The best way to learn word patterns (meaning verbs + prepositions, adjectives + prepositions or nouns + prepositions) is to learn them as a short phrase instead of learning them on their own, for example:
depend on = I normally pass exams easilty, but it depends on the day
consist of = What does the course consist of exactly?
You should use word patterns in various different ways such as speaking, reading, writing and listening. It is very important to use them in contexts that you can remember. You should use MNEMONICS to help you recall them or even associate them with an image.
Here are some free PDF exercises for you to practice at home.
