Studying Physics and Mathematics

With the trial examination period for 2017 quickly approaching it is important to talk about the best way to study Physics and Mathematics. The answer is to do questions. Questions may be from past exam papers or summary books. At this stage in schools new work should have been completed with a path of revision left towards the HSC. Write detailed answers to your questions. In Physics use the words clearly and make sure you answer the question that is asked. In Mathematics do not jump too many steps at once in your working as this is a very common source of error. Most importantly do not attempt at this stage to summarise or write out the text-book. This just takes up time and does not engage your brain to promote thinking and understanding.
