    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone could offer any insight on this.

    I do not feel that confident on some of the theory for my upcoming maths exams, but I was wondering if the best revision technique over the holidays would just be to do lots and lots of exam practice.

    If I cannot do a question, then go back to theory and further reading etc...

    What are your maths revision strategies?

    Do questions until your pen/pencil runs out. Then get a new one and repeat.

    Theory first then past papers. How is it efficient to answer questions on a theory you don't understand? Unless the doing of questions is how you best force yourself to learn the theory of course.

    true. my plan is to go through every exam question ever for the modules (only like 5 years worth..) and when i do not understand a question i go to book, lecture notes, other online solutions until i can answer it

    keep doing this until i am comfortable with the material

    also, i have an idea for each module, get all the exam papers, sort questions by categories and work through category by category so in the real exam I can recollect back to these categories, i.e. "solve an equation of this type..."

    I have 2 months though and i am very un-confident with material right now

    I don't think you learn as effectively. If anything, tackle the exam questions with access to the notes if you really want. I don't think you'd learn by using up all of the papers (and at uni, using up past papers can be annoying).
