Hey guys,

I'm planning to do Physics 3/4 next year (2019), so I'm planning to buy a study guide and some topic tests/exam styled questions.
So which companies do you think make the best products for Physics?
I know Checkpoints and Neap are available for just questions, A+ and AtarNotes for topic tests+notes, but what do you think are the best?
If any of you guys have experience with multiple of them, can you please let me know how you feel about them.

Thanks a load guys!!!

I only had checkpoints (it was on the school booklist) & honestly it was a bit disappointing.  That was back when the study design was first released so maybe that's why it had several errors in it & that might be fixed in new additions but yeah,  that wasn't great. 

In terms of resources,  I encourage you to also look for (legally) free resources online as there are heaps at the right level for the study design.

Cheers miniturtle!

Like checkpoints, are there any company practice papers that are possibly disappointing too?  :P

Right now though I just want to get the resources so next year when I need them I'll have something I can just use to prepare for every one of my SAC's. And then I won't have to waste time when I could be preparing to try to find stuff.
So, if anyone's able, can you tell your experience and opinions on the different brands.
Also, can you give me the websites where I can find exam styled questions free then?

I didn't buy any physics resources not on the book list (just checkpoints and textbook) so I can't help too much from that side but there's stuff on YouTube, KhanAcademy, physics classroom, the Victorian physics teachers website & of course from VCAA.

These won't all give you questions to go through, but understanding is highly important as well :)

Good advice above, just gonna throw this in...

Make sure that you complete the current NHT exam as practise, 'cause it's the closest to the one ya gonna get...
