    Just speaking from experience, we had to do graphs for every practical and for homework/exam prep.

    I would say go to a website i think biology humerus even tho you are doing a new spec some content is the same and hes basically broke down each specific topic e,g liver and found all past papers from like 2002 and put them for that one topic so when you come from school you can complete them for each section good way of testing and memorizing.

    but you dont really need specific stationary its not like maths pen some paper and a calc will do fine most lessons poster paper coloured pens will come later when you do revision properly but for pre december i wouldnt focus too much on revising harcore
