What did you use for revision during GCSE/AS/A2 and did it work for you?
At GCSE, I used revision guides and past papers because textbooks had too much information (a lot of which I didn't actually need to know) and my notes were too jumbled to revise from properly. That worked for me, but I have no idea whether it will at A Level.

well for gcse i was all over the place to be honest.
as mental as it may sound i wrote out information i needed to know and it's like i inscribed it into my memory (my form of cramming-although i wouldn't remember the info for a long time).
past papers helped a lot for science.
although i got excellent grades i had to change the way i learnt things and revised.
i'm doing 3 AS- maths bio and chem.
for maths- it's more practice than anything else
chemistry- for the theory bit i use chemguide which is a fantastic website alongside jim clarks chemistry calculations for the mathsy bit.
bio- cuz notes aren't so detailed in class i have a thick bio book kept at home called 'policies and processes' - heinmann to add to class notes.
so essentially wen it comes to near exam time i only have to use a highlighter and my notes which are all detailed and in order alongside past papers and im sorted.
