    Hello there! I'm fairly new to this place so I'm sorry for asking such a stupid question.

    Anyway, I thought it'd be a good idea for me to write up revision notes online for the subjects I am currently revising for. This is to help myself and anyone who's interested in reading them

    I'm specifically writing for Physics AS and I was wondering - what's the best way to incorporate diagrams? Should I be using Paint, which is admittedly frustrating at times, or is there better program to use?

    Also, I noticed when trying to preview my notes using the "math" function, the preview still shows the "<math>XY</math>" brackets and doesn't show the mathematical work in equation form - why has this happened?

    Thank you in advance!

    If you have the money then I suggest you buy a revision guide. Use the notes in the guide and if you need more then make them. Saves time but takes money

    For line diagrams it's best to use vector graphics software. There's a few open source vector graphics programs available, or you could just use the drawing tools Powerpoint, you can then export as various different image files.

    Reseach shows that actually recalling infomation is far better for revision than making diagrams. Just to save you from wasting your time.
