I always went down the route of consolidating notes into revision cards then further into flash cards.
TSRs sister site www.getrevising.co.uk allows you to do this at no cost.
If you want to ensure you have learnt this there are also subscriber tools which let you extract key words in your revision cards or notes for you to drag and drop back in.
This kind of active learning is known to be more effective that rereading notes as you are forcing your brain to absorb the context of what you're reading.
Hope this helps

Ignore the advert above.
To remember your notes you need to review them regularly over the next 3 month period. The best way to do this is to go over them the next day quickly so you refresh your memory, then look at them again 1 week later, and then 2 weeks after that and then monthly after that. This will make them stick in your memory.
