    hi
    i find it very hard to motivate myself to just plough through books, so does anyone have any ideas about any good methods? Or is it just a case of sitting down, reading?

    thanks
    Sam

    And doing exam-style questions from the text/revision book; when you feel confident (after all the syllabus had been completed), do as many past-papers as possible.

    That's it - really.

    Read and take notes. Once you have read all you need, condense the notes into brainstorms and revision cards. Create revision games. Do whatever works best for you. As for motivating yourself, revise somewhere with little to distract you where you will be most productive. This might be the library, school, wherever.

    I always use Mindmaps which you can summarise a paragraph into a keyword or two. This way, when you read it, it'll click into your brain.

    COLOURS!

    it depends what kind of learner you are
    I mostly use colours like red for important facts and green for examples etc.

    - Make a checklist of everything you need to kno.
    - Summarise the entire exam if you can on one side of a4, but make sure you can expand on the pts.
    - Do as many past papers as you can; questions only repeat themselves.
    - And enjoy your revision, theres nothing worse than sitting down and hating what your learning.
