    Make pocket sized individual flash cards for your case studies also have a list of the case studies you are doing. Mind maps are also a great way of revising or you could make a power point i find the website prezi great for making power points xxxx

    Make really brightly coloured posters with the rock cycle and things like that. Make flashcards with key concepts and words on and test yourself and with friends. I also found that youtube has loads of geography videos and songs on certain topics that stick in your head.

    i think the best way to revise case studies is to do the following (it worked of me)
    • make a fact sheet for each topic which contains each case study. for each case study do a few bullet points in things like background info, short term effects/responses, long term effects/responses, successes/failures (these categories will depend on the case study though)
    • from those fact sheets make mind maps of each case study
    • do practice questions
    • remember though, you don't need to know loads of facts/stats cause you won't use them all in a exam. instead remember a few well. also don't worry if you can't remember an exact figure you can round them up or even make them up as long as the figure is still realisitc. e.g. if 345 people died in an earthquake you could round that down to 300 as in reality no one will have an exact figure on how many people died anyway.
    • don't overload yourself with info, keep it simple. when learning processes, perhaps do them in a few steps so you don;t have too much info to learn-you will understand it more then

    hope this helps
