For practice with verb conjugation, languagesonline.org.uk is fairly straightforward and thorough. Go to the Grammar section under the French bit.
See if you can spot any patterns as to how different verbs are conjugated for different subjects, and maybe write this down on paper/flashcards/whatever works for you. Parler, choisir and vendre are good models for the rules for conjugating -er, -ir and -re verbs respectively, so see if you can learn the verb endings for present tense and any other tenses you have learnt. And then there are a few key irregulars such as avoir, être, faire, aller, which are also very useful for other tenses and sentence structures. And modal verbs (pouvoir, vouloir, devoir) tend to follow similar patterns to each other.

When you are speaking, quite a few conjugated forms of a verb will sound the same, e.g. (je) parle, (tu) parles, (il/elle/on) parle, (ils/elles) parlent. ("parl"). And then there is (nous) parlons and (vous) parlez which sound different. In speaking you can quite often get away with using 'on' instead of 'nous'.

Go through each topic section and come up with 10-15 phrases/sentences in french with English translation below for each topic like one for au college. Revise these phrases off by heart, sing it something, then write the phrases you learnt in your exam.
