Just read through the booklet and check up stuff you don't know - the most useful thing you can do is know where everything is in the booklet so you can complete the exam within the time limit. Previous pre-release papers have shown to be quite seperate from the questions asked, so I wouldn't panic about it too much. Bear in mind 1/3 of the paper has nothing to do with the booklet.

Just read through it a few times, underline areas where questions are most likely to arise, etc. The man that writes the papers (John Miller I think) is apparently quite skilled at finding questions from the most unlikely part of text, so be on guard for ANYTHING that could potentially yield a question. Remember you can write as many notes on your copy of the article as fresh copies are given out at the exam. Of course it's a synoptic paper anyway, so you'll need to revise the whole syllabus from the 2 years (Hurray, back to Young's Double Slit and Diffraction Gratings! )

Hmm, since we all have a copy of it, perhaps we could brainstorm some ideas of things that might come up from it here on the forums? Surely there would be nothing wrong with that?
