Hi everyone!

Does anyone know/ have any hard mechanics questions (post a level but using M1/M2 theory) with solutions?
(apart from STEP)

Do you want questions that are specifically limited to M1/M2 syllabus or more general hard questions? Your options are much wider in the second case.

Sorry - just edited the post. Added a more general uni level physics problem book which has a lot of mechanics in it.

As for OK prepped - I have no idea - can you solve the problems in the Povey book? You asked about one of the early ones on the physics forum - the resistor cube.

Schaum's 3000 Solved Problems in Physics will give you more than enough across a fair range, to keep you busy.

Otherwise if you really want to challenge yourself, follow Alow's advice and get a classical mechanics book. Kleppner & Kolenkow is the usual first introduction to it, but might require multivariable calculus. Marion & Thornton I'm told should be avoided. If you find K&K easy, by some stretch of the imagination, then Goldstein is the "next" level of mechanics, or Landau & Lifschitz if you hate yourself/are Russian.

Rather than any of those I recommend:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Introductio...dp/0521876222/

which is much closer to Povey, and is full of problems and worked solutions at A level and well beyond - by far the best book I know for both a treatment of classical mechanics *and* interesting worked problems.

And as for Goldstein and L&L for an A level student? lol, as I believe the young'uns say.

Well it would quickly demonstrate the limitations of their knowledge thus far
