    Do lots of past papers and textbook question to practice. The same applies to mechanics in A-level maths.

    hello and welcome to TSR.

    Short answer, there are no easy methods except work hard and do lots of exam questions.

    Get hold of all the past exam papers you can together with their mark schemes.

    Go through them all, several times if you have to. This will greatly improve your familiarity with the types of questions asked, your confidence at answering them, your speed and finally it's the best way of committing facts and equations to memory.

    Look through the study help boards and use the search box with keywords (top right hand corner). There are plenty of resources on TSR to help and if you get stuck, post your questions in this sub-forum and you will get a quick response from other members.

    Don't forget to post your full question (actual scan) together with diagrams and show the how far you have got with your working so far. Then give a brief explanation to say why you are having difficulty.

    Good luck,

    I'm also wondering about this for OCR, just past paper questions? Any resources for learning and revising the material for better understanding? Is the main ocr text book for AS Physics any good?

    Yes, the Heinemann one is pretty good, so do the questions in that first, then when you run out of questions do past papers.

    You do m1 and m2 at the same time, the physics mechanics seems much easier when you do
