Practice a lot, but make sure you understand the questions you do. Methods is about applying knowledge to different questions, which comes from understanding how you answer a question and how you can use concepts to answer a different one. Often, the marks you lose aren’t from familiar questions which you’ve seen before, but from completely unfamiliar questions which push you to apply certain concepts that they want to test you on. It’s similar in physics, being able to apply formulae will only get you so far, if you want to excel, make sure you understand the concepts. (E. g. fundamental theorem of calculus, statistical inference/point estimates, applications of integration)
