For the Sallust, get yourself a Classical Workbook. Running vocabulary, some good commentary notes at the side, and a verbatim translation at the end of the whole thing.

In terms of language, I assume you've got a copy of John Taylor's Latin Beyond GCSE? If not, get one - good verse vocab list at the back and plenty of practice exercises you can do. Don't know if you're doing prose comp or the Livy so can't really make a recommendation for a prose comp book unless it's useful to you.

Do you need anything for the verse set text? Virgil or Propertius? (assuming you're sitting it in 2015, which you must be otherwise you wouldn't be doing Sallust...)

I'm doing the Livy, so I don't know about a good commentary for Sallust.
But a quick google search revealed these videos, which you might have already seen. Also this would be very useful.
Alternatively, you may wish to consider getting a tutor.

I'm not, I'm doing Sallust and Virgil plus Ovid. I love V but find Sallust hard going. Anything though is better than the 'unseen' Livy, boring wars ; slaughter , list of battles and numbers...yawn..No idea what will come up, there's just too much of it.....
it's in the lap of the gods, well examiners....
All be over soon then I can have a ritual dumping of paper in the green bin..
