Well if it's exams you are after specifically, then you'd probably have to ask your school (as posting exams on here is illegal).

However, I'd check this thread out for many good free options for exams: Practice Exams - Where to get them for free?

In addition to those, there are also many study guides that have spesh questions, including the A+ Notes, the NEAP studyguides, exambusters, checkpoints, etc.

Can't remember which ones were the best, but NEAP, Hef wasn't bad, VCAA (lol) and MAV.

I think Thushan likes Kilbaha.

Yeah in terms of difficulty, Kilbaha and iTute are the hardest, then Hef, NEAP, TSSM, and then VCAA and MAV. Wouldn't touch TSFX or the others if I didn't have to.

pi, I thought MAV was pretty challenging!

You're right, Kilbaha is hard, but they're a challenge, that challenge aspect pushes you to work harder, so I found that I ended up doing really well on them.

I think Heffernan is easier than MAV, that's just my opinion though.

You guys already did prac exam papers for spesh? :O
Btw, do you have any sources for kinematics? I found questions about motion quite challenging for me :(

Haha, most of the people here have already finished spesh :P

I started doing them in term 4.

How many prac exam papers did you do before the exam?

And now, to blow your mind. METHODS ONLY
Probability. Input this EXACTLY, and you can get capital letters by pressing the button with an arrow pointing up (its next to 2nd).

Define noc(l,u,m,s)=TI.Stat.normCdf(l,u,m,s)

Then press enter. Then press 2nd - ( to get to VAR-LINK), then find "noc", select it and press F1 and archive this variable.

Now in the homescreen, if you want to find the probability in a normal distribution that X lies between l and m, with a mean of m and standard deviation of n, then you input:
noc(l,u,m,s)

eg, for a normal distribution with mean 5, standard deviation 2, and you want to find Pr(3<X<6), you input
noc(3,6,5,2) and it will give you the answer of 0.532807

I chose l for lower bound, u for upper bound, m for mean and s for standard deviation. For the rest of these, p will be probability, n will be number of trials, x will be number of successes (for binomial probability)

After each input, Archive the variable to avoid losing it later!

Define ino(p,m,s)=TI.Stat.invNorm(p,m,s)

This is the inverse normal function.

Define bip(n,p,x)=TI.Stat.binomPdf(n,p,x)
This is for binomial probability.

Define bic(n,p,x1,x2)=TI.Stat.binomCdf(n,p,x1,x2)
This is for cumulative binomial probability, ie, if x does not take a single value, but a range of values.

Excuse me, I'm trying to do this but I get an errorbox saying "Invalid pathname" when I type in the "Define"s. What might be wrong ?

Try PM-ing the user Abes22, as he's the one who wrote that particular guide (I was just the one who compiled them all (I also wrote one too)) and he used the 89 back when he was in VCE :)

Most of us finished Spesh last year :P
Kinematics, you probably find challenging because you don't do physics, so conceptually you won't have your head around it the way most physics students would, so just bear with it, it will get better over time. Practice.

How many prac exam papers did you do before the exam? 

Probably around 20-30 whatnot

What do you mean by really good?
