    You mean efficient. Do a chapter a day, making notes and doing past paper questions.

    It's about timing. Do a chapter each day. Don't fall behind, otherwise it just gets worse and worse.

    It's chemistry, so knowledge builds and self-references throughout the unit. Start at the beginning and work to the end.

    I usually do my revision in a week also. However it's not easy. In that week i usually do at least 8 hours revision a day and cut myself off from everything.

    - I usually do 2 chapters a day, i know a lot of people will suggest doing 1 however i get bored really easily with one chapter ;P
    - Test yourself on a topic whenever you've finished it. Doing past papers, questions in the book, etc. Then test yourself a day after so that it's stored in your long-term memory.
    - Past papers are essential after you've finished the whole of unit 1. Past papers will give you an idea of how the questions will present themselves and test your knowledge at the same time.
    - Make a revision schedule for the week and stick to it. I know it may seem like everyones telling you to do this and you feel like it's not important but it is!

    As for revision schedule:
    - every 20mins take a 2 min break: go to the toilet, get some tea, etc.
    - after 1 hour of revision take a 15mins
    - Dont do more than 3 hours without taking a long a break
