Complete Mechanics tutorial with checklist, presentations, notes and exam style questions. You can find your own way of using the materials. A suggestion would be to work through the checklist and self-assess your level of confidence in the topic, identifying areas for further study. Then go to the presentations and read through these. The presentations have clear explanations, lots of practice questions and worked examples. You can then try the workbook questions for the Mechanics topic, which you can self-mark using the mark scheme and video run through provided.
