    How far away are the mocks? If they're next week, I'd probably go straight to the questions after reading through your class notes first. If they're not for a few weeks/months, go for the revision notes first. It also depends on how you revise best. If questions work really well for you, then tackle those but if you revise best with mind maps or whatever, definitely do those first. It's all about finding strategies and time scales which suit your learning style.

    I guess I'll try going straight to questions first, so should I start off by working my way through my CGP revision guide/workbook, then solving the specimen paper?

    Yeah start with the textbook. Since you're on the new exam I presume, it might be best to leave the specimen paper as late as possible. If you run out of questions, you could always ask your teachers for some/make some up

    Nah, I'm gonna use the specimen paper ASAP, or at least paper 1 since, to be fair, that may actually be my mock exam this November.
