1. Create mind maps including the terminology, the definitions associated with the terms and then make reference to numbered points in typed up notes to further explanation. That way, if it comes up in an examination you're ready to answer it no problem.

2. By revision flip cards and then write on them the key words and go through them. They're really good for remember mnemonics as you can flip through each one as you say it. Continue doing this and repeat. Alternatively, if you want to save cash then you can use Powerpoint, enter the words on each slide and then play the slideshow. You're effectively brain training yourself to remember. As each word goes through say it. Eventually you'll even get used to the pattern and you'll most likely be able to anticipate what is going to come next.

3. Good sleep and time management skills are vital. If you want to make the most of your time and get a lot of revision done then you should sleep well, set time to get revision done but also set time to enjoy yourself. You need to relax and unwind otherwise you'll stress yourself out and enter the exam with a clouded mind. In this situation it'll be hard to recall from memory what you've revised. You want to avoid that happening at all costs. The best thing you can do is draw up a revision timetable. You have one for school or college. Why not home?

4. Listen to podcasts or audio sources with the same information in. Watch videos on YouTube with the same information in. Why am I telling you this? Different things register with different people depending on learning styles. By accessing the information through visual, auditory and kinaesthetic methods you will provide yourself the best opportunity to retain the information and it is much more likely to sink in and be remembered.

Good luck
