Well the textbook list will come out in mid-late August from what I've been reading on the forums, so in terms of books you can wait until then. Even if you do know what books to get, I suggest buying used, so you can save money on books. Besides knowing what books to get and who to get them from, I think you should leave the rest of the preparation until the first week of September or just not prepare much at all.

If you want to prepare for uni, i sugeest that you take a look at this math review:

Also, you could go here and see what courses you're gonna be taking in first year. So if you click on "chem 1e03" it's gonna show you the topics covered in the course. In that case, you could go to youtube and watch vids about a specific topic (e.g. "reactivity" or "electrochemistry ").
I found an online course outline for phys 1d03. Again if you are interested, you can watch some vids related to the topics covered in the course.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
