    specimen papers online are good practice for the new exams.

    Buy a revision guide and workbook that matches the examiner and tier (higher/foundation) you are entered for. Your school may recommend one or even sell them on at discounted prices, ask your maths teacher. Your school may also supply Mathswatch CDs that are a terrific revision resource. Other online sources of help are currently updating their sites to reflect the new curriculum so keep asking on TSR about good revision resources that people find.

    Use the specimen and practice papers produced by the examiners to find your strengths and weaknesses, the revision guide to revise weak topics and the practice workbook to consolidate improvement.

    I had a look at the specimen papers for the new 9-1 specification on mathsgenie. Oh boy, they do look harder than the old spec papers, some of the questions I've never even learnt before (new curriculum). Practice questions on topics that you cannot get your head around it, you'll eventually get used to it. Revise on everything that you've been taught so when the questions come up, you won't panic because you've revised that part.
