      Soh Cah Toa helps me best - just write it at the top of your page every time you attempt a question.

      Pythagoras' theorem...for me, it just comes up so often it's drilled into my far as I know its in our log books.

      Also remember special triangles, inverse sin/cos/tan (when getting the angle) and try lots of problems. (sorry don't know if you're HL or OL?)

      My maths teacher taught us a funny way of remembering sin, cos and tan

      Sin: Silly Old Hitler

      Cos: Couldn't Advance His

      Tan: Troops Over Asia

      Pythagoras theorem is as easy as ABC!

      a^2 = b^2 + c^2

      (just remember, 'a' is the longest side)

      Hope it helps :)
