    what helps me is if i go through a topic, write notes, and then answer exam questions on the topic. and just repeat this for all topics in the unit. then do as many unit papers possible!

    hope this helps!

    Read, then write notes on it in bullet point form and memorise it by saying it aloud till you have got it in your head.
    Do past paper questions or just look at the answers and memorise it for essay based subjects. But make sure you understand the "key concepts" so you can apply it elsewhere.

    They are a useful revision aid tip from which you remember things in a topic with a word. ie. VICMEALS helps me to remember all of the eight fold path 'rights'

    Hope this helps, btw I'm new on tsr

    It may be! I'm not sure :O but that's how I remember it!
    A proper mnemonic is the Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain for rainbow colours

    My way is the best for me, I wasted time doing a lot of those other revision techniques and making colorful notes etc, I just found notes and memorizing saying it aloud is the best, really don't waste your time doing anything else during exam season.
    Try the other methods only when you have more free time.
