As many as you think necessary. If you struggle at physics, I'd probably invest more. Do a lot of past papers, learn the types of questions that could come up and understand how to answer them, every paper can only ask a finite amount of questions, you'll find they are just repeated along the years with different content and the same principle. What board do you do, I'm assuming its A-Level. The AQA formula sheet, which I used back in the day was pretty good.

Aim for at least an hour of independent study for each hour of lessons, more if you are struggling with physics. As it happens, I wrote a blog post a few days ago about tips for success in A Level Physics (http://cowenphysics.com/tips-for-suc...level-physics/).

Make sure you revise definitions according to your exam board (Mechanics ones for OCR are here: http://cowenphysics.com/a-level/ocr-...s-definitions/), as a lot of questions these days are wordy rather than numerical.

Before attempting past papers, build up your confidence and understanding with simpler textbook questions.
