past papers are more important?
Thanks in advance!

Maths is about understanding how and when to apply formulae. The best way to learn it is to practice but when you practice make sure you understand why you do all the steps you do. So yes practice is definitely a good thing, but I'd save at least most of the past papers until nearer the time - repeating them won't be half as useful as doing them the first time round, so better to do them later when you'll still remember what you learn from them when it comes to your exam.
But that is like 4 months away.. shouldn't you concentrate on keeping up with everything you're currently being taught rather than throwing yourself into past papers etc which you will then have long since forgotten by the time your exam comes round?

One thing I would recommend is that you try to study ahead provided that you know your previous modules perfectly. Its always tough first time round, but the phrase practice makes perfect is a ciche for a reason. So whatever questions ur duing, the key is knowing and applying stuffs u learn. Good luck

Don't bother doing all the exercise questions, practise papers are the best things around. The questions in the book and the ones in the exam are a different ball game.
