    I highly recommend the CGP (C1,C2,S1,M1,D1) revision guide:
    http://www.waterstones.com/waterston...ctice/8168885/

    I also recommend doing all of the exam papers, and visiting examsolutions.net

    Good Luck!

    Get good at it and do C2... then surely your skill level will be better and you'll hopefully realise this is a silly question.
    For example I have learnt C1,2 and have a good skill/knowledge/understanding level so will not really need to revise C1 to get full UMS...
    Remember to do past papers and understand everything.
    Remember to check for silly errors/ mistakes (in the past papers and real thing)
    Some people get caught out in coordinate geometry when the question gives a right angle and asks for a line length or area for example. Remember perpendicular---> pythag or 0.5b*h for these Q's
