    Do past papers and watch videos on youtube on a certain topic and then do practice questions on them
    i know that there are many stupid questions on the exam that also throws me off but when i read the question i usually think that i can't do it but if you do step by step... e.g. read the whole question first and then read back again but read maybe first 2 line and see if you have to do something, maybe need to find something that you may need in your 2nd step... Just do step by step

    Personally, I would do some questions from the textbook/Solomon worksheets(these are different to Solomon exam papers) on each topic first and watch videos if stuck. Then once I had got the hang of the different topics a bit then move onto Solomon papers. Definitely do papers though as sometimes the questions in the textbook are very different to the exam questions.

    sure... do whatever you can
    this is the subject that requires you to do as much practice as you can...

    In my opinion exam solutions doesnt teach c3 and c4 well, however it's useful for exam questions. Hegarty maths is amazing for C3 and C4 you'll learn so well, that any type of question wont be able to put you off. Goodluck!

    well pastpaper is complete thing... it is on pretty much everything
    but the exercises are on a specific topic
    so i'll say exercises first, do some question on each topic and then do a pastpaper, that way you can be prepared for the paper

    As you got an A in C1 just keep spamming past papers.

    As for C2, I would say do all the questions in the book if you asked this in September. However, it's Feb & you still have to cover C3 & C4. So, do all the exercises in the book but only do the hardest questions in the exercises. Then keep spamming past papers for C2. I've not properly started S1 but it's not every difficult so again hardest questions from each exercise. For C3 & C4 you really should do every question, so you get exposed to a lot of different type questions.
    It's going to be hard work but very possible if you're serious about yourself.
