    This September, I'm going to be taking maths and further maths (as well as physics) and I am looking to improve my general understanding and ability at maths. Has anyone got any ideas on the best way to do this? This is mostly so that I understand the content better in the course and also so I get a better overall understanding of maths as I enjoy it massively. I have bought some moleskine squared notebooks so I can do maths on the go when I have a spare minute, but I don't know where to find the maths to do, so if anyone has any suggestions for places I can get questions that would be great. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Just do maths. Look at the SMC, British Olympiad Round 1, Oxford MAT, brilliant.org, make up problems yourself, browse through math.stackexchange, etc... there's far more maths out there than you could ever dream to do. Just do what picks your fancy.

    I don't know what level you are at but 'Maths Watch' was good for GCSE's and 'Exam Solutions' it's probably the best thing ever for A levels omg!!

    Do lots and lots of practice questions, struggle for a while before looking at any hints, and pester your teacher relentlessly. These are characteristics that will put you ahead of others.

    Might sound a stupid question but how do I make up my own questions? And how do I know what difficulty to start on and to push myself with? Do I have to learn specific methods for questions or just try and do it alone first?

    The for dummies books have really good math books, for all different levels. I found them quite helpful during a undergraduate module that required me to pass a math test.

    You have to be looking at reading about maths in general a lot of the time. And you have to enjoy it, if it's a chore then you probably won't really improve.
