Most papers are very similar each year so probably the best way to revise is by practising past papers and doing as many questions as you can. The solomon papers are slightly harder than the actual past papers, so if you can do those, you'll be set in the exam.

I didn't do AQA but I've seen the papers and the content is pretty similar. I also took notes throughout the year as there are a couple of formulas you have to remember. In M1 especially, they give you no formulas at all whatsoever (for edexcel that is, not too sure about AQA)

This website can explain it better than me: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/mathe...thematics-6360
Usually you can choose whichever one you want to take if your school offers it. M1 is good to have if you're doing physics and some parts of S1 link in with biology

http://www.examsolutions.net/ has really good videos step by step videos on all topics. Beware, the night before a maths exam, it always crashes :laugh:
