1. Early in the year use the revision exercises at the end of each chapter in your book.

  2. Revise a chapter (or two) each week, starting with the chapters you did the previous year.

  3. After Christmas do past exam questions. 

  4. StudyClix is a great website where you can choose exam questions by topic which allows you to study each topic while remaining exam focused.

  5. As you come towards the mocks and then the junior Cert itself then I would focus on past papers without sticking to one topic. 

  6. Remember: when studying maths the best option is to put pen to paper and do questions. Videos, like those on this website should be used as an aid when you are stuck. Videos used by themselves have very little value.

  1. Make your own notes - start by reading through a chapter, as you do this highlight the parts that you think are most important (don't go overboard!)

  2. When finished this then write these notes into a study copy, be neat so it is easy to read back over them later.

  3. If you prefer you can make a spider diagram or mind map using the parts highlighted earlier.

  4. Learn your experiments - there are no mandatory experiments on the new course however you can and will be asked about experiments.

  5. Videos, like those on this website, are a great way to revise your experiments. Watch them a few times and take notes as you do so. 

  6. Past exam papers should be used as you come towards the mocks and Junior Cert. StudyClix is a great website where you can choose exam questions by topic which allows you to study each topic while remaining exam focused.
