Ive never had this problem before. with other subjects i just seem to get the hang of them im willing ot revise for topics which i dont even have exams for yet but this topic just seems to put me to sleep! Any advice??

    I had a similar crisis the other day, I'm in second year like you and couldn't figure out where to start!

    I've made a start on my revision for exams in May now, and I printed off all the lecture slides for that exam and looked back on my notes and annotated round the slides bits that were missing or studies that would be helpful to remember, then read over them to make sure they were easy to understand and remember. It's a long process but if you can split it up into different topics to shorten your revision into smaller chunks it will seem far less overwhelming. I also type my revision notes up, it's a personal preference as it helps the info sink in better and I sometimes struggle to read my own handwriting!
