studying for advanced powerboat instructor

looking for a bit of advice from anyone who is already an advanced powerboat instructor or higher.
I am doing the course in just under a month and I'm starting to get a little nervous, was looking on some suggestions for prep work/studying that I could do before the course.
I done me advanced exam nearly 5 years ago an my PBI nearly 4. I have just ordered the RYA's navigations exercises book. and am running 2 pb2 courses in the next month to sharpen as much up as possible.

Anything else I can do??

Ask the trainer who is examining you? and the School your'e working through. The advance course sylabus is published in the RYA G20? Go over the sylabus and practice that

Sit in on a course to see what happens also the Intermediate course as you will be able to teach both if you pass.
