    If you're doing A2 shouldn't you have some idea what you need to do? Just go through exam papers and if you can't do a question (if I were you) look it up in your notes or revision then try and answer the question. You'll soon get an idea of which areas you need to revise most.

    depends on how you learn? You tried doing massive flow diagrams on A3 paper? Works particularly well if you have organic reaction schemes to remember.

    I've done a huge one for the pollutant gases from cars before, fills an entire whiteboard (see attached).
