    Well, first of all, I mostly write up the topic from the book in my own words, then type it up onto the computer whilst condensing it down to note form, which I can then carry around with me..so suppose I am on the bus or train, I normally whip it out and go through my notes

    For me, I generalise the answer for this question.

    Everyone can revise most effective however way they normally revise as long as there's no distraction.

    With distraction, even the best revisers can't revise o.o

    I find Flashcards work really well for me, mostly cause I have to first type them up so I'm reading through all my work and textbooks to find key points. Doing past questions helps me a bit, as it gives me an idea of what level I'm at, so its more of a confidence thing lol.
    I also find reading things aloud helps, re-writing up notes and lots of reading before bed.
