Which book do you guys think is the best for practice questions?

Atarnotes, checkpoints, examproguides or something else?

Hey mate,

Personally, I would suggest that using the VCAA past exams (including the Northern Hemisphere ones) are your best bets for revision here. I also used the Topic Tests from ATARNotes, but be aware that some questions on there are not updated for the newest study designs.

And the forum as well - there's a lot of interesting questions going on & people will be more than happy to help you with them

Cheers,

VCAA is the gold standard obviously then the following can be good at times:
In decreasing difficulty: iTute, Kilbaha, Neap, MAV, Insight/Heffernan/TSSM/TSFX/Legac/Enagage

VCAA exams probably sit between MAV and the last 6.

I think the best exams are probably MAV/Heffernan in terms of replicating VCAA. Neap is quite good for the difficult questions too.

There's heaps and heaps of past VCAA exams going back years so I'd definitely try all of those before moving on to third-party exam questions. Even though the study design has changed, it hasn't changed much (in maths specifically) and there are some awesome people here on the forums who have made lists of stuff that has changed to help you out with that.

In my experience, checkpoints was a waste of time but my school had a plethora of past exams available to students - maybe ask your teachers?
