    if you're referring to the AS trig, then just make sure you remember the trig identities, a lot of skill can be obtained through doing practise questions so i guess you're right about that

    Its usually(pretty much always) just a case of manipulating identities, it may take a bit of practice to recognise which one you should choose though
