I started C3 this week, but i will be finishing school in 2 weeks. I wanted to know what could i do during the summer to give me a better understanding of C3 without having to study solid, as i do want a break.

Get a textbook (either the Heinemann one, or the Pearson Longman combined C3&C4 one) and work through it slowly, say a chapter every couple of weeks or so.

Study, with breaks in the middle. If you have a textbook, there's plenty of material in there for you to do and practise on. And there's always TSR for help. Do as much or as little as you want, there's no pressure - presumably you'll be going over it next term?

You could learn the whole book in the summer if you wanted, then you'd be well prepared for next year! The big things are identities, so get used to them and practice being able to show LHS=RHS using identities. Once you have done a few they become easy to spot, and are worth good marks in the exam.

How confident are you with the material presented in the AS portion of the course? If there are some areas which you found difficult to understand then it may be worthwhile reviewing those problematic areas before looking at C3.

to be honest C1 and C2 were pretty easy. but yh i think i will jus work through the text book slowly so it doesnt feel so pressurising.

Try and divide it into sections:

Functions
e / log
Numerical methods
Trig
Transforming graphs
Differentiation

That's pretty much it.
