What method do you use...flash cards, mind maps, questions, I want to know....

The process i do for almost everything is:
1. Make flash cards on a topic from revision guide (I pose questions to myself e.g. Define electronegativity?)
2. I then learn the flashcards off by heart....(this is the most painful part)
3. I then do topic specific questions
4. Then I do exam papers

I find this method really effective. I'm really not very clever and was always average at my school, however before I did my GCSE's i discovered this method and I managed to get straight A*'s..... )))!

I think it is so effective because you read, write, say out loud and learn all the information. (it's bound to go in at one of those stages).

So that's what I do, but what about you?

I'm doing AS maths, further maths, bio and chem and I mainly just do past papers.
I mark it and try to understand what i got wrong.
Before this, i understand the basic fundamentals of the theory and in chem i've also been doing questions by topic.

I sometimes make small audio clips of certain topics in my subjects and then I listen those audio clips while i'm travelling to school in the bus, studying in the library and while i'm sleeping. Its a really effective revision method for audio learners.

Wow, thats inventive and I imagine it is very effective. I would just hate to listen to my own voice all day.

Yh after a few days I didn't really like listening to my own voice so I decided to be a bit spontaneous and recorded myself explaining the information in different accents. It surprisingly made it easier to remember the information and it was sort of funny at the same time.
