    Hello there,

    Is this the mechanics unit for the mathematics or physics qualification? There are generally some subtle differences in their approaches. I hope TSR can help.

    Hello again,

    It's hard to give any general 'all-round' advice for this sort of thing. Are there any particular types of questions you struggle with (i.e. interpretation, calculation etc.)? For general advice, all I would say is to try and look for links between each of the sub-topics in mechanics. Once you begin to spot connections, everything does in fact start to become a lot clearer. Also, try and become fluent in the definitions and equations. Once you gain fluency, everything tends to feel natural. I'm sorry if this is not the advice you are looking for; if you are looking for something else, please do not hesitate to ask.

    PS: Have you considered hiring a personal tutor of sorts? It may help to get some one-to-one assistance of some sort.
