I did AQA a few years ago but this should also work hopefully for you too:
These first 2 links are for exam walkthrough practice so you watch them go through exam papers and you can better familiarise yourself with all Q types in chem:

Also can use websites like: Physics maths tutor, MME, Exampro which have question banks to practise too.

Then to learn chem content, obv use your textbook that the teacher provides u with + use these also on Youtube:
(https://chemrevise.org/3-edexcel-revision-guides/) - with this you don't really need to make notes, this has everything you should need content-wise!

Also remember with Chem, they often recycle questions or have similar style/structured Qs over the years, so going through these and identifying your weak areas will really help you get better.
Don't limit yourself to just the resources I provided. This is just what worked for me but I really do hope this helps you. Especially cus youre in Yr12 too, you're really in a good time to improve before Yr13.

I hope you smash ur chem mocks/exams and other A Levels :smile:

All the best
