    Record key facts etc, put on ipod, listen while sleeping, don't revise while awake and have fun meanwhile?

    Getting the fridge off TSR would be a good start.

    Cramming works best when you get rid of all distractions. Like TSR and the rest of the Internet.

    Go over your notes before going to bed, even if it is just a quick 10 minute scan.
    Discuss it with people, either in your class or explain a theory to someone who doesn't know anything about it. Get them to test you on certain facts. What/Where/When/Why/How.

    Practice papers, practice questions. Go over the primary and secondary material if it is applicable. Stick post it notes or reference cards all over your room, or around the house if you are at home. It is only for a few days but it should help you to remember.

    I was going to say stay off TSR but no, it's like yo-yo dieting - don't say no to chocolate/TSR and then have a binge later or at the weekend; you just put the weight back on. Have regular breaks, TSR, TV, chat, snack, walk etc are fine but don't go overboard and spend 5 hours on TSR for example but only 1 hour revising in a whole day. Be strict for the next few days.
