Maths is a subject where practice practice practice is the best revision.
By practicing questions from online worksheets or doing past papers, hopefully you would recognise what the question is asking you to do and apply the equations you have learnt to the specific question.
What you could do for equations is maybe write them on flashcards and put sticky notes around the house.
The more you use the flashcards with the equation on the back and the more you see the sticky notes dotted around the house, you would remember them for the questions that you do and can apply the mathematical knowledge that you have learnt.
I hope this helped

The CGP practice workbooks can be really helpful because they give fully laid out solutions to all the questions. Start with the 1-9 book first and then go on to the 8-9 book.
Set aside an hour or two at the weekend to do some questions - it's hard when you're already busy with other things but honestly it's so worth it.
In terms of equations, they'll stick in your head the more you use them in practice questions. Also make sure to check which ones you actually have to know off by heart because some exam boards give you some equations on the front of the paper!
Personally, I found that spending my maths revision doing practice questions rather than making loads of notes helped me get a 9 in my mock (can't take the real exam because of covid) even though I found flashcards/mindmaps/notes really helpful in other subjects.
Best of luck for your revision! 😊

I had to buy mine as I couldn't find an online version of the workbooks. I think there are online versions of the revision guides/textbook though.
