    Go to physics and maths tutor and do a crap tonne of past papers! Do every paper you can find, there should be around 20ish for each module if I remember correctly. ExamSolutions does video walkthroughs on all the questions if you get stuck

    Past papers are the best way to get used to what the exam will be like and practise your knowledge. I find it really useful to write out a 'perfect' set of notes for each topic though (from the textbook but in my own words) so I have something to refer back too!

    My Maths teacher was like you should do Past Papers by topic so you gather past paper questions on each chapter then first do questions in the textbook (with watching videos for help) then move onto past paper questions.

    We are all different so obviously what works for one may not be the best for someone else. Based on my experience my suggestion would be.......

    Learn it, by participating in lessons, using your text book, talking with course mates, using online resources such as www.examsolutions.net to clarify any misunderstandings. Always sort out things you are struggling with, never tell yourself you'll sort it out later.
    Do lots of practice from your text book to consolidate knowledge and skills especially end of chapter and other review exercises. Do more work than your teacher has set if you feel like you are struggling with a topic. Read ahead in text book so you come to lessons with an understanding of what you are going to cover and are ready to ask and answer questions.
    At the end of a topic, do topic based exam questions so that you see how examiners test what you have learned.
    For revision, do loads of past papers to improve your exam technique and reveal any weaknesses. Use the same resources you used to learn it it to fill in any gaps before moving on to the next past paper.
    If you are consistently achieving very high marks from past papers and you have done all of the recent ones, seek out other resources such madasmaths.com or Solomon papers to try some unusual or harder questions.
