I'm an auditory learner, so I learn best by hearing things. I learn visually, but to a lesser extent. Sometimes I'm a combination of the two, for example I like watching videos on certain topics. Anyway...
the usual way of studying is to read a textbook. Been there done that. Then taking notes without looking at your textbook. I've tried this technique a few times, combined with past papers, I STILL didn't get the grades I wanted.
I've tried voice recording a few notes but I feel like that's not enough. I know people have their own individual ways to learn, but for you what is the best revision technique?

Does actually taking notes from a textbook work? watch

Well like you said it differs between people.
If you are sure auditory is best for you, have a conversation with someone (a classmate?) over what the textbook says. Read it together, outloud, and discuss it so that it sinks in better.

I read the textbook. An especially good time to read is right before I go to sleep, I think because brain stores information in REM sleep and they last longer that way
