I'd say revise your notes and do the Leckie and Leckie papers. Don't bother doing any other papers.

I'd agree. We had to do 1993 -2003 papers over the Easter holidays but our teacher made us work. Oh boy did he make us work but he also get results. Says I won't get an A but I'll show him tongue.gif.

He also says after the exam he go over the papers,considering he'll have them done 2 mins after he has the paperin his hands (okay, slight exageration). Most people think hes the most scary person in the school but I think it depends if he like you or not, or if you work or not. Better go and find the summary folder then....

I'm hoping to get some complete solutions to (maths 1,2 and 3) up on Wednesday. Should have permission from the SQA by then. wink.gif

Apologies to those who are doing Stats.

Yes the best way to study for Maths is to do as many past papers as possible and as many practice questions. However, sometimes you do not exactly understand what a question is asking you therefore you must make and read some kind of notes, I hear the one's on this site are good! laugh.gif There are also notes at the start of chapters in the Maths in Action textbook and if your tecaher has given you any notes read them!
Half ideas,half quality, half a million pound law suit!

Yeah, as people have said, past papers the way to revise. But if you don't understand the basic maths, you need to learn that first. If that's the case, I'd try Bitesize as well as the basic course revision stuff on this site -- it doesn't hurt to learn the stuff extra well.

The 2000 Paper is famous for being the hardest of the Higher Still papers. If you have it in a past paper book (I don't, I just have random papers), I've been told that the
specimen paper based upon the 2000 paper is very similar to the 2000 exam. A couple completely different questions, some with values changed and some the exact same.

Of course there's also the normal (revised) specimen paper paper, but it's far too easy. And there's also the non-revised specimen paper, which has at least one question not in the revised specimen!
