    I'm currently preparing my son for IGCSE maths; this is the method I'm using:

    (i) Do a pair (i.e. paper I and paper II) of past papers.
    (ii) Mark and identify mistakes and weak spots; identify strengths.
    (iii) Review the theory behind where mistakes were made.
    (iv) Repeat.

    Then after a few cycles through this,

    (a) Identify consistent weak spots by reviewing papers done so far.
    (b) Identify consistent strengths.

    Then

    (i) Thoroughly review the theory behind the weak spots and practice only past paper questions on these areas.
    (ii) Work at speeding up answering questions where strengths have been identified. This gives more time for the harder stuff.

    Good luck!
