    Just get hold of every single past paper you can find off of the edexcel website (google it). Do them, later on in timed conditions too, as the time is quite short. Mark them all too.

    Questions are basically exactly the same. So you'll know what to expect.

    Also if you haven't already, I'd recomend getting a revision guide, I had a CGP one. It lists all the topics you need to learn for each exam, and shows you the techniques for each.

    Like there is actually a couple of formulas you need to know for unit 2 I remember (multiple choice + calculator) about density/mass/volume and the nth term, you just need to learn.

    PM/quote me if you have any more questions goodluck.

    I use the Lonsdale (Now Lett's and Lonsdale) ones. Because I'm doing individual sciences we now have one for each. They're sectioned off into each module (B1, C1, P1 etc.) and I find them quite useful. However teachers frequently tell us how they're not good enough to give you an A* and lack quite a lot of the higher material.

    I beg to differ as when I was retaking B1b the revision guide was my only resource (when originally taking the exam I relied entirely on the teacher and as a result got a C) and I managed to get 40/40, so I guess it's what helps you learn best.

    [You may be able to take home the 360 Science textbooks if you ask, however it's not exactly light reading.]

    Some of it is. Remember to ignore all pages about 'ethical issues'. There tends to be five or six in each book. Physics takes the least work IMO.

    Lonsdale revision guides are very good, they're all I used for revision and I did quite well, they're clear and imo, much nicer to revise from because there are diagrams and pictures explaining everything....Do loads of practice papers and I found it quite helful to sit with my friends and test each other on the multiple choice questions at the end of each topic...

    We concentrated a lot on ethical issues went it came to B2 for our structured exam.

    By combining the use of past papers and the Lonsdale revision book will help.

    Remember, you don't have to have all the answers correct to get 40/40.
