    Firstly you need to determine what type of learner you are. There are 3 types
    Aural [ listening to things]
    Kinetic [ learning through doing things]
    I am a visual learner so my notes are brightly coloured and computerised as I struggle to read my own writing

    Revision techniques can include
    Revision cards or flash cards
    Spider Diagrams
    Make notes
    Condense your notes into smaller pieces
    Recording yourself
    Use bright coloured markers/highlighters
    Post it notes around your room
    Get someone to test you
    Use the computer to type notes

    There are loads more online so go research

    But TESTING each of these out is essential as what works for someone like me may not work for you
    Hope this helps
