Everything apparently is the best way to go in prepared. I'm trying to figure out the best way to revise for maths, but have no clue?

the best way to revise is to do past paper questions and do questions from exercice books. that will give you a good way to go about it because that's what i did and i got an A* for my first module.

hope it helps u.:)

Yes, i definitely agree, doin past papers n questions from exercise books is the best way to revise for maths, then if u c a topic that u r having trouble with, u can ask your teacher to go over it with u so u understand it n find out were your goin wrong :D **

i think that too because then you have a practice on what's likely to come in the exam!

It does get stressful and you do panic and feel like you want to give up when the exam times come around, and i'm experiencing the same feelings too, i get stressed out and stuff. but in order to reduce the anxiety levels, you should have a revision time table so you know when and for how long you are to revise a topic for.....there's no point in sitting there all day and revising the same topic for several hours cos you'll find that only some of the info goes into your brain, because you eventually feel bored or your brain just switches off.....and therefore you must include breaks as well.

sometimes, if you have an exam the following day that you struggle with then maybe you can have that day before and do a couple hours of that topic's revision but make sure you split the topic up into sections and give yourself 10 to 20 minute breaks in between in order to process the information and to refresh yourself so more information can be processed.

i also find that there are different ways in which people learn best and different topics may include different methods of revising in which you find most useful so make sure you know the strongest revision technique for yourself and revise this way. Mind-mapping is a good way to put all the information that you know about a topic on a piece of paper and then go back to your books and check what you may have missed out or what you did not know. doing past-papers and exercises is the best way to revise maths.

having a good night's sleep and eating healthy meals at the right times can also have a psychological effect as if you stress out and miss out meals, your brain will not have the energy to work, same goes for lack of sleep.

i hope this has helped those who find it stressful and get very nervous towards exams - it's a natural thing that occurs, but depending on how you deal with it, one can be over stressful or another can be in control of their anxiety levels. :D ***

www.samlearning.com is a great revision website, but schools need to sign up to give the students access. It is definetely worth asking about! :)

sam learnign is awesome :)

If your school subscribes to www.mymaths.co.uk that's a really good way to revise! I would still reccomend doing past paper questions but the online lessons are really usefull if you want to learn a topic but you can't get hold of your teacher.
